PALO ALTO, CA–(Marketwired – Sep 26, 2013) – Today, Declara announces its intelligent social learning platform that combines collaboration, intuitive search, and analytics to help organizations work smarter and faster. Declara is also revealing it has received a substantial amount of funding from Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and first investor in both Facebook and Palantir Technologies; Founders Fund, an early backer of companies like SpaceX and Yammer; and Data Collective, a high profile, Big Data-focused Silicon Valley venture capital fund.
Declara connects tens of millions of people simultaneously to massive amounts of content and enables them to search, study, interact, and measure progress, all collaboratively. Underlying Declara’s ease of use and massive scale is a unique combination of multiple forms of sophisticated machine learning and a breakthrough cognitive model of how people acquire new skills. This core intelligence system observes how Declara users learn and with whom they learn most effectively. For each user, Declara learns quickly how to become the analog of an effective and involved human mentor: intuitively delivering useful content the users may not have found on their own, seamlessly connecting them to other users who can help improve outcomes, and making search and discovery swift and painless.
Declara’s platform delivers features like social collaboration, frictionless semantic search, rapid content creation, intelligent chat, live mentoring, self and peer assessment, and progress tracking, all woven together by Declara’s core intelligence system. Additionally, each of Declara’s features can be transparently combined and integrated with other enterprise software, such as existing systems for security and authorization, content management, email, and other communications media.
