AINIGMA Technologies brings together a team of biomedical engineers, medical doctors and business consultants with a long track record in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions, mainly, but not exclusively, for Healthcare applications. The team of AINIGMA has been involved in both research and commercial projects with different roles, which have given us valuable experience in the development of AI algorithms, alongside with expert consulting, cognitive knowledge and efficient project management of large-scale European and national projects. The diverse background of the team members allows us to identify and address real-life problems from multiple perspectives and promote the exploitable results effectively in the right market direction.
The vision of the team is to make the job of Healthcare stakeholders easier and more efficient.
The realization of this vision arises from the introduction of a set of AI solutions, by exploiting Big Data analytics and Machine Learning techniques to enable the provision of high-quality products and services.
Alan Mathison Turing (23/06/1912- 07/06/1954) was a British mathematician, computer scientist, cryptographer, philosopher, theoretical biologist and is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and Artificial Intelligence (AI). In 1936, Turing showed that, in general, the Entscheidung problem has no resolution, in “simpler words” he proved that no consistent formal system of arithmetic has an effective decision method. It was during his work on the Entscheidung problem that Turing invented the universal Turing machine, an abstract computing machine that encapsulates the fundamental logical principles of the digital computer. Turing claimed that everything humanly computable can also be computed by the universal Turing machine, what we call now a computer.
Alan Turing became known to the wide public by the movie “Imitation game” and his work during the World War II to decrypt the Enigma machine. The Enigma machine was an encryption device developed and used in the early- to mid-20th century to protect commercial, diplomatic and military communication. The encryption of Enigma was considered unbreakable. Turing and others designed a code-breaking machine known as the Bombe with which they managed to decrypt Enigma and play a significant role in the outcome of the World War.
The word Enigma (“AINΙΓΜΑ” in Greek) means riddle. By combining the Greek spelling of the word enigma and as an attempt to honor A. Turing for his contribution in the field of AI, we decided to name our company AINIGMA Technologies.
Other than the decryption of Enigma, one of Turing’s main contribution in Machine Learning is, what subsequently became known as, the Turing test (or “Imitation Game”), which is a method of inquiry in artificial intelligence (AI) for determining whether a computer is capable of thinking like a human being. It shall be noted that till now no computer or AI chatbot has ever succeeded in passing the Turing test….
