The French company designed an open source platform where users can create and share semantic bricks that will help them to analyse texts in any language. With viky.ai, users can develop natural language while processing these semantic bricks, named viky.ai’s agents, without a single line of code. The new platform provides a unique codeless user interface, with a new way to create semantic modules that are easy to integrate through API into the user system.
“Viky.ai’s agents are systems that allow users to talk with a machine using artificial intelligence. For example, it is possible to automate tasks thanks to the information that an intelligent agent will search for itself. This field is growing, driven by continuing advances in artificial intelligence”, explained Patrick Constant, the CEO of the company Pertimm during an interview to the journal GPO.fr.
