The Clever Sense Platform makes sense of the real world by harvesting and sifting through the vast amount of information available on the Web. The platform is designed to connect the online world with the offline world: delivering the right information to the users in the right context (right time, right place, right intent).
At the heart of the Clever Sense Platform is the Serendipity Engine: a personalized context-aware right-time discovery engine. The Serendipity Engine adds a layer of real-time machine learning algorithms and intelligent agent architecture on top of the Clever Sense Interest Graph. It goes beyond traditional recommendation engines by incorporating user's anonymous interest profile and current context (time, location, intent, and social context) into curation of its recommendations.
The Alfred mobile app is a personal concierge who provides high-quality recommendations from the start. Coming soon for iOS devices, Alfred recommends places that will truly shine for users, based on what he learns about their personal tastes and his extensive knowledge from the general web. Alfred, who has been called "Pandora for the real world", provides increasingly fine-tuned suggestions, personalized to the location, time, and person.
Clever Sense was founded by two Stanford Engineering graduates in 2008. Our technical advisory includes Prof. Jeff Ullman (Sergey Brin's former advisor at Stanford) and Sep Kamvar (creator of Google's Personalized Search).
