Quark.ai Joins NVIDIA Inception Program
Santa Clara, California — March 19, 2018— Quark.ai, a startup seeking to replace simple search with relevant and detailed question answering on every website, today announced it has joined the NVIDIA Inception program. The Inception program is designed to nurture startups revolutionizing industries through advancements in AI and data sciences.
As personal assistants such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant rapidly change users’ expectations for how they can find information, Quarki.ai has developed innovative technology to find answers from enterprise documents and webpages in response to questions in natural language, enabling personal assistant-like functionality on any website. The startup allows users to see highly relevant results instantly, rather than having to scour scores of content to locate the information they need, as they have to do when given typical lists of enterprise search results. The applications of Quark.ai technology is wide-ranging, from improving user experience for search and chat interfaces on websites to creating fully automated customer support and deflection.
“Because NVIDIA so strongly supports major deep learning platforms that allow our researchers to seamlessly implement fast variants of recurrent neural networks, we have used NVIDIA’s GPU technology to power all of our natural language understanding algorithms that make use of deep learning techniques,” said Sanjeev Kumar, CEO of Quark.ai. “We are therefore thrilled to become a NVIDIA Inception member and look forward to leveraging the community and eco-system around the program to continue to drive business development, knowledge sharing, and innovation.”
NVIDIA’s Inception program is a virtual accelerator program that helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping, and deployment. Every Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, from hardware grants and marketing support to training with deep learning experts.
Quark.ai is a startup on a mission to replace simple search with advanced question answering on every single website in the world. It has developed technology using the latest deep learning and classical natural language understanding techniques to find answers from enterprise documents and webpages in response to users’ questions in natural language. By embracing advances in deep neural networks, Quark.ai takes sites beyond enterprise search, chat-bots, and basic support deflection to provide users with customized, direct responses to their questions, rather than a collection of information that may or may not be relevant. Quark.ai opened its offices in Santa Clara, California in 2017.
