Helios Takes AI to the Next Level



Helios is a revolutionary new approach to Enterprise Software Design, forming a marriage between Wisdom and Artificial Intelligence in a constantly simulated environment to provide scalable real-world solutions.

Where Traditional AI Approaches Fall Short...
  • Heavily rules-based approaches work best only when you know what you are looking for and when all possible outcomes are known.
  • Machine Learning by itself is not well-suited for open ended analysis or to real-time changes in constraints (like changes in business rules), as it would require significant re-training time.
  • Deep Learning by itself can provide an answer, but it can’t explain why in a detailed human understandable form, which is an imperative requirement in some areas - like law enforcement.
Helios has distinct advantages due to its architecture...
  • Thrives in environments where not all variables, rules, and scenarios are well understood
  • Helios is always thinking, it is not a silo AI "black box" to be consulted, but the backbone that connects and carries out the processing of all of the data across the Enterprise - observing, discovering, and improving itself
  • Seamlessly pairs various AI approaches (e.g., machine learning) with its own unique AI approach
  • Looks backward for forensic reconstruction of an "answer" (e.g., legal due-process rights)
  • Looks forward for use in planning
  • Ideal for environments where you want to know "why", not just "what"

Guiding Wisdom

Accelerate Learning, Accommodate Business Logic.

Leveraging a proprietary simulation approach, Helios incorporates human learning, reasoning, and perceptual processes into an AI platform. This Wisdom helps to quickly and successfully process data through your Enterprise achieving the objectives defined for the platform without months of training time.


Scales to Handle Your Complete Dataverse

Helios is designed to be fueled by a universe of applicable data from across all areas of the Enterprise, as well as external sources. Connections buried deep within the data can be automatically uncovered, tested, and adapted into the platform, altering the existing Wisdom or generating new Guidance, all while being able to be explained in a human understandable format.


Combining Goals, Actions, and Data into Actors

Helios breathes life into your data by constantly simulating the Goals and Actions of each and every piece of data (or object) as it moves through your solution, learning from its "experiences & assessments” to improve its performance and dynamically adapt & augment the guiding Wisdom with these new insights. Like the human brain, Helios doesn’t “wait around” for you to ask a question, instead it is always thinking, assessing, identifying & testing connections and reporting on new discoveries.

Designed for unlimited scalability, Helios Hyperscale architecture makes scaling the largest simulations effortless. Use Helios' scalability to power massive simulations, dynamically provision resources, and benefit from deeper AI insights and discoveries.


Key Features and Functionality Driving the Helios Platform


All data that enters the simulation is composed into dynamic objects. These objects make up the common fabric of the simulation, being able to represent everything from a simple social media post to a complex actor such as a sports player and everything in between.


Dynamic objects are autonomous, and are capable of navigating through the simulation to satisfy their own set of goals. These goals can vary from one class of object to the next, and even between two object instances of the same type. The Helios Goal system is not a simple framework to construct business rules, orchestrations, or system behaviors, but a completely new way describing what we call "Wisdom". It is this guiding wisdom that objects use to govern their behavior.


Objects possess collections, or families, of events (or actions) that they can perform. The Helios platform determines which event or series of events should be invoked in order to achieve an object's Goal. These events are not static, but can be extended and even abstracted into a more general purpose state through Helios' proprietary AI approach, resulting in an object being able to adapt to changes in its environment.


Developers can implement using standard languages (such as C++ or any of the .NET Languages), as well as, Helios' proprietary AI Language. The Helios AI Language takes inspiration from first order predicate calculus languages is empowered with the parallel processing power of the Helios Platform and native advanced AI functionality. Developers can freely mix and match languages within the platform as needed.


Code developed in the Helios AI Language has the additional benefit of being able to be modified by the Helios AI Manager to dynamically adapt to new discoveries. These modifications can result in adapting to new knowledge, expanding or abstracting code into a more generalized form, as well as allowing for the transference of knowledge.


The Helios platform provides SDKs for all the major OS environments, as well as, a web services layer allowing for connectivity to Helios for virtually any environment. Applications can call on Helios as needed, or establish a constant socket/websocket connection and receive data in real-time. With the Helios Client SDK you can construct dashboards, charts, and reports that constantly update in real-time as data in the simulation changes, as well as tap into the prediction power of Helios to show real-time forecasting and trending.


The Worlds First 100% GPU Platform - Shattering Speed Records

Free from the constraints of having to support a Legacy platform or architecture, we have been able to design the Helios Platform from the ground up to take advantage of today's modern hardware architectures - specifically the massive parallel processing power of Graphical Processor Units (GPUs) found in NVidia's latest super computing Tesla cards.

Starting at the heart of the Helios platform is the ability to manipulate vast amounts of data. And to that end, the Helios Data Performance Engine encapsulates many of the necessary data manipulation tasks that Helios leverages to effectively run massive simulations, as well as, its advanced Artificial Intelligence and Wisdom systems.

The engineers at Power Beacon have developed revolutionary new approaches to handle the demand of a constantly simulated environment at massive scales - from high performance querying, to building on-the-fly indexes and data sorting, to exporting data to third parties or persistent storage, and the importing of data into the platform, the Helios Data Performance Engine can handle it with ease.

All of the metrics shown here illustrate the tremendous percent increases the Helios platform can achieve over today's standard environments. However, keep in mind that as impressive as this is, it pales in comparison to the true performance of Helios when it is running on its default Super Computing Node - as defined below.

These impressive numbers shown here are using just one GPU card running at 10 Teraflops. A standard Helios compute node is equipped with 20 GPUs each with 50% more general computing power than the one used here, and a staggering 2.4 Petaflops of additional AI specific computational horsepower!
