[noun] Synnada (Greek: τὰ Σύνναδα) was an ancient town of Phrygia Salutaris in Asia Minor.
We named the company Synnada as we love ancient Anatolian civilizations and are fascinated by epic stories related to Anatolia such as Alexander cutting the Gordian Knot.
Gordian Knot is often used as a metaphor for an impossible or very hard-to-solve problem solved easily by finding an approach to the problem that renders the perceived constraints of the problem moot.
This is very similar to Kobayashi Maru challenge from Star Trek in which the subject can solve the problem only by breaking the rules of the game.
This is the fundamental founding idea of Synnada. We believe that traditional ML workflows are not working on streaming data (trying to make them work well is akin to untying an impossibly tangled knot) and we are solving the problem by changing the core ML approach to unsupervised/semi-supervised learning (thus we cut the knot).
