According to a recent press release, “Data startup Cinchapi was named the winner of the second Atlanta Startup Battle pitch competition, held last night at Tech Square Labs in Midtown Atlanta. Cinchapi bested four other startups finalists culled from over 400 applicant companies. With its winning pitch, Cinchapi’s founder and CEO, Jeff Nelson explained how the Cinchapi Data Platform makes the preparation and exploration of data far more intuitive and efficient than previously possible. The judging panel, comprised of current venture capitalists from Silicon Valley and Atlanta, apparently was impressed by how the platform combines machine learning with human intelligence to radically reduce data prep, and to expose patterns, anomalies, and relationships which warrant further investigation. ‘I’m honored that the judges understood Cinchapi’s vision of using a combination of human and machine intelligence to deliver real-time analytics.’ said Nelson after Cinchapi’s victory was announced.”

The release goes on, “Nelson’s winning pitch focused on the Cinchapi Data Platform (CDP) and it’s Ask, See, and Act workflow. In an effort to make data conversational, the platform’s context-aware, natural language interface allows users to ask questions with common English words and phrases. The CDP’s analytic engine lets users see the results via vivid visualizations alongside easily understood text-based responses. Lastly, users of the platform can act by triggering enterprise automation workflows, generating code snippets for use in data-driven applications, or they can quickly identify interesting data which warrants additional investigation by a human. Indeed, it was the human element that stuck out to investor Allen Nance, one of the founders of Tech Square Labs, and the Atlanta Startup Battle.”
