Faster data analysis with greater understanding™

Kornucopia® ML™               
for use with MATLAB®

Kornucopia® ML™ is a unique suite of tools for use with MATLAB®. Users in physical testing, simulation, and research environments generate high volumes of messy/noisy, meta-info rich data. Kornucopia ML's tools are designed to improve speed, precision and effectiveness of analyzing real-world data throughout your organization.

“Data” are numbers PLUS units and other key descriptive information. The issue for the technical community is this; though computational tools have improved efficiency in the calculation of numbers, the level of manual effort required to associate units and other essential information to the numbers remains high. Kornucopia® ML™ is changing this in a unique and exciting way. Kornucopia's features free you from the time intensive, error prone workload of repetitively attaching and detaching key information to numbers. Now, a tool is available that enables calculation with "data" in its complete form!

For data analysis, Kornucopia® ML™ addresses the daunting task of choice and application of which powerful tools are needed to process complicated data sets. Kornucopia® ML™ contains a long overdue resource in this area with a suite of over 120 powerful data and work-flow enhancing functions. Expertise captured from decades of real world experience is delivered through a teaching help system with relevant concepts and useable examples. This enables highly effective, confident production of results faster with greater understanding. From highly automated plotting to DSP processing tools and more, Kornucopia® ML™ is truly a horn of plenty.

Overview of Kornucopia's General Features
