CluedIn AI Assistant - The Future of Master Data Management

CluedIn

The CluedIn AI Assistant has landed.

The world's first Azure OpenAI-powered AI Assistant for Master Data Management (MDM) was showcased  in a live session with Microsoft today. CluedIn CEO, Tim Ward, showcased its ability to solve several complex data challenges using natural language and chat box prompts.

This included impressive, lightning-fast analysis of large datasets, instant data streaming between teams, and creation of new business rules.
