Eureka! also offered sessions with Paul Zolfaghari, Managing Director at Carrick Capital Partners and former President of Microstrategy, as well as Laurent Paris, CTO of WeWork.
“Eureka! allowed our clients to share best practices, discuss trends, and learn from other industry thought leaders about the future of analytics,” said Sisense CEO Amir Orad. “Sisense is a leader in simplifying complex data to extract insights — at Eureka!, attendees had the opportunity to showcase how they are pioneers in their own right, sharing how analytics are transforming and disrupting their industries, and providing real-world examples of the awesome potential of business intelligence.”
Sisense also unveiled new AI bot functionality at the event, called Sisense Boto, part of Sisense’s strategy to embed insights everywhere. It not only allows people to “chat” with their data via Facebook, Skype and Slack, but also leverage machine learning to create a virtual data scientist, which can reveal and proactively send discoveries.
“Sisense took the lead in applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to the BI space, with the introduction of chatbots, IoT-enabled devices, and smart speakers such as the Amazon Echo,” said Guy Levy-Yurista, PhD, Vice President of Strategic Growth and Innovation at Sisense. “Now, we’re moving beyond AI that simply provides increased access to data-driven insights, and building out our vision for augmented analytics. Sisense Boto leverages cutting edge artificial intelligence to make its own discoveries — insights that are important, but too subtle to be detected by the human eye — and relating them directly to users.”
