Nara Logics, Inc., a computational neuroscience company that provides personalization to deep Web data, has entered into a strategic partnership with Singapore Telecommunications Ltd.
The pact will usher in an entirely new category of search with SingTel (News - Alert) integrating Nara’s proprietary cloud-based neural network and algorithm into their products first in Malaysia, followed by Australia and Singapore.
Officials with Nara Logics said that the “Nara Neural Network” is a proprietary system of massive and parallel cloud computing servers that analyze and re-index big data at Internet-scale by emulating human intelligence and computation based on modern neuroscience principals.
