Neuledge Search Engine

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB9gOw2Y7Hk&feature=youtu.be
This search engine has the ability to scan and search content on a website using a chatbot. I implemented this project using natural language processing (NLP) before the large language model (LLM) was invented. The project has a POC over a few websites in Hebrew and provides answers for context indexed by the bot.

Neuledge Engine

https://github.com/neuledge/engine-js
A powerful language that simplifies data management and enhances data integrity for databases. It enables users to define their data models and business logic in a precise and customizable way. The schema language supports customizable scalar types, providing type-safe data models and ensuring that users always get the data they expect.

Neuledge Chat

A chat workspace with custom prompts and thread sharing for teams and companies to use ChatGPT within their organization. It can be integrated with other sources, such as PDF files, and provide more context and details tailored to the user's needs.

PayClick

The direct debit system is just like GoCardless in the UK.

We managed to bring clients, use the system with genuine transactions, and process over $100,000 in just a few months. The banking industry trusted the system, and we connected directly with banks and transfer systems.

Computed-Types

https://github.com/neuledge/computed-types
Computed-Types, previously Funval, is a strongly typed validation library for TypeScript. Using function interfaces, Computed-Types knows how to transform and validate data and automatically generates accurate TypeScript interfaces at compile time.
