Francisco Webber

Cortical.io, Austria

Francisco Webber is the CEO and founder of Cortical.io, a company that develops natural language processing solutions for big text data. Francisco’s medical background in genetics combined with his more than two decades of experience in information technology inspired him to create semantic folding, a ground-breaking technology based on the latest findings on the way the human neocortex processes information. Prior to Cortical.io, Francisco founded Matrixware Information Services, a company that developed the first standardized database of patents. Francisco also initiated the Information Retrieval Facility, a non-profit research institute, with the goal to bridge the gap between science and industry in the information retrieval domain.
