Talent Swarm LLC
Jim Novack is an electrical engineer (UCLA 1982) and for more than 15 years has been CEO of Dynatec, an engineering company specializing in procuring high-level technical personnel for industrial, petrochemical and energy projects (both conventional and nuclear), with over 200 professionals assigned to client projects internationally.
Jim’s global clients wrestle with providing expertise on time and with shrinking budgets to their facilities around the globe, and his company has developed a cloud-based platform for real-time collaboration called Talent Swarm, which allows workers to do real work within a virtual reality world, similar to a video game, incorporating images and information from the actual job site.
The entire project or airframe, from initial design through construction and assembly to operation and maintenance, is stored securely using block chain for the entire lifecycle, including biometric personnel data and IoT data feeds. The areas of application are engineering, construction, aerospace and the military.
As an initial step towards this vision, his current focus is on developing simple telepresence devices to begin introducing real-time collaboration in complex maintenance environments.
