What we cover in this week’s recap:
Cognaize enhances capabilities of its IDP platform IDP vendor Cognaize has announced enhancements to its IDP platform for financial services firms. The new capabilities extend the accuracy of Cognaize’s Financial Insights Engine through its proprietary Knowledge Graph. The Cognaize Knowledge Graph builds an extensive and interconnected knowledge network from various documents, is verified by human experts, and then uses the newfound understanding to answer user queries. This takes the automation of new financial document ingestion to a new level, for example, after processing a bond indenture, the acquired knowledge is used to automatically extract additional information about the bond. Vahe Andonians, founder, CTO and CPO of Cognaize, explained: “Cognaize’s Knowledge Graph is a step forward in replicating human intellect by constructing an intricate model of the world and providing a path to true artificial intelligence. We will continue to match our rapid pace of technology innovation with our hybrid intelligence approach that puts our customer’s financial experts at the center throughout the document automation process to ensure optimal accuracy and efficiency for the world leading innovators in banking and insurance.”
