Optimizing Human Judgment
Integrating proven analytic techniques with big data infrastructures and analytics to improve and scale decision-making
Ox helps people make high-quality judgments, faster, by powering structured analytic techniques with AI
Decision-making is a complex process that usually takes place inside someone’s head. It’s often unclear, especially after the fact, how decisions get made. This makes it hard to scale good decision-making and impossible to leverage technology to assist in the decision-making process. The failure to leverage data on how decisions get made compromises future decisions. Ox is here to change that.
Users and teams create frameworks for different types of repetitive decision-making and analytical processes.
Users evaluate the performance of their decisions, refining and improving their frameworks based on data.
Ox identifies repetitive processes that can be automated to assist and augment human capabilities.
Analytical tasks are allocated more effectively, increasing efficiency while improving decision-making performance.
I believe Ox Intel’s technology represents a true game changer in intelligence, recognising the opportunity costs in failing to collect essential data that will optimise human judgments. Not only does Ox have the potential to solve existing problems, it will reinforce analytical rigour, streamline the evaluation of intelligence, and inform future priorities.

It doesn’t matter how good of an analyst I am if I can’t show decision-makers how I arrived at my conclusions. Ox makes this process simple, visual, and repeatable, and provides a consistent and transparent mechanism for quantifying analytical confidence. Additionally, Ox helps make sure people don’t bother me while I’m on vacation, incorporating my expertise in areas like geopolitical analysis into my team’s shared knowledge base.

- National Security Commission on AI Emphasizes Need for Human-Machine TeamingIn 2018, the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI)—composed of prominent technologists and innovators—was charged with making recommendations that would “advance the development of artificial intelligence [AI], machine learning, and associated technologies to comprehensively address the national security and defense needs of the United States.” The NSCAI recently presented their recommendations for a strategy … Read More
- Behind The NameIn 1907, Francis Galton conducted an experiment where he had attendees at a country fair compete to guess the weight of an ox. Galton found that the average of everyone’s guesses — approximately 800 of them — was closest to the ox’s actual weight, and closer than any individual guess, including those from people with more familiarity … Read More
- Our JourneyIn an evolving security landscape, government agencies need to be creative and resourceful in developing solutions to complex problems, which requires looking beyond the defense space. By working with universities, governments can tap into innovative approaches offered by students, who can provide outside-the-box solutions to existing problems. This is our story of how we went … Read More
