Ontonix Signs Collaboration Agreement with US Army Institute of Surgical Research

Como, May 3-rd, 2010. Ontonix has signed a Co-operative Research And Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) based in Fort Sam Houston, Texas. This CRADA represents an important milestone in Ontonix´s endeavor to deploy complexity analysis technology in the healthcare space.

Ontonix develops COSMOS, a multi-channel real-time system which quantifies the stability of hospitalized patients. Based on streaming data, originating from sensors and other monitoring devices such as those in an Intensive Care Unit, the device measures the instantaneous degree of stability of a patient. The system also signals when the mentioned stability undergoes changes due to traumas, side-effects of treatment or any other dynamic mutations within the patient´s organism. The technology is unique in that it processes simultaneously all channels, analyzing all the cross-relationships, delivering a truly holistic view of the patient´s state. Most importantly, since the collected data is processed by the system according to a model-free technique, the measure of stability of the patient is not biased by any particular mathematical approach.

Jacek Marczyk

Visionary, scientist, businessman and writer with over 35 years of experience in QUANTITATIVE large-scale Uncertainty and Complexity Management in diverse fields (manufacturing, finance, economics).

Author of nine books on simulation, uncertainty and complexity management, rating.

Developed in mid 90s the theory of eigenvalue orbits, a generalization of the concept of eigenvalue.

In 2000-2005 has developed the first Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT), including a comprehensive measure of complexity.

Founded Ontonix Complexity Management in 2005 in the USA and launched in 2006 the first commercial system for MEASURING and managing complexity: OntoSpace.

In 2007 launched first on-line Resilience Rating for businesses, an objective and transparent rating system:


In 2009 delivered real-time technology to measure the complexity and stability of patients during operation or permanence in Intensive Care Units.


Developed a new theory of risk and rating published in 2009 in a book entitled "A New Theory of Risk and Rating".

Over last decade develops quantitative complexity management (QCM) technology and solutions for applications in economics, finance, Risk Rating and Management as well as in Asset Management and medicine. In the past five years works towards the democratization of ratings.

In 2013 he founded London-based Assetdyne, focusing on design of complexity-based high-performance portfolios and complexity-based asset allocation and asset management.


He is currently focusing on creating a new Rating Agency and a fund which will be managed via complexity technology (QCT).
