Our vision

Many people in the world, for specific reasons, are cognitively different from the rest of the population.

These individuals are classified as Atypicals and sub categorised into several classes (Aspergers, Autistics, High potential (High IQ) etc…)

The cognitive structure of this population gives its members out-of-ordinary abilities in specific domains and weaknesses in others compared to members of the main population. These abilities usually include a high competency for science, technology, and the digital world (Mathematics, Sciences, Computer Science).

Atypicals are one of the best kept secrets in the technology sector. Famous Researchers and Scientifics that had and have a profound impact on all aspects of the development of humanity are rumored to be Atypicals. Nowadays this partiality for Science and Technology is evident in Computer Science. Peter Thiels, one of Paypal’s founders, mentioned that being an Asperger is an advantage in the Silicon Valley.

Unfortunately, the usual company organisation (pyramidal structure, type of people and team management, etc.) is not concussive to high performance from Atypicals. ASPertise has an intimate understanding of the Atypical population, the management and development of high value to the benefit of it clients.

ASPertise is a Technology Service company that focuses on solutions to bring the high technology competence of the Atypical population (Aspergers, Autistics, High IQ) to serve the need of its clients.


ASPertise is a Technology Service company, born from the work of a team of international specialists, specialized in Startups, Neuroscience and the Atypical population.
ASPertise is one of very few companies in the world able to manage and foster the extraordinary high technology competence of cognitively different people, i.e. the atypical population (Aspergers, Autistics, High IQ) for the benefit of its clients. ASPertise is also uniquely managed by atypicals.

The expert team was created to bring a tremendous experience and understanding of the industrial world and its needs as well as a unique insight into the atypical world. We are grateful and lucky to have been able to attract some of the best experts in their domain.
These experts bring an extraordinay valuable vision and an expertise to ASPertise.

Cyber Security

The ASPertise Cybersecurity Team is composed of technology savvy professionals that are experienced in all aspects of Corporate Cybersecurity. The difficulty of the cybersecurity field is the constant evolution of the technology and the relative secrecy in the field. This requires our team to constantly update its expertise and stay close to the recent developments through its implication in the community.

We provide services in Physical and Wireless Network and Security Assessments, Cyber Social Engineering, Domain Password Audits, Architecture Development, Vulnerability Assessments and Penetration Testing, Policy Assessments and firewall rule review.

Some of the examples of work done by our Cybersecurity team are :

• Designed and implemented a proof of concept machine learning based network traffic monitoring tool to detect potential malicious activity

• Penetration tests for network and building: social engineering and planned computer attack
• Agent development and ethical hacking
• Installation, maintenance and configuration of windows servers for minimization of intrusion risks
• Development of tools for the impact reduction of zero days exploits

Big Data

Today’s companies are dealing with unstructured and unrelated data emerging from different channels thanks to the proliferation of data sources and, as a result are not able to fully exploit its potential. The challenge for the understanding of this large amount of data is of course the development of relevant financial and statistical models and also IT infrastructures fast enough and scalable enough to acquire, manage and treat the information.

ASPertise’s Big Data team is knowledgeable in the latest tools and technologies useful to develop systems and models to extract significance from our clients’ data. Some of our team members have, in addition to their computer expertise, a specific knowledge and education in statistics and mathematical tools very useful to develop relevant data models. Our team is also experienced and knowledgeable in the development of software solutions based on real time, scalable solution architectures. They have acquired and developed knowledge in NoSQL database (like MongoDB) and in tools such as Hbase, Hive, and Hadoop.

Some of the examples of development work done by our team are :

• High throughput data treatment for financial institutions
• High availability systems development for financial market data
• Maintenance of a high throughput / high visibility system in java
• Development of machine learning based system for data mining
• Prototyping of models and algorithms in Matlab
• Server based data analysis for clustering classification and regression
• Creation and architecture of high performance servers
• Development of real time systems for the filtering of GPS data

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence taps into expertise as diverse as speech recognition, imaging and natural language processing. These technologies and expertise benefit from discoveries in algorithmic, processing power and analytical methods like machine learning and deep learning.

The recent developments in Artificial intelligence allow the firms to hope for augmenting their capacities of optimisation, of speed and to develop long-term competitive advantages. Unfortunately the strong complexity linked to these new technologies asks for the assistance of specialised experts difficult to find.

Our consultants have expertise on the following subjects:

• Autonomous cars
• Robotics
• Picture treatment
• Speech Recognition
• Adaptive complex systems
• etc.
