Knoema is the latest data provider to add a conversational interface.
The McLean, Virginia-based company has launched an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered chatbot called Yodatai, which it describes as the first digital assistant for public and corporate data. The name, CEO Vladimir Bougay told me, is a shortening of “your data AI.”
His company provides access to industry, governmental and market data from thousands of providers, including the US Census, the US Department of Energy and other sources around the world. Additionally, Yodatai has been integrated with product analytics platform Amplitude and can access other databases via API. Integrations with other data services are in the works.
Developed for Slack, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Twitter, Skype and email, Yodatai can answer questions like:
- How big is Sweden’s population?
- How many users signed up for our company’s products last week?
- What data do you have on X?
