Below find the various developers and contributors to EllaZ Systems. Given the size and complexity of EllaZ Systems, not every contributor is listed on this page, but these are among the most significant and/or interesting.

The EllaZ Systems team consists of scientists, engineers, businessmen, and artists.  We call EllaZ Systems "Artful Intelligence" because of this.  We are always searching, building, learning, and creating as we complete each system, and advance each new idea.  We believe that intelligence can be built one intelligent behavior at a time.
