An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

Today’s machine learning toolkits require deep AI technical skills, while API-based machine learning platforms consume massive quantities of data, only to build insight into a particular corpus, or body of knowledge.

Bonsai turns this entire machine learning context on its head with its novel ‘machine teaching’ approach. Based on Inkling, Bonsai’s simple domain-specific language, business analysts and other professionals with limited expertise in AI can build simple lessons, each consisting of simple constraints and an end condition.

The Bonsai platform uses sets of lessons of increasing sophistication to train any system that depends upon control and optimization, from robots to automated factory lines to office building facilities management systems.

Bonsai’s intuitive, declarative approach to machine learning brings AI within the reach of any enterprise seeking to leverage the power of the technology to build intelligent systems or implement intelligent operations in its organization.
