About Cerebri AI
 
Cerebri AI is the creator of CVX, an end-to-end platform that automates AI processes from data engineering to the next best actions for multiple KPI and thus achieves CI. CVX 3 platform delivers the fastest time to market with production-ready BI and AI insights while not forgoing the quality that every enterprise or network operator expects from their analytics initiatives. Key to this performance is the fact that all processing on CVX is event-based.
 
CVX 3 platform implements Continuous Intelligence for classification, recommendation, and next best actions. It is designed to scale horizontally with data sources, event rates from said sources, KPIs management, BI insights, and AI insights. Continuous Intelligence ( CI ) is the ability to integrate raw data, calculate engineered data into datasets in real-time, score KPIs, generate insights seamlessly at scale. CI is essential to time-series processing. CI is the sine qua non for time-sensitive management of multiple Key Performance Indicators ( KPI ).
 
CI enables a slew of positive business outcomes and use cases:
·      Dynamic personalization: Serve content, propose products, promote services, or execute actions
·      Dynamic customer cohort creation: Determine cohorts of similar behavior or tuned to specific KPIs
·      Scalable actions across segments of customers
·      Usage-based/behavior-based pricing models: Insurance based on behavior
·      Abnormality and fraud detection: Identify and prevent unauthorized activity
·      Security and remediation: Detect issues and alert responders in exponentially less time than traditional security through intelligent analyses
·      Network performance: Monitor and respond to network performance issues faster
·      IoT analytics: Unify disparate data sources to reduce costs and improve performance
·      IOT TCO: Reduces the cost of installation by reducing tuning and maintenance 
 
How do we do this? We hire the best data scientists, mathematicians, and software developers and work as a cross-disciplinary team/gang/clan. We work hard, laugh hard, and impress our peers and clients. Because we can. And because we want to. To learn more, visit cerebriai.com.
