Artificial Intelligence, Profiling & Predictive Algorithms

Based on robust Machine Learning techniques, Sherpa’s Artificial Intelligence Algorithms predict and anticipate users’ needs before they are even expressed.

Predictive Algorithms

Using advanced predictive Machine Learning algorithms, based on complex probabilistic models, Sherpa is able to learn and codify complex functions that allow it to infer and anticipate relevant information at any given time. Having the knowledge of different domains of information allows the identification and exploitation of latent relationships between the various elements present and users, without the need for them to interact with the system.

The AI engine works constantly to analyze all the information possible and to always have the most relevant information available, without the need to search. Our algorithms are able to find patterns that underlie the data and give coherence to the information coming from different domains, which is theoretically unrelated.

The algorithms developed by Sherpa are capable of predicting the future of our users, before they're even aware of it themselves.

Artificial Intelligence, Profiling & Predictive Algorithms

User profiling

Its personalized predictive capabilities set it apart from market competitors. Sherpa analyzes over 100,000 parameters per user per day in order to formulate and continuously update individual profiles:

  • Demographics (Business traveler, electronics buyer, golfer, etc.)
  • Personal Interests (Fashion, technology, etc.)
  • Commuting Habits
  • Social Media Habits
  • Personal Relationships (Family, friends, coworkers, etc.)
  • Favorite Brands
  • Restaurant Preferences
  • Sports Preferences
  • And many more...

Unparalleled Linguistic Intelligence

Sherpa incorporates five levels of linguistic analysis to eliminate all possibility of misinterpretation - morphological, syntactical, semantic, pragmatic, and functional. Its sophisticated natural language technology mimics human understanding to dismiss impossible or unlikely matches.

Built-in Natural Language Capabilities

Packed with over 300,000 concepts and 5,000 syntactic and semantic rules, Sherpa's thoroughly tested core system provides the basis for a reliable and comprehensive approach to human-computer interaction.

The Sherpa dialogue manager and Sherpa natural language processing technology together represent an extremely capable and comprehensive approach to human-computer interaction. That's Sherpa.

Sherpa’s extensive resources of conceptual and linguistic information and its detailed, five-level approach to linguistic analysis makes it a highly accurate and flexible tool for building innovative natural language-based solutions.
