Microsoft AI Faves

February 9, 2016

I noted a blog post called “From Discovery to Selection: Announcing the Seattle Accelerator’s Third Batch.” The post lists companies which Microsoft wants to nurture. Here’s the list:

  • Affinio: Audience insights
  • Agolo: Summarization of text
  • Clarify: Rich media search
  • Defined Crowd: Natural language processing
  • Knomos: Palantir style analysis
  • Medwhat: Doctor made of soft software
  • OneBridge: Middleware for Microsoft cloud
  • Percolata: Retail staff monitoring
  • Plexuss: Palantir style analysis
  • Sim Machines: Similarity search and pattern recognition

Net net: Microsoft continues to hunt for solutions in search and analytics. There is a touch of “me too” in the niche plays too. Persistence is a virtue.
