What they do

Hyper Anna is a natural-language driven artificial intelligence data analytics solution that enables businesses to interact with and understand their data collections and derive strategic insights either without needing in-house data scientists, or freeing up in-house resources to focus on more complex analytics tasks. Customers can use voice, text or email to ask ‘Anna’ a question about existing data sets, receiving a response in real-time in the form of charts and insights once Anna has analysed the data.
