Unlike other natural language based solutions difficult and expensive to implement on company-specific data, Kyndi’s end-to-end offerings enable customers to leverage best-in-class “natural language search as a service”, enabling organizations to immediately realize tangible business values from their investment in the AI. With a focus on empowering business lines and delivering business value, Kyndi has seen tremendous market traction in recent years.
Kyndi’s natural language search solution is the first end-to-end offering designed to optimize the relevance and speed of finding answers in unstructured textual data. Due to limited NLP expertise and the cost of tuning and deploying state-of-the-art language models, organizations of all sizes often overlook natural language search as a true business enabler.
“Kyndi has proven that customers derive significant business value from their investments in natural language search, from simplifying website content discovery to boosting engagement and conversion, to enabling for employees to serve themselves and find the actionable insights that drive productivity and operational efficiency,” Reuters said. “I’m thrilled to join such an innovative company and look forward to helping organizations take full advantage of AI.”
