The leading company in artificial intelligence (AI) for language understanding expert.ai (EXAI:IM) was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in The Forrester Wave™: Text Analytics for both People-Oriented and Document-Oriented Platforms*.
In their 26-criterion evaluation of document-oriented text analytics platforms, Forrester identified the 12 most significant platforms in the market; their 29-criterion evaluation of people-focused text analytics identified the 13 most significant platforms. In both reports, expert.ai was named as a Strong Performer, receiving the highest scores possible in eight criteria, including data enrichment and labeling, support for relevant use cases, knowledge-based AI, subdocument text analytics, document-level text analytics, natural language inference (People-Oriented), DevOps, and architecture and deployment options.
