IEI's Business Model

Imagination Engines, Inc. (IEI) considers itself an incubator/accelerator for new applications of its foundational patents in creative artificial intelligence, most notably Creativity Machines, and now, DABUS systems. Behind the scenes, the company supports itself with government contracting, patent licensing, and the sale of various neural network tools based upon its unique brand of artificial neural nets, STANNOs.

In addition, the company utilizes its patents to build extensive artificial neural systems that arguably emulate all aspects of human cognition, consciousness, and sentience. As the company exercises these systems, new product/service ideas manifest themselves, that then reenter IEI’s principal business practice.
