Connecting people and things the smart way

Social Thingum ® is a startup founded on a high-profile team, combining skills and experience from academy and industry. We develop innovative ICT and algorithms to connect people and objects through Intelligent Social Networks. Our Social & Smart paradigm combines learning and interaction potentialities through the synergy between Artificial Intelligence and Social Networks.

We have a young and dynamic work team, composed by different experts from the academic world and several strategic contacts with various universities in Milan.

In particular, the start-up has created a Social Intelligent Learning Management System (WhoTeach ®) that supports skills development for students, professionals and managers by aggregating and spreading expert knowledge.

Moreover, we are currently developing the EaSy 4.0 project, with the aim of creating a revolutionary technological infrastructure that improves the human-machine interaction with appliances. It provides advice for an optimized use of appliances, relying on an Intelligent Social Network that monitors users' behaviour. Such advice are totally customized and user-centered.

We operate in some cutting-edge computer science fields, offering original and tailor-made technological solutions. Our approach involves methodologies such as cognitive systems of knowledge representation and artificial and computational intelligence. The team is responsible for R&D and consulting projects in Machine Learning, Big Data Analytics, Internet of Things, Smart Living, Recommender System and WEB 4.0.

We also exploit 3 European projects: NETT, where WhoTeach platform was realized and tested, and SandS and Elliot, in the IoT area.
