  • Streamwise D.I. – delivers data-enhanced automation and decision intelligence so mining companies can process real-time information from settling ponds, tailing dams, water management and environmental monitoring processes.
  • Hacarus – provides highly accurate AI tools from small data sets to develop explainable solutions to be used in the medical and manufacturing fields, enabling humans to make better, faster and more reliable decisions based on AI-driven insights.
  • Timeshifter – addresses the problem of circadian and sleep disruption by bringing the latest in sleep and circadian neuroscience into its app and optimise the user’s sleep, alertness, health and quality of life.
