Background of Affiliation
CrowdANALYTIX is a platform for building high precision custom AI solutions. Their unique approach of building AI modules, each tuned to a single task and combining those modules to deliver the final solution results in much higher precision than more generic AI approaches. In fact, they achieve this cost effectively and at high speed by leveraging a global community of over 20,000 data scientists that build hundreds of these AI modules in parallel. CrowdANALYTIX also has an efficient and scalable deployment platform to allow seamless API based integration with existing customer systems. Their unique platform combined with their in-house team of solution managers who are trained to understand customer business challenges and translate them into AI solution definitions, allow them to create custom solutions that actually work and deliver value.
Having begun collaborations with CrowdANALYTIX in December 2017 and having already commenced operation tests with several user companies, Macnica aims to acquire approximately 20 customers within the first year of operation.
Features: CrowdANALYTIX's AI solutions have 3 major features.
- Provision of high-precision AI services through modular AI
Through use of modular AI, each AI model provides compartmentalized, specialized functions. CrowdANALYTIX provides custom AI solutions that utilize these models in various combinations. Specialized AI modules perform specific judgments with a high level of accuracy, and complex combinations of these AI modules produce high-precision AI solutions.
- Seamless integration with company systems
CrowdANALYTIX deploys the AI modules on an execution platform via APIs and dashboards developed to match the data formats required by companies. This allows seamless integration of AI functions with the user company’s existing systems and processes.
- High ROI
CrowdANALYTIX’s own data scientists take the AI modules obtained from the data science community and combine them to create an enhanced AI product. Then, software technicians fully customize and integrate the different AI modules to enable businesses to seamlessly implement high-precision AI solutions within a short time. This, combined with a post-implementation accuracy guarantee, achieves high ROI.
