The Friedland Group, Inc. specializes in advanced, interdisciplinary research and research program management focused on machine intelligence. We work with our clients in government and private industry to identify and tackle difficult, long-term "DARPA-hard" problems in close collaboration with the academic and research community. This work focuses primarily on early stage and intermediate stage engagements.

Our early stage feasibility methodology leverages
Heilmeier's Catechism, providing a cost effective way to explore new research ideas, while identifying the relevant research community, thrusts, programmatic goals and milestones, and evaluation methodologies.

Our intermediate stage methodology produces quantitative results by developing demonstration technologies, involves adapting spiral and extreme development techniques used in commercial software applications to research needs.
