Today we are proud to announce the launch of one of the most radical innovations introduced in the Big Data market in years – Sisense’s Hunch™ – a Data Cognition Engine.

Sisense’s Hunch is a new category of an ultrahigh performant database and analytics engine based on deep neural networks. Hunch delivers extremely high query rate performance (microsecond to milliseconds) over very large datasets compressed by orders of magnitude (terabytes down to megabytes) with a pre-defined accuracy loss.

We have been developing Hunch under the radar over the past couple of years and at first we just couldn’t believe our own eyes – the results were just too good to be true!

When we tested Hunch on real datasets the results simply wowed us. For example, we have built a 2MB Hunch model (what we like to call a Hunch “brain”) comprising only 500 neurons replacing one billion records and 250GB. The resulting Hunch brain delivers results at a rate of 100,000 answers per second and with over 99% accuracy.

How can Sisense’s Hunch be used?

Well, there are tons of possibilities that Sisense’s Hunch opens up. Here are a few:

Make Big Data Interactive

Users can enjoy interactive data exploration over terabytes of data using Hunch’s microsecond to millisecond response times, only querying the more expensive, slower Big Data system directly when very precise detail is required.

Bring the Value of Big Data to the Edge

Sisense’s Hunch compresses terabytes of data into a Hunch brain that occupies 2MB-5MB for each terabyte. Once in place, Hunch requires no access to the underlying data, putting the power of your data anywhere you need it while eliminating the need for storage, processing power, and bandwidth.

Guaranteed 100% Data Privacy

Since Sisense’s Hunch doesn’t retain any knowledge about the lowest level of detail in your data. There is zero risk that queries could return sensitive data that is prohibited by your policy or regulatory compliance requirements.

Zero Footprint Big Data “Storage”

Go ahead and drain your data swamp. In cases where the row-level detail is not needed or cannot be stored (such as with GDPR), Hunch can completely replace Big Data repositories with a nearly accurate solution that will satisfy most analytic needs.

Innovation Design Partner – Celestica


We have a hunch that you’re ready to jump in…

Sisense’s Hunch is now at a stage where we are opening it up to our customers, seeking additional use cases, and looking to work with new design partners. If you have read until here and your mind is racing with the possibilities that Hunch opens up to you, reach out to us!

We imagine the impossible and deliver the improbable. Sisense’s Hunch is only the beginning!
