the link partners with Kognition to bring security and safety advancement to its smart building in Nocatee

Innovators Raghu Misra and Matias Klein design an artificial intelligence (AI) powered, security system to support the “smart” commercial property

Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. – June 9, 2021 – Founder and innovator Raghu Misra, announced the link team is working with renowned technology leader Matias Klein and his company Kognition, a developer of an enterprise artificial intelligence (AI) software platform with automated security, safety and compliance procedures. Raghu and Matias have worked together to design an environment for the link members which tracks and automates a lot of health and safety measures in the 22,500-square-foot commercial building at 425 Town Plaza Avenue, Ponte Vedra, Florida.

Kognition’s patented AI processes data from cameras, video analytics, sensors, and connected IoT devices in real-time to detect human activity, threats, irregularities, and other health and security policy violations. A COVID-19 health and safety suite of services will offer comprehensive health security tools with methods such as touchless access controls and contact tracing software based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to help protect staff, members, vendors, and visitors.

“We are pleased to have Matias and his team create a safer, smarter, and more secure campus. the link’s overarching and innovative connectivity in northeast Florida combined with Kognition’s state-of-the-art solutions will unlock significant value for us as property owners and operators,” said Misra. “the link will be the first facility in the area designed at the same level as many of the world’s largest companies with building intelligence and sustainability.”

Kognition is a leader in smart spaces AI, a cutting-edge branch of computer science focused on real-time interoperability of data streams and deep learning from diverse vendors and sources that are networked together and actuated in the real world, also known as the Internet of Things (IoT).

The fusion of AI and IoT creates higher-level intelligence and automation through an interdisciplinary approach, thereby performing tasks that historically would require human intelligence.

“Advancements in deep learning and smart spaces AI are creating a paradigm shift in virtually every facet of the built environment,” said Klein. “We are pleased to provide the link with an intelligent enterprise software infrastructure that promotes safety, security, and health for its members, visitors and employees… especially during the current pandemic environment, and beyond.”

Misra also plans to collaborate with Kognition to train a diverse group of young people in the emerging field of innovative sciences and leadership studies with a focus on mindsets and behaviors essential to improvement and practice with video tagging, machine learning, economic, environmental, social and cultural impacts, and more.

According to Misra, the Nocatee community, which is rated as the #1 place to live in Florida, merits infrastructure like the link. “As businesses adjust, prepare and continue to operate safely, building owners and operators are looking for opportunities to incorporate secure technology solutions that adhere to changing health safety measures. We are dedicated to proactively improving the security for all who are in the internal and external proximity of our building,” he said. “The outpouring of support, interest, and collaboration from potential technologists, partners, members and users of the space is very encouraging. We affirm the need for this type of model project and innovators like Matias and Kognition to position the one-of-a-kind venue for our members.” For more information, visit
