Traditional analytical techniques and tools can disguise critical insights due to oversimplification of the output display model. Ayasdi’s topological approach retains the essential integrity of your dataset, ensuring that you can see critical subgroups and patterns. Ayasdi’s core engine utilizes topological data analysis (TDA), a technique pioneered by our founders to simplify the analysis of complex, multivariate datasets. Topology provides a mathematical framework for applying a complete range of statistical, geometric, and machine learning methods, revealing insights from the geometry of your data.
Most machine learning systems are using a single algorithm to try to capture everything about the world. Digital Reasoning takes an entirely different approach. Our software incorporates a more human-like intelligence that uses a graph-based knowledge model to enable predictions based on a high-fidelity representation of context. In simple terms: It thinks more like people do. And, like the human mind, our technology learns, adapts and gets smarter over time.
