Invite-only launch of Abzu’s pioneering machine learning technology receives positive feedback

One month after Abzu’s invite-only launch, the Copenhagen- and Barcelona-based startup reports receiving excellent feedback from a hand-selected group of users.

The decision to alter Abzu’s 21 April launch from full-release to invite-only due to the corona pandemic was disappointing. “It’s a little annoying,” commented Abzu’s CFO & COO Jonas Wilstrup, “but we’ll change the face of artificial intelligence with a select group of users instead of the public. And although this wasn’t the big splash we have all been working towards for the last two years, it has had its benefits: white-glove onboarding service, more tailored feedback, and the opportunity to improve our digital communications.”

Abzu has reimagined artificial intelligence to completely change the way problems are solved, introducing traceable and shared insights and a new standard of interpretability. This is achieved through Abzu’s proprietary QLattice, short for Quantum Lattice, an environment that considers innumerable models for a dataset and finds the best-fit. The data scientists and PhD candidates invited to experiment with Abzu’s revolutionary QLattice remarked on the cutting-edge technology.

“I got the overall impression of your ‘way-of-thinking’, which I think is really, really cool. You have some really cool principles regarding transparency and interpretation,” said one user. “I think it’s really interesting to try out a new way of thinking – or rethinking – machine learning.”

Inspired by quantum mechanics and neural networks, results are straightforward graphical representations with weights assigned to each node. Models are clearly interpreted like a decision tree, while still maintaining a high level of learning performance.

“My skepticism towards machine learning is that people apply very complicated models with lots of features to problems that are probably easier to solve. What I like about your product is that it takes into consideration that simpler models could also be a solution,” commented another user.

Abzu is thrilled that this select group of users has confirmed the unique value and ease-of-use of their innovative QLattice, which builds learnings on experience instead of data. “Many more companies will be able to build advanced AI models to help their business. That’s a gamechanger that will cut into the technological lead held by such giants as Google, Apple, and Amazon,” says Abzu CEO Casper Wilstrup.

Abzu’s invite-only launch will continue until its full release scheduled for Fall 2020.
