I helped invent novel techniques for providing government accreditation to online learning content by API at Woolf University. I am named on the pending patent for Airlock. Airlock combines an API with novel technologies for measuring student learning to create a complete picture of each student's learning experience. Woolf's core accreditation engine matches these cryptographically verified experiences with regulated accreditation requirements to determine whether students can be issued credits. It allows organizations to connect to Woolf by API to have their learning content benchmarked for accreditation value and matched to an accreditation license.

It is being used in coffee shops to recognize repeat customers and prep their orders. It uses real-time media streaming and scalable facial recognition systems; the entire toolkit was built to work on a mobile device and runs in a web browser. This project involves new face reconstruction techniques in real time for poor video conditions and new multi-regional real-time video streaming technology. Upon face recognition, it triggers the microphone and normalizes low-quality audio to perform advanced sentiment analysis. It matches people in a room to their profiles in a database and allows baristas to prep their order upon walking into the cafe – but there are many potential applications. Customers opt-in, and the restaurants have reduced their queueing time by as much as 50%.
