Webinar of June 28th 2021 with Richard Lemaire: AI methods for Competitive Intelligence in Switzerland

Flyer Webinar NiiWaa - Richard Lemaire

18 minutes, this is the time Netflix users spend to choose a movie. 11 minutes, this is the time to do an average search on google. Growth of information availability is diluting the revelant information we are looking for. However, intelligence needs for decision makers are dramatic in an ever shifting blue ocean. Fact is, competitive intelligence needs are unique on per user basis. Furthermore the existing intelligence professional tools require an expert to master them.

The objective of this presentation was to show how we (1) embedded AI to tackle the issue of bringing in-the-target information for each one of our users and (2) optimize UX to place end-user in the center of its intelligence harvesting. NiiWaa’s capabality stem from the linking of 3 technological bricks (AI, User interface, web scrapping) used independantly by alternate intelligence platforms. An interactive-educational loop direclty is owned by information end-user enables our alogrithm to tune its search case by case. This method allows extension of research range (by validating or infirming words newly identified) whilst narrowing down the final results : relevant information. This session will be articulated around a tool-demonstration on a actual topic.

This Webinar was presented by Richard Lemaire, CEO of Aprobase and founder of the NiiWaa solution, Richard is an Entrepreneur, an innovation actor and discovery enthousiast. After years of use of Aprobase’s services he takes over the company in 2015 and immediately starts the processes’ digitalization. Through his years as intelligence specialist he witnesses the lack of direct intelligence solutions for decision makers : market available solutions need to be operated by intelligence specialists. He translates his beliefs of the intelligence unicity needs into NiiWaa, an in-house algorithm that he is now pushing to the market.

Throughout his career he patented 2 inventions and created another company. On-the-field actor, he held several positions in the States, Canada and Western Africa in the mining and energy sector. Human-oriented, he supports NGOs and takes part in other human entreprises. He is also a former board member of Swissintell.
