Mar 27, 2017 by

Dr. Amy Neustein, whose personal history of having lost complete contact with her only child due solely to the vagaries of the New York City Family Court system is well known in the Jewish and secular community, has a record of taking her personal pain and transposing it into activism for the general good. After decades of helping other vulnerable parents and children—Jews and Gentiles—deal with the perils of oftentimes capricious family courts and, in the process, winning accolades from social scientist, lawyers, and children’s rights activists, Dr. Neustein has taken her role as scholar, editor, and writer on a new path. She is now the founder and CEO of Linguistic Technology Software (LTS), Inc, a Fort Lee, NJ-based company that combines higher-scale natural language understanding with computer technology to build a radically different kind of user interface for the kinds of websites that are frequently accessed at home, in the office, in healthcare settings, and in the car.

“Even before gambling, most people thought of Atlantic City as an icon of pop culture, a center of honky-tonk music and rock-and-roll.
