Bringing together Human Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence to turn unprecedented volumes into information of value.

The deluge is coming

Unprecedented volumes of information are generated each day by business and government. By 2017, businesses will create over 130 million emails per day. Legal cases can produce as many as 20 million documents during discovery, which will increase 50 times by 2020. Government agencies will continue to struggle in meeting their publicly mandated obligations. The risk of inaction or inefficiency will bear greater and greater cost. Current tools and methodologies are not geared to efficiently handle problems of this magnitude.

Merriam solves the problem of large volume document exploration

By marrying AI and HCI, we use cutting edge technology to make document exploration a seamless experience. Merriam acts as a virtual archivist, guiding users along the way and responding to features of the documents that interest users the most. Merriam enhances human intelligence and allows for intuitive interaction and discovery.
