The notion of a higher Segal object was introduces by Dyckerhoff and Kapranov as a general framework for studying (higher) associativity inherent
in a wide range of mathematical objects. Most of the examples are related to Hall algebra type constructions, which include quantum groups. We describe a construction that assigns to a simplicial object S a datum H(S) which is naturally interpreted as a "d-lax A-infinity algebra” precisely when S is a (d+1)-Segal object. This extends the extensively studied d=2 case.
