Our work is grounded in the following beliefs about the
future of computing rather than in any particular piece of brittle technology:
Psyex develops custom software solutions for small businesses, large corporations, and academic environments, developing both innovative mainstream software as well as advanced artificial intelligence solutions. Projects have ranged from quick connectivity and scripting solutions to full-scale production work-flow environments and foundational artificial intelligence-requiring research efforts. Psyex is based in the SF bay area, where it is run by Russ McBride and where he and many of the Psyex team are involved as Ph.D. students and postdocs at the University of California at Berkeley. The team prefers Mac and Unix development environments and has done a variety of database work (Oracle, PostgreSQL, Filemaker), web application work (WebObjects, ACS, Frontier), fuzzy logic systems, and programmed in a large variety of programming and scripting languages.
Psyex provides both research consulting on the one hand, and custom software
development on the other. The founder, Russ McBride, has been a hired
gun research analyst for everything from multi-tier application server
solutions, to logical term analysis for law firms, to the analysis of
the Union Carbide Bhopal disaster. He also worked for the Lexington Institute
think tank doing research work in artificial intelligence. Once the questions
to be answered are set, a specialized research team is assembled, which
may, for example, include computer scientists, economists, engineers,
and cognitive scientists.
