Well. Where should we begin to present the spirit and the people from YellowOrange?

In 1990, we began studying psychology at the university in Paris, France. We were very interested in computer systems, programming languages and software’s. In 1994 was the revelation year as we started learning Cognitive Sciences. During this year, with my girlfriend (she is now my wife and we have 3 sweet children) we founded a company (called Beamak for Béatrice and Mark) promoting free software. We have developed maybe 20 different applications within 2 years of existence. Every software we made was distributed as a freeware through the press. We had an award in 1994 for the first ever made digital assistant which you could feed with any kind of information. It was just as simple as talking to a friend of yours to input the information. Then, you could ask something to the software and it provided you with an answer. This software was built in C and implemented an innovative search algorithm made with fuzzy logic stuff. We enjoyed a lot the success we had at that time with it and the rest of our creations.

Why were we successful? Maybe a part of the answer is that our software was free of charge. But it cannot be just that. Many other software’s were also free. For us, the main reason was that ours were done with one ground rule: let’s do something for the humans, let’s do something which is very simple to understand for someone between 7 and 77 years of age. Let’s do something that is easy to use. This was new and was our way forward to make something different, something intelligent.

And this is the foundation of YellowOrange and of our core values, do technology for people, delight our customers, Practice of environmentally sustainable IT, work as a team and always be honest and regarded as trusted advisers.

So we still work together and we do AI since 1994. This is not a new thing to us and we have today over 23 years of experience in this area. We both worked for the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) which is the largest governmental research organization in France and the largest fundamental science agency in Europe. One is specialized in human reasoning and the other one in problem solving. In addition to these subject matter experts, at YellowOrange we have a Center of Excellence in Bangalore doing software development and integration.

YellowOrange is also member of the following group:

  • Artificial Intelligence Professional: cognitive computing network
  • Cognitive Neuroscience Society: development of mind and brain research
  • Fuzzy Logic Researchers: theory and applications using fuzzy logic
  • European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology: non-profit organization for researchers
  • Neuron AI: professional network for Artificial Intelligence
  • Open AI: non-profit artificial intelligence research company
  • Biggerplate: home of Mind mapping

From those early days until today, our people worked for the biggest consulting and IT companies: Andersen Consulting, Accenture, Cap Gemini, Hewlett Packard Enterprise… managing over 200 projects for the biggest European companies such as Accenture, AG2R, Airbus, Andersen Consulting, Areva, ASML, Bouygues Télécom, Cap Gemini, Europcar, France Télécom, Generali, Global One, Groupama, Hewlett Packard, HP, KPNC, La Banque Postale, LG, MACIF, Maersk, Malakoff Médéric, Orange, Pole Emploi, Renault Nissan, SFR, Shell, Société Générale, TF1, Thales, Total, UCB and Vodafone.

At YellowOrange, we love what we do and we stick to our promises.
We would be glad to help you move your next project forward.

And now the YellowOrange management team…
