reactive search Reactive Search

We realize software and services for reactive business intelligence, interactive visualization, Learning and Intelligent OptimizatioN (a combination of modeling, machine learning and optimization). Our competitive edge is caused by a unique integration of automated learning and optimization, to facilitate the interaction between domain experts, decision makers, and "reactive" software. The founders and collaborators have more than twenty years of experience and a track of successful real-world applications in wide different areas.

Learning and Intelligent OptimizatioN means combining learning with modeling and problem-solving / optimization. A crucial component of LIONsolver is Reactive Search Optimization (RSO), a robust and efficient method for solving difficult problems. The word reactive hints at a ready response to events while alternative solutions are tested. Its strength lies in the introduction of high-level skills often associated to the human brain, such as learning from the past experience, learning on the job, rapid analysis of alternatives, ability to cope with incomplete information, quick adaptation to new situations and events. This is the main inspiration source for inserting online machine learning techniques into the optimization engine of LIONsolver. This is why we call it "the LION with a HUMAN touch".

Grapheur is the software for data analysis developed by Reactive Search. Grapheur is a one-of-a-kind product, designed and developed following the fundamental concepts of analytical accuracy, innovative visualization and ease of use. Using a simple matrix as input data (organized in a csv file) Grapheur guarantees full compatibility with any existing database or BI system already in use. A vast variety of classical analysis, like histograms, graphs, plots and charts is calculated and displayed quickly in a simple, yet captivating way. Similarity maps and 7D plots are the advanced features of the program: if there is a way to easily search for information inside your data and to present the results with effective and eye-catching visualizations, Grapheur lets you find it.
