Strange Loop builds software using modern, probabilistic technology, with a human touch, in order to make a difference.

"What I mean by 'strange loop' is (...) not a physical circuit but an abstract loop in which, in the series of stages that constitute the cycling-around, there is a shift from one level of abstraction (or structure) to another, which feels like an upwards movement in a hierarchy, and yet somehow the successive 'upward' shifts turn out to give rise to a closed cycle. That is, despite one's sense of departing ever further from one's origin, one winds up, to one's shock, exactly where one had started out. In short, a strange loop is a paradoxical level-crossing feedback loop." —Douglas Hofstadter, I Am a Strange Loop
