Article from the business section of the Adelaide Review:

The idea for Complexica emerged from than more than 200 meetings that the founders of the business had over a six-month period in all cities in Australia, whether it was banks, mining, telcos, infrastructure, agribusiness, manufacturers or utilities. They wanted to understand how the world was changing, what problems businesses were dealing with and why those problems had not been addressed. From these meetings, they discovered that businesses were looking for technology that could rapidly analyse complex data.

Co-founder Matthew Michalewicz elaborates: “Just about every business talked about how much data they were collecting, how it was a priority for them to use that data to either be more efficient or make better decisions in the market. To try and use that to engage with consumers or customers,” he says. “That whole concept of transforming data into actionable insight was an absolute recurring theme. The underlying problem was that they were unable to do it or they had made attempts that were producing very poor results. They were hiring people who were analysing data and the results weren’t great. The idea emerged: ‘Wouldn’t it be great if there was a software application that could do it automatically’. That’s how it happened.”

23rd January 2016 / News
Article from the business section of the Advertiser:

Larry is a digital assistant® — picture a “Siri” for your business — which can perform complex data analysis, which would take a team of human data scientists weeks, in a matter of moments. What does this look like in practice? Picture a software client which can prompt your sales reps about what a customer should be buying to boost their business and keep up with competitors. One which can look at all of the quotes you’ve won and lost across your business and analyse why you won some and missed out on others. And a program which reacts in real time to developments in your business and your customer’s, and adapts immediately.

Basically any data rich task which humans can do, but slowly, Larry can be trained to do. Better. Larry is the product of two years’ concerted work by the team at Adelaide-based software company Complexica. But it’s also a product of a lifetime spent in the company of and in business with mathematicians skilled in artificial intelligence — Mr Michalewicz’s father and Complexica’s chief scientist Zbigniew Michalewicz has published more than 20 books and a multitude of scientific articles on AI.
