Transforming the way we work
These transformations are happening throughout the business world as well, but usually in less obvious ways to the casual observer. In business the highest value technology applications are those that improve the speed, quality and accuracy of standardized processes on one hand, or that are able to directly assist humans in performing higher value work on the other. Although the science fiction aspects of the AI field are captivating to all of us, it is these practical applications that are really transforming the way we work. This is what Kim is all about.
The Kim Technologies platform uses AI concepts known as Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Machine Intelligence, Intelligence Amplification and Swarm Intelligence to create AI-enabled applications rapidly by obtaining information directly from knowledge workers who have no software development expertise. Kim is then able to apply its cognitive capabilities to that knowledge in a wide variety of useful ways. Our approaches have patents pending and have been put into place by some of the largest companies in the world.
The Kim Platform – Creating AI Enabled Software Applications
There are several aspects to the Kim platform. The first is its ability for individuals with no information technology training to build AI enabled applications without the use of any software programming. Kim’s use of AI to assist in creating these “No Code” applications is unique in the world of software. By having ways of allowing knowledge workers to easily provide information to the system using documents and forms that they already use every day, Kim can create high value, purpose built applications in hours or days. Comparable software development projects could easily take months or years to complete and require specialized expertise. Some vendors tout “low code” environments, but that is just a way of their saying that they have their own way of programming applications. None of that is necessary with Kim.
We have removed the barriers between envisioning the system you need, creating it and having it in productive use quickly and easily. This is a critical aspect of applying Artificial Intelligence to your business problems. Too many vendors treat AI as something you can just “bolt onto” an old system; an approach that limits how AI capabilities can be used and creating projects that are costly, time consuming and provide sub-optimal results. With Kim this is not the case. In order to harness the power of AI you need to have a foundation of knowledge and information and a method for understanding the processes you are trying to improve or automate. This integrated and unified approach, created and deployed by knowledge workers, is part of what makes Kim truly unique.
The Kim application environment encompasses such functions as:
- Content, Knowledge and Data assimilation and management
- Dynamic Case Management and collaboration
- Document generation and management
- Enterprise level activity tracking and search
- Process automation and management
- Process analytics and dashboards
As a by-product of establishing these AI-enabled applications, Kim automatically creates a powerful Application Programming Interface (API) layer. This permits the extension of any Kim application by creating dynamic interfaces with other legacy software systems that may exist in your organization. This API layer enables the system to upload or exchange information in a fully automated fashion.
The Kim Platform – Applying Cognition
Once the system has an understanding of your information and the business processes you are trying to automate and improve, Kim can apply its cognitive capabilities to perform such actions as:
- Continuously enrich the Knowledge Base as Kim assimilates more data over time and “learns” from user interactions and additional information provided to the system
- Analyze and interpret the content of documents or structured data streams permitting it to highlight deviations from best practices and to make recommendations for alternatives
- Generate new documents and web services based on the interpretation of documents provided and any learned alternatives
- Establish an enterprise level search capability based not only on text, but on the evaluation of content and named entities in the data
Smart Process Application Solutions
By working with partners who have deep domain expertise in specific functional areas or industries, the Kim team has created pre-configured solutions for Legal Operations, Compliance, Procurement and Human Resources. These pre-configured solutions provide our clients with best practices and rapid implementations to dramatically shorten their time-to-value.
The Kim platform and its associated pre-configured solutions are available globally through our Software-as-a-Service delivery model. All that you need is a web browser and access to the internet in order to harness the power of the Kim platform for your business.
We partner with Enterprise class cloud service providers such as Microsoft Azure and Claranet to provide highly secure, scalable and high performance access to the Kim system. We are ISO 27001 certified and meet the most rigorous information security and data privacy standards.
