AI technologies have become a part of daily life. AI can be monetized in digital business models. Chat-bots, personal assistants, roboadvisors, machine learning und cognitive computing are relevant technologies and become parts of corporate strategies. Big data technologies, open source software, cloud computing and affordable high performance computing dramatically reduce costs for cpu-consuming tasks like analysing patterns and trends in the web. AI based business models can actually pay off. Mega trends like IoT/m2m, smart products or intelligent supply chains become even more boost with cheap AI available.

We experience the dawn of AI age. Behind all the hype there are remarkable actual breakthroughs. A new kind of software autonomously anticipates wishes of users and customers by cognizing patterns, knowledge, plannings and even argumentations. This process called machine learning makes the development of new software even quicker and cheaper. Software develops software. Machine learning is and will remain below human intelligence but the development reached a maturity level that enables more profitable business models and more efficient processes.

    Business Matching

    How it works

    Cintelligence was founded by leading experts for networking and business development events.

    • Our invitation and admissions strategy creates qualified high level experts groups to assure meaningful networking.
    • As attendee you’ll receive an online questionnaire for your interests and competencies you’d like to share.
    • Your profile based on the questionnaire will be matched with the profiles of peers and solution partners.
    • The results of this matchmaking will be documented prior to the event in our online platform, i.e. you’ll see how other members can help you with your challenges or how you can help them.
    • Results are being sorted by relevance.
    • Based on these results you can ask for and prioritize meetings or be asked by others within the online platform.
    • Based on these wishes we’ll propose meeting schedules with individual agendas for you to make the most out of limited time.
    According to our experiences self service systems do not work properly for high level business networking since decision makers simply don’t have the time and focus outside their core business. This is why we proactively help our customers to find their meeting partners. Our system guarantees maximum networking results in the most efficient way for decision makers.
