Singularium Technologies was founded in 2013 and was born again in 2021. We did a “hard pivot” as per the start-up parlance. The year 2021 was the peak of the COVID pandemic. Many fundamental beliefs were challenged both in domestic & corporate spheres. Two trends caught our attention in this period:
1. Wider acceptance of remote gig-working
2. Coming of age of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in form of GPT3 launch in Jun 2020 (not chatGPT)
These trends fundamentally challenge the ways-of-working in the corporate sphere. AI holds tremendous potential to down-skill a job. For example, look at what chatGPT is doing to coding. While AI holds immense potential, it has an Achilles heel. It can make very costly errors at times without warning. This limitation can be overcome by getting humans to review and correct the AI outputs. This practice is widely referred to as human-in-loop approach.
Having built AI assets in our earlier avatar, we had a sound understanding of AI and its limitations. We devised a novel approach wherein AI takes the first shot at solving a problem. The outputs of AI are then reviewed by a remote gig-worker. The remote gig-worker here is the human-in-loop. With this approach we are able to solve very tough problems and rapidly deliver results for our clients.

The Earlier Avatar
Between 2013 – 2021 were a retail technology company. We were focused on organizing the traditional trade (Kirana) channel in India. The founding team had another Co-Founder in this period – Parikshit Iyengar. We offered multiple applications to small & medium scale grocers: Soopershop.in hyperlocal e-commerce platform (2013 – 15), SoopershopAdmin App & Store tiger CRM & MIS tools for supermarkets (2015 – 2018) and PAISE mobile billing system for Kirana (2018 – 2020). The journey had several highs & lows and a lot of learning.
