Eureka! allowed our clients to share best practices, discuss trends, and learn from other industry thought leaders about the future of analytics.

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. 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.Guy Levy-Yurista, PhD, Vice President of Strategic Growth and Innovation at SisenseTo learn more about Sisense Eureka!, go to.events.sisense.com
