An Insider's view of Perceptive Automata

What are some social events your company does?

We host different events that are thought up of by different team members. We've gone to throw Axes at Urban Axes and we are taking a trip out to Cape Cod later this summer. Board game nights and Mario kart competitions are also always easy to come by!

Evaluating results requires rigorous data science.
