Synthetic Intelligence: An Alternative Approach to AI

New Sapience anticipates the launch of what we believe is an entirely new paradigm of artificial intelligence. More aptly referred to as Synthetic Intelligence, our sapiens are unique thinking machine prototypes with the acumen to comprehend and communicate through human language instead of merely mimicking comprehension like much of AI known today. New Sapience is pre-revenue and currently in the prototype phase.

Transformative Market Potential

  • Multiple $100M+ and $1B+ Markets

    Humankind’s greatest talent, the one that defines us more than any other, is our ability to acquire and apply knowledge. Combining this ability with the speed, repeatability, connectivity, and perfect memories of computers would create the ultimate machine, one that could potentially solve even the world’s most intractable problems and create unlimited productivity. Our potential consumer market is equivalent to the number of Internet users. Nearly all commercial markets are candidates for penetration and disruption by our technology.

Today's AI Offers Only Imitation Intelligence

Big Tech is investing billions of dollars in machine learning and touting Large Language Models (LLMs) as a great leap forward in AI and even Artificial General Intelligence. But only a shallow dive is required to realize that the “intelligence” of these chatbots is an illusion.

Training a neural network to find patterns in huge datasets indeed solves a useful class of problems but moves not even a single step toward endowing machines with an internal model of reality that’s needed to comprehend the meaning of words and communicate ideas. Knowledge and intelligence are two sides of the same coin, each meaningless without the other.

LLMs like ChatGPT create problems so serious that government regulation is being called for. Not because the technology is too intelligent for humans to control, as Big Tech would have us believe, but because the problems are a result of LLMs having no intelligence at all. Big Tech hype is writing checks their tech can’t cash. New Sapience can.

Synthetic Intelligence

Real Intelligence from Real Knowledge

Cognitive Chemistry

We discovered that knowledge, like the physical world, has a hidden structure. Complex concepts are composed of building block ideas that, like material atoms, can be combined only in certain ways. We identified and classified these “cognitive atoms.”

Digital DNA

We assembled the cognitive atoms into a digital specification – a “cognitive core” – that controls the assembly of incoming information into highly compact model structures. This is cognitive learning (like humans do), not neural training (like generative AI).

A World Model

We built a model of the commonsense world of sufficient to decode and encode natural language and serve as the foundation for all expert, scientific, and academic knowledge.

Our Products

Ever-Evolving Lifetime Companions

From your first conversation with a sapiens you’ll recognize that it’s no chatbot spewing scripted or algorithm-generated responses. Your sapiens is communicating, really listening to you, tracking the changing topic of the conversation, assessing your intent, and even looking for insight into your mental and emotional states.

Sapiens are not cloud-based; they run safely and securely on your own computers and smart phones. Loyal gatekeeper of your privacy and data, your sapiens will screen you from unwanted interruptions and eventually become your one common interface to all technology.

How We Make Money

Sapiens Subscriptions

Our technology has applications for nearly every industry and market where human intelligence, judgment and knowledge are key. We will develop product lines of sapiens for individuals and organizations and a wide array of plug-in modules that can be downloaded from our online store. Pricing to individuals for the basic sapiens will be comparable to a music service or magazine subscription, attainable by most people who use a mobile device. Pricing to organizations will vary by market vertical.

Platforms and Licensing

We plan to offer licensing for the development of commercial-branded sapiens and embedded applications. We believe our business will become highly profitable. Our development costs are minuscule compared to current AI and automation technologies. Since sapiens are deployed on customer owned hardware, we are spared the major expense of data centers.


Use of Funds

New Sapience is a knowledge company dedicated to bringing sapiens with expert and professional knowledge to every commercial market vertical. These are the final steps needed to deploy our technology in our first consumer product, the Companion Sapiens. But they are the first steps of a journey that could transform our world.

Invest Alongside Rocket Scientists

We are consummate technologists, serial entrepreneurs, and tech investors. Two of us are literally rocket scientists, including a veteran pilot-astronaut who served as NASA Deputy Administrator. Another is a physicist whose name appears on over 100 patents. Over our extensive careers we have pioneered unprecedented new technologies, developed them into products, taken those products to market, and built businesses that went to IPO or were acquired by public corporations. The team has 3 exits totaling $350 million.

Bryant Cruse, Founder & CEO
Bryant graduated from St. John’s College, known for its unique “Great Books” program, providing him with fertile ground for a life-long exploration of how humans know what they know (epistemology). After graduation, he served on active duty as a Naval Aviator, and then went on to earn a graduate degree in Space Systems Engineering from Johns Hopkins.

At NASA he developed the first application of AI technology for spacecraft operations for the Hubble Telescope and was funded by NASA for a residency in AI (MS equivalent) at the Lockheed AI center. He then went on to found two successful high-tech software automation companies which were acquired by public corporations. New Sapience, founded in 2014, is his third technology company.

Education: BA, St. Johns College. MS, Johns Hopkins University. MS equivalent, Lockheed Artificial
Intelligence Center.
Karsten Huneycutt, Chief Software Architect
Karsten is a co-author of the company’s core patent. He is the designer and programmer for the MIKOS AI processing engine and creator of the MICA language which it interprets.

Prior to beginning full-time employment with New Sapience, he worked in the IT departments at Duke and the University of North Carolina where he designed and implemented the next generation of provisioning and de- provisioning, a campus wide single sign-on identity management system, and many other aspects of the university IT infrastructure.

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Russian, Duke University, May 2001
William Robert Bandy, Board Member, Chief Intellectual Property Officer
Bill worked at DARPA in the mid-80’s, a time when advances in computing gave impetus to a new branch of computer science: Artificial Intelligence. He became hooked on the promise of AI, but it wasn’t until he met Bryant Cruse, the founder of New Sapience and perhaps the first “computational epistemologist,” did he think that promise could be realized. Bill, a New Sapience investor and advisor, understood right away that Bryant’s breakthrough cognitive core model has the capacity to dramatically change the AI landscape forever.
Thomas Loveland, Board Member, Chief Administrative Officer
Tom leads a data and software consultancy that helps regional and national brands solve complex business technology challenges and free human capital to deliver more value to their organizations and the world.

Education: University of Washington Honors College, St. John’s College (Annapolis), University of Chicago
William F. Readdy, Board Member, Chief Partnerships Officer
Bill is a veteran pilot astronaut with three space flights. He has logged over 672 hours in space. He served NASA in many roles including NASA Director of Operations, Star City, Russia; Stafford Task Force; and the first manager of Space Shuttle Program Development charged with upgrading the Space Shuttle. Readdy served as Associate Administrator, NASA HQ Office of Space Flight that had oversight for the Marshall, Kennedy, Stennis and Johnson Space Centers as well as programmatic oversight for International Space Station, Space Shuttle, Space Communications and Space Launch Vehicles.

What’s your share price?


What is the minimum investment size?

The minimum investment size for this current round is $1,000.

What is the current valuation of the company?

Approximately $98,000,000.

Why should I invest?

We believe we are the first and only organization to have found a practical, scalable way to endow computers with both common and expert knowledge of reality. New Sapience is perfecting patented technology that finally delivers long-awaited thinking machines. Our technology can do what no other software can – acquire and apply knowledge – because it is the only software that understands what the words actually mean. Combining this ability with the speed, repeatability, connectivity, and perfect memories of computers would produce the ultimate machine, one that could potentially solve even the world’s most intractable problems and create unlimited productivity.

How will New Sapience make money?

Our technology has applications for nearly every industry and market where human intelligence, judgment and knowledge are key. We will develop product lines of sapiens for individuals and organizations on a subscription basis and a wide array of plug-in modules that can be downloaded from our online store for a fee. We also plan to offer platform licensing for people and organizations to develop their own commercial-branded sapiens and embedded applications.

How do I know people will buy this solution?

Millions of subscribers and thousands of major organizations already are paying for current LLM AI tools that don’t actually understand what the words mean, that generate incorrect but authoritative sounding answers, that propagate bias, and that pose significant privacy and security threats. Our technology comes with none of these flaws. Further, in addition to understanding the general world, our technology also learns, understands and remembers the details about its principal’s world, becoming a powerful personal or team assistant.

Are there more opportunities ahead?

The reasons why only New Sapience can bring Synthetic Intelligence into the world requires a radical departure from how AI has been understood and approached since its inception as a field.

One indispensable breakthrough was the invention/discovery of practical, scalable techniques by which human knowledge could be curated and synthesized into a digital information structure. This first occurred in the context of practical applications to analyze engineering telemetry of spacecraft and launch vehicles.

Equally indispensable breakthroughs were required in the almost forgotten philosophies of Epistemology and Ontology. A rocket scientist and a philosopher, an unlikely combination, but the founder of New Sapience happens to truly be both.

Why didn't a bigger company do this already?

First, it is widely recognized that Big Tech excels at capitalizing on new technology. But instead of developing it internally, Big Tech generally obtains breakthrough technology by buying innovative small companies.

Second, as in prior seasons of peak AI, nearly all effort and attention are committed to the technology of the moment, which today is generative AI. Enormous resources (talent, money, hardware, energy, attention) are being directed toward leveraging and improving generative AI, with alternative research and approaches to AI ignored or even ridiculed in the stampede.

Third, the fundamental breakthroughs required to come up with our innovation lie far outside computer science – the real of Big Tech – and require a radical departure from how AI has been understood and approached since its inception as a field at the 1956 Dartmouth Summer Research Project on Artificial Intelligence.

Our breakthroughs were developed over the course of a career spent seeking methods to curate and synthesize human knowledge into a digital information structure to produce revolutionary tools for practical applications like automating the operation of complex spacecraft and launch vehicles, literally rocket science.

Equally indispensable were breakthroughs in disciplines that could hardly be further from rocket science, the almost forgotten philosophies of Epistemology and Ontology. A rocket scientist and a philosopher. An unlikely combination, but our founder happens to be both.

How do you plan to use the proceeds from this funding round?

Proceeds from this and concurrent fundraising campaigns will be directed largely toward continued research and product development, with a smaller portion directed toward advertising and operations. Currently our technical efforts are focused on reaching what we call the “Tipping Point” milestone: we are targeting a level of general conversational language comprehension and articulation that will readily demonstrate that our technology works, thus reducing the need for us to justify and explain our contrarian approach.

What perks do I get for investing?

Investors who are current stockholders of Company common stock as of the day prior to the commencement of this offering will receive 30% bonus shares at no cost. Investors who invest prior to established target dates and more than established target amounts will receive bonus shares at no cost according to the tables displayed above. Investors who invest $10,000 or more will be entitled to a free lifetime subscription of a Companion Sapiens.

How do I get a return on my investment?

You should not invest any funds in this offering unless you can afford to lose your entire investment. Investing in startups is risky and there is no guarantee you will get your money back at all, let alone a return on your investment. However, company exits can provide opportunities for you to convert your shares into cash or a more liquid asset. Exits include going public, getting acquired, tender offers, and the company buying back shares. If the value of our company grows, then you have a higher potential of making a profit on your investment during one or more of these exits.

How many investors do you have already?

New Sapience currently has over 1,000 investors.

When will I receive my shares?

This offering involves “rolling closings.” Once we meet our target minimum amount for this offering, we may instruct the escrow agent to disburse offering funds to us. At that point, investors whose subscription agreements have been accepted will become our investors and their shares will be awarded. We anticipate triggering such closings and fund disbursements once per month during the course of this campaign.

Are there higher fees if you invest via credit card vs. ACH?

No, costs are the same, regardless of how you invest.

Will you be paying out dividends to investors?
