psyML is a company born from the growing need to better understand the psychological states people express online, as human interaction becomes increasingly digital. As technologies like Facebook, Google, and thousands of other online consumer services become ubiquitous in our lives, it is socially important and measurably valuable to include systems that account for the individual human, who is currently lost in the analytical ocean of directed clicks.
psyML’s goal is to put humanity back into the system. From consumer behavior to online entertainment to critical services like healthcare, finance and social services, psyML helps foster a transparent, supportive relationship between ourselves and our machines.
At its core, psyML is a company dedicated to the measurement and understanding of psychological and cognitive states within any digital technology, so as to provide systems that lead to positive change at unprecedented scale. This philosophy was first actualized at eHarmony, where psyML CEO Galen Buckwalter, PhD, developed the first large-scale usage of psychometrics, helping match people for personal relationships.
Over the course of 20+ years, Dr. Buckwalter has explored this thesis within a variety of verticals, developing a deep expertise in understanding assessment at scale and discovering a like-minded partner with whom to forge next wave digital innovation, Kai Mildenberger.
Kai has been building software and data-based ventures over his career, from enterprise class business applications in ERP (MK Group at Computer Associates, GLOVIA) and security (Access360, now IBM TIM), to disruptive vertical search (SupplyFrame).
For the last 5 years, Kai has been investigating the propagation of influence across social network structures to better understand its impact on the social, political and economical environment. With the advent of social speech, the centuries-old rulebook of mass media has been upended, and companies need to understand how to apply emerging tools to build transparency and resonance into modern communication.
Let psyML help bring the potent combination of psychometrics and deep learning to your business goals at the intersection of human and artificial intelligence.
