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.
