Nara Launches AI-Driven Personalization-as-a-Service for Businesses

Nara Logics, Inc., an artificial intelligence company focused on turning big data into smart data, launched today its personalization-as-a-service platform for businesses, which will be led by former Google executive, Mark Ebel. Created by MIT neuroscientists, Nara’s underlying cloud-based technology mines large data sets, including the entire Internet, to create meaningful connections and intelligent insights between businesses and their customers. More information and the ability to request a demo are available at www.naralogics.com.

“As we continue to build the Nara Neural Network, we’ve discovered the golden trifecta of personalization — a brain-like, breakthrough algorithm; efficient ways to mine extremely large data sets; and a continuously updating, deep learning system,” said Thomas Copeman, chief executive officer and founder of Nara. “We’re excited to provide personalization to businesses of all sizes.”

With over four years of research and development, Nara continues to grow its global patent portfolio and has recently begun to expand relationships with businesses within various industries: consumer retail, financial services, e-commerce, telecom, healthcare, proving just how general and novel their platform is. This is the first time a company is offering a more sophisticated form of personalization-as-a-service to any and all businesses.

How It Works

Nara’s cloud-based neural network is flexible, so it plugs into an existing technology infrastructure and immediately starts re-indexing and augmenting data to improve relevance. Nara can clean existing data, and provide richer and more relevant data from across the Internet. With this complete data, Nara arms businesses with the insights needed for its algorithm to produce truly effective personalization.

Nara’s plug-and-play API then renders, in real-time, individually tailored webpages for each unique user throughout any given site. What’s more is that the algorithm continuously learns from and grows with users as they interact with a business’s personalized product(s) over time.

How Businesses Benefit

Nara helps businesses re-index online information, increase relevance and provide insight in real-time. By utilizing Nara’s personalization engines, businesses across various industries can learn more about their customers, increase engagement, improve experiences and ultimately drive more conversions online and offline. Nara also provides the tools to make it easy for any business to tune and manage the results and metrics that personalization produces. This technology can be applied to any product or device (website, mobile, etc.) and to any marketing channel.

Former Google Executive Joins Nara Team

Mark Ebel recently joined as a senior vice president of business development. Mark is responsible for expanding Nara’s platform services among major retailers, ad agencies, brands and global 1000 companies.

Prior to joining Nara, Mark led business development and e-commerce within brands like Google, Intel, Best Buy and Toys R Us.

Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
