Francisco Webber is co-founder and CEO of Cortical.io, a company that develops natural language understanding solutions for analyzing the big text data of large enterprises. The solutions are based on the actual meaning, rather than on statistical occurrences, of text.
Francisco’s interest in information technology developed during his medical studies, when he was involved in medical data processing. Over two decades he explored search engine technologies and documentation systems in different contexts but became increasingly frustrated with the limitations of statistical methods.
Francisco recognized that the brain was the only high-performing system when it came to natural language understanding. While closely following developments in neuroscience, he formulated his theory of Semantic Folding, which models how the brain processes language data. In 2011, he co-founded Cortical.io to apply the principles of cerebral processing to machine learning and text processing and solve real-world use cases related to big data.
