Sisense Hunch Debuts
October 29, 2018
launched the patent-pending Sisense Hunch Data Cognition Engine ("Sisense
Hunch"). Sisense Hunch 'learns' massive datasets and can produce
microsecond analytical responses to queries that are 99 percent accurate
or better, with a tiny fraction of the cost and storage footprint.
Sisense Hunch represents a new class of big data analytics, data
cognition engines, which can be applied to a number of revolutionary
applications that were impossible due to latency and cost. Sisense Hunch
puts the power of tens of billions of rows of data into a small,
portable, cost-effective, and secure Internet of Things (IoT) package -
effectively turning sensors, phones, and wearables into supercomputers.
"Sisense Hunch achieves the impossible, taking large datasets that
require massive amounts of computing power and storage, and making them
digestible with an edge IoT device," said Amir Orad, Chief Executive
Officer of Sisense. "Once a Sisense Hunch neural network learns data, it
doesn't need any ongoing access to the complete underlying data set,
allowing it to achieve lightning-fast, analytical query responses, with
minimal costs, while maintaining complete data privacy. That's what
makes it possible to move 'supercomputing' to the 'edge,' turning IoT
devices from data collectors into smart data analyzers."
Sisense Hunch is currently in testing with multiple Sisense clients, and
has been used to streamline efficiencies around quality control at a
production facility of a publicly listed electronics manufacturer.
Before Sisense Hunch, obtaining big data insights through high
performance databases was slow and expensive, so they were off-limits to
most business users and processes. With Sisense Hunch, massive stores of
data are transformed into mere megabytes allowing for microsecond
response times and the ability to be placed anywhere, even inside a tiny
Hunch represents a paradigm shift in how to extract insights from
outrageously large data sets," said Dr. Guy Levy-Yurista, Vice President
of Strategic Growth and Innovation at Sisense, and one of the inventors
of the technology. "Instead of investing huge amounts of money and
effort in an attempt to process big data queries faster, Sisense Hunch
condenses immense volumes of data into lightweight neural networks
'brains' for quick and easy analysis. These 'brains' decipher the
patterns hidden in the data, perceiving its deep embedded structure.
This means that business users can easily access big data insights, and
then these insights can be made available through a host of IoT devices
which are available today."
The Big Data and Business Analytics Solutions market is forecasted to
reach $260 billion by 2022 according to IDC. Sisense Hunch is positioned
to disrupt this market making it possible to deliver the value of big
data anywhere it is needed at a small fraction of the cost.
Furthermore, Sisense Hunch offers significant benefits to securing
information in massive databases. Sisense Hunch can be trained to ignore
sensitive and personal information, giving organizations the benefit of
big-data insights without the inherent security risks.
