5 Natural Language Processing Companies Using GPT-3

Back in the 1960s, Joseph Weizenbaum of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory created one of the first chatbots, which he named ELIZA. Weizenbaum modeled its conversational style after Carl Rogers, a psychotherapist who was known for parroting patients’ responses back at them. His hypothesis was that while chatbots could emulate human conversation superficially, they could […]

Optimizing Call Center Conversations Using AI

After many years of covering disruptive technologies here at Nanalyze, regular readers will be familiar with our many running jokes.

Automating Financial Review Processes with Ocrolus

Last fall we sent one of our MBAs over to the Caucasus for a month to scout interesting technology startups, one of which was Krisp.

So, we were particularly surprised to learn that the Doobie Brothers eventually got back together. What hasn’t surprised us is the ongoing application of artificial intelligence […]

Interpreting Sign Language Using Artificial Intelligence

While discussing cultural stereotypes is borderline illegal in ‘Murica these days, we have no problem opening those doors. That’s because cultural stereotypes largely have some truth to them which makes them amusing – unless you’re German in which case you probably don’t have a sense of humor. Corporations today are becoming increasingly globalized and it’s […]

Alternative Data for Predicting Geopolitical Risk

A machine learning algorithm is only as good as the data you use to train it with. That’s why any company that has a large proprietary data set can now start to extract exclusive insights from it, something that in the olden days we used to call “data mining.” Nowadays, it’s all about trying to predict the […]
