Data management and analytics provider Databricks is further extending its AI capabilities with the acquisition of startup Einblick, for an undisclosed sum.
Einblick was founded by researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Brown University, whose research explored the boundaries of machine learning, human-computer interaction, and natural language processing.
The Einblick team has spent the last four years building an AI-native collaboration platform that helps users solve data problems “with just one sentence”.
Einblick has pioneered techniques for translating natural language questions into the code, charts and models needed to generate insights. This not only requires applying the latest generative modelling capabilities, but also highly optimising them for the data-related questions, said Databricks.
“The next wave of data tools must also understand more than general language to work well, they need to understand the jargon and semantic information specific to each company.
“By joining forces with Databricks, the ideas behind Einblick can be more powerfully extended,” added the vendor.
The acquisition follows the deal to buy MosaicML in June last year for $1.3 billion. MosaicML empowers enterprises to build their own AI solutions.
