A Machine Learning Tool Without The Infrastructure Costs: An Overview Of Genius

February 1, 2018 at 8:02 AM

With all the possibilities it presents, machine learning is on many a company’s to-do list for 2018. You could determine the optimal time and number to reach prospects and debtors on, improve cross-sell and upsell rates by offering the perfect next product at the perfect time or you can know when to give which customer a discount or special offer to prevent churn. But the costs of implementation of a machine learning tool in just one business area is high.

With Genius Machine Learning as a Service, you remove infrastructure costs, making it the go-to machine learning tool for business-users.

Genius, MLaaS

We've developed our Machine Learning as a Service tool to bring the benefits of Machine Learning to more business end-users. Our range of Genius applications is made up of different sets of defined questions - or data models - that we've designed Genius to answer. With every new outcome, machine learning techniques improve subsequent answers. Genius can be hosted or on premise and the monthly service fee includes ongoing maintenance, hardware, service and security upgrades.
