Founded in 1988, Stottler Henke Associates, Inc. creates and applies artificial intelligence (AI) and other advanced software technologies to solve problems that defy solution using traditional approaches. At Stottler Henke, we take AI to be the mimicking of human thought processes to solve useful problems. We have spent decades studying human reasoning, intelligence, tactical decision-making, and deliberative planning and scheduling and how these thought processes can be encoded within software. Our software development process starts with looking at how human experts solve the problem when given plenty of time and resources. Then, we develop algorithms and software which automate these cognitive processes in real-time.
Stottler Henke develops intelligent software solutions for planning and scheduling, task and decision support, knowledge management and discovery, education and training, and autonomous systems. We combine broad artificial intelligence expertise and technologies with skills in expert knowledge elicitation, requirements analysis, software and database design and implementation, data analysis and visualization, and user interface design to deliver innovative yet practical software solutions. Our technology consulting, feasibility studies, and rapid prototypes help companies identify and validate promising applications and approaches. Our software development, implementation, and technology transfer services ensure the successful deployment of effective, practical, long-term solutions.
In 2012 at a White House ceremony, Stottler Henke was awarded the prestigious Tibbetts award, which honors small businesses for outstanding technical achievements and innovativeness. US Government agencies have designated ten Stottler Henke systems as Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) success stories. Four Stottler Henke systems have been included in Spinoff, NASA's showcase of successful spinoff technologies. Stottler Henke was the subject of a NASA Hallmarks of Success video profile for its work developing and later commercializing advanced scheduling and training software systems. Stottler Henke received a “Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning” award for innovative technology. Stottler Henke was named one of the "Top 100" companies making a significant impact on the military training industry by Military Training International magazine for 2016 and eleven previous years, Stottler Henke has received a Blue Ribbon from Military Training Technology magazine, recognizing it as a company that leads the industry in innovation. Stottler Henke is headquartered in San Mateo, CA and operates software development offices in Seattle, WA and Boston, MA.
