Just as last year, the data tech ecosystem has continued to “fire on all cylinders”. If nothing else, data is probably even more front and center in 2018, in both business and personal conversations.
- World Economic Forum on Thursday announced its selection of the world’s 61 most promising Technology Pioneers 2018, the most diverse class of such pioneers ever
- Companies were selected for their potential to “transform society and industry” and “shape the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” Fulvia Montresor of the World Economic Forum said
- Gamalon’s Idea Learning technology, which empowers enterprises to read, understand and interact with billions of customer messages, made it to the selection for its contributions in the field of artificial intelligence

Cambridge MA – June 21st, 2018 – Gamalon, creator of next-generation artificial intelligence technology for natural language, was selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers, a group of the world’s most innovative companies. Using Gamalon’s Idea Learning AI platform, enterprises can listen, learn and respond to customer messages at scale. Gamalon enables simultaneous, one-on-one personal conversations with millions of people.
One startup working in this space is Gamalon. The Cambridge, Massachusetts company last month received $20 million in Series A funding led by Intel Capital to streamline the identification of ideas from large amounts of data.
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Ben Vigoda from Gamalon. The company recently closed a Series A financing and has been one of the most forward thinking AI companies around. Ben was the guy who introduced me to the concept of probabilistic programming when we met a couple of years ago, and Gamalon is one of the few startups taking such an approach.
An approach to artificial intelligence that embraces uncertainty and ambiguity could paradoxically help make future virtual assistants less confused. Gamalon, an AI startup based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, developed the new technique for teaching machines to handle language, and several businesses are now testing a chatbot platform that uses it
Gamalon, a startup that says it has developed artificial intelligence-like software that avoids some of the drawbacks of popular machine learning techniques, has received a big endorsement of its approach. On Tuesday, the Cambridge, MA-based company announced a $20 million Series A funding round led by Intel Capital.
Data is often said to be the “new currency,” as it can serve significant value when companies unlock the arsenal of qualitative and quantitative information that they generate. But sifting through the noise and making sense of unstructured data is a challenge, which is where automation and artificial intelligence could help.
Gamalon wants to change the game when it comes to understanding text-based customer communications. Instead of using neural networks to learn about a vast corpus of information, the startup takes a different approach, putting the text in a database and building decision trees to very rapidly train the data to arrive at the required information. Today, it announced a $20 million Series A investment led by Intel Capital.
