Context-Aware Location Assessment

Thoughtfish develops our technologies with support from the European Union and the European Regional Development Fund.

Our products focus on mobile devices and the ways people use them. Smartphones are incredibly intimate objects: we carry them in our bags, place them next to our pillows at night, and even bring them to the bathroom with us.

Our technology supports this close relationship by being able to pinpoint a user’s context. Our apps know when a user is sitting in a park in the rain or walking through snow-covered streets, perhaps in search of a warm drink at a cafe. This knowledge is not just limited to time, place and weather: we can aggregate additional data sources and adapt an app’s response to the context, based on everything from tides and moon phases to topography and vegetation. Wherever the desired data type exists, we can process it into a new experience.

We use this technology in our game Fightlings, while our clients use it for everything from tourism and dining to nightlife and job searches.

Our next project seeks to advance the COALA technology by bringing it to indoor spaces.

The Thoughtfish (piscis sapiens sapiens) is characterized by a superb adaptability to different habitats. It is agile, intelligent, and feels at home in all kinds of datastreams. The Thoughtfish is able to fill a new ecological niche through flexibility and a wealth of ideas, and is able to swim just as effectively against the current as with it.
