Noema, Inc. is a software company headquartered in Manhattan with a subsidiary Noema (India) Pvt. Ltd. in Mumbai. It specializes in artificial intelligence, particularly in natural language software applications.
Artificial agents with increasingly sophisticated cognitive abilities will become widespread over the coming decades in a broad range of contexts. Communication skills will form a critical component of these cognitive abilities because human users will have to interact with these artificial agents in a variety of modes to access information and perform actions. Understanding meanings of utterances and generating utterances to convey intended meanings are central to communication. Theoretically and practically, problems involving meaning are extraordinarily complex and subtle, but Noema is developing technologies that will offer increasingly sophisticated natural language agents in a variety of contexts.
Noema has won two National Science Foundation Awards for its technological innovations.
