About the talk
Augmented Intelligence: Automating AI model deployment
AI for All: Just as computing moved from giant mainframes to phones in our hands, the power of AI must do the same. This is especially important in the enterprise so AI can augment the intelligence of every worker to transform business performance and accelerate innovation.
In this Tech Showcase, CEO Igor Jablokov will demonstrate how Pryon provides automated AI. He’ll show real-time content ingestion and the immediate birth of a Conversational AI model for that content. Igor will converse with this brand-new AI model to show that it has become intelligent about the content to answer questions and generate summaries, saving untold amounts of human time and effort.
Pryon makes this augmented intelligence vision a reality by offering automation, accuracy, and scale. If we do not automate AI, then AI only benefits those with access to the limited number of AI and data science experts required to implement today’s solutions. This raises costs and lengthens project implementation times creating a huge barrier to wide adoption.
How does an AI startup help democratize AI? Pryon is run by several of the people who created the core technologies behind Amazon Alexa and IBM Watson and is utilizing AI, ML, and NLP expertise to leapfrog conventional approaches to knowledge management and workflow integration. Pryon’s proprietary technology automatically processes unstructured information like humans do, making millions of subconscious observations that go far beyond keyword recognition. It turns data into “knowledge assets” by reading and comprehending at scale, returning the most salient answers from any set of documents in an instant.
