Building a Business on Artificial Intelligence

Abstract: People don’t look at raw numbers and immediately make qualitative assessments. Professionals need more than digits and decimals to do their job well. Sageworks’ patented expert system translates financial statement numbers into plain language assessments to help businesses make better decisions and better understand their financial information.

Mark Woodwell, Chief Software Engineer at Sageworks will discuss how the company’s patented A.I. was conceived and developed in order to achieve its mission of helping businesses make better decisions.
