Machines Need Humans
Even in this AI age, machines need humans to provide context and nuanced understanding. Machines lack the capacity to comprehend and interpret intricate social, cultural, and emotional aspects that influence human decision-making. This means the best machines and algorithms are built to leverage and enhance human expertise, not to undermine them.
The Future is Local
Local institutions are at the forefront of enhancing the well-being of their citizens. Local entities are more intimately connected to the everyday experiences of Americans and are more adaptable to the needs of diverse and ever-evolving communities. Our dedication lies in collaborating with local organizations, enabling them to gain deeper understanding of the impact of their choices on individuals and facilitate long-term planning for transformative outcomes.
Data Privacy is Central
Data privacy is at the core of our culture. In this era of extensive digital surveillance, AlphaVu offers a refreshing alternative by respecting the privacy of every individual. We work every day to embrace privacy policies and procedures as a core mission, not as an afterthought.
Founder and CEO
Scott is driven to help those who build for the public good.
He started his career working for elected officials, both in campaigns and policy positions, where he learned the ins and outs of politics and public service. Over the years, he gained experience in the private sector leading initiatives on market research, RFID technology, and biometrics. As he developed a deep understanding of proper data collection and analysis, Scott saw the need for public servants to be equipped with more accurate input to make informed decisions on policies and investments that could improve their communities.
Scott began AlphaVu with a single aim: to uncover a true view of public opinion by understanding people on their own terms.
