It was that eclectic academic background, coupled with the belief that in the future all software would learn from data as a core capability that gave rise to Digital Reasoning. Tim and his team at Digital Reasoning work closely with leaders in government and industry to solve extraordinarily valuable and morally compelling problems in National Security, Finance, and other markets by automating the understanding of human communication.
