The Scientific Council of Perfect Memory mission's
Perfect Memory has developed an advanced technology, over the years, making it possible to industrialise the principles of fundamental research, in connection with knowledge engineering, and to give life to its mission; that of producing, preserving, and exploiting the stories of knowledge.
Every day, in an increasingly disembodied world, we observe a massification of data. Their structural complexity, linked, both to their heterogeneity, but also to the links that unite them, reduces the capacity for humans to embrace overviews, to interpret, to grasp, and to understand the world that is being created before their eyes.
At Perfect Memory, we believe in the need to put knowledge back at the centre of business issues. We believe that it is urgent to create tools, to offer human beings the means to organise and develop the sharing and circulation of knowledge, produced and exploited by human collectives.
Why a Scientific Council?
Knowledge engineering is at the heart of Perfect Memory’s business. As such, the constitution of a Scientific Council is a logical consequence of the evolution of Perfect Memory.
The role of the Scientific Council, fundamental to the company’s development strategy, is to guide future development and preserve the competitive advantage of Perfect Memory, in terms of technological advancement.
In particular, the Scientific Council allows:
• Maintaining the link between scientific invention, technological innovation, and structural market trends;
• Having a strategic and scientific monitoring body, on the technologies mastered, or in the process of such being acquired;
• Establishing a coherent roadmap, in terms of industrial development and R&D developments;
• Benefiting from the expertise of scientists recognised in their field of activity.
What is the scientific scope of Perfect Memory?
The identity of Perfect Memory is based on three fields of scientific research:
• Semantic data modelling;
• Intellectual technologies;
• The challenges of preserving the heritage of knowledge.
Perfect Memory technology has been designed to meet two crucial challenges, as follows:
• Aggregating large volumes of data and enabling their interoperability. To do this, Perfect Memory has based its research on ontologies as a reconciliation model, which, through their ability to create a layer of abstraction, make it possible to compare and make analogous data of different natures.
• Ultimately accessing data intelligibility. The various AI and machine learning treatments, applied to the data, and then their organisation within a tailor-made ontology, allow the restitution of the data in their context of relevance, and their interpretation as knowledge by the end-users.
The interoperability and intelligibility of data are the fundamental axes, allowing the preservation and transmission of the memory of usage, the working memory, and the cultural memory of the company. They allow contextualised access to all the company’s knowledge since its creation, regardless of the location, nature, or language, in which the original data was produced. This is what we call “preserving the knowledge narrative”.
