A personal project
Balusian is above all a personal project that appears due to our interest in the way technology spans and mediates in many aspects of our lives, its impacts and the way they are changed. It’s a vision that goes beyond IT and covers other disciplines and social sciences.
Inteligencia Artificial and IOT devices are spanning many aspects of our lives and are becoming o mainstream services. They provide new and amazing improvements completely unknown until now.
At the same time, they are introducing new vulnerabilities and social concerns, due to our direct dependency with them. If a malware, cyberattack or information breach hit critical services equipped with IOT and AI (in smart cities, smart homes, intelligent health systems), concequences will be much deeper than if they hit our current smartphone or laptop.
We help our clients optimize, protect their technology, and make it more trustworthy, with the objective of improving their business.
This vision is extensible to the technology and new services that impact our lives and bodies, with cybersecurity, privacy and ethical consequence: we want to make it more responsible and trustworthy, so the fitting is as optimized as possible.
