Introducing Paphus Solutions

Paphus Solutions Inc. is a Canadian corporation that specializes in intelligence automation products and services.

The first question people have when introducing Paphus Solutions is:

   What does Paphus mean?

The word "Paphus" comes from Greek mythology, from the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. Pygmalion was a great sculptor in ancient Greece, who crave the statue Galatea from stone. The statue was carved so perfectly that it came to life (perhaps with the help of the Goddess Aphrodite). Paphus was the son of Pygmalion and Galatea.

Similar myths have reemerged through the ages, Geppetto and Pinocchio, Victor and Frankenstein, and Tenma and Astro Boy. But, the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea is thought to be the first known myth of man giving intelligence to a machine. Paphus can also be spelled "Paphos" which is a city in Greece (in some myths founded by the son of Paphus).

The second question is:

   What is intelligence automation?

Intelligence automation is the growing industry of using computer software to automate intelligent behavior through learning algorithms and data analysis. Applications of intelligence automation include: customer service automation, technical support automation, expert systems, algorithmic securities trading, self driving vehicles, and automated drones.

Intelligence automation has already had huge impacts on many industries. In financial securities trading, automated trading agents are already accounting for as much a 70% of the trades on some stock exchanges. Algorithmic trading agents are used by big brokerage firms to manage mutual funds and large portfolios, as well as independent day traders to trade individual positions. In the automotive industry, self driving vehicles are already a reality, and already being made available to the general public through cars such as the new Marcadees S-Class. Experts systems are being used in the medical, accounting and law industries, to aid and in some cases replace human experts.

At Paphus Solutions we provide consulting, development services, and products in the field of intelligence automation. Intelligence automation projects are complex and unpredictable, if your organization is in development, or investigating an automation project, we can provide advice, development services and sub-contracting.
