About Cognitive Space

BOARD HTML5 Brings business into the Cognitive Space.

Cognitive technologies, storytelling, in-context collaboration, and a cutting edge user-interface augment business users’ capabilities to unleash new intelligence from data and instantly translate insights into action.

BOARD HTML5 drastically improves the way people interact with data, making it natural, super-easy and, to some extent, similar to an interaction amongst human beings.  

The new Search Analytics capability allows Business users with zero technical knowledge to just type in their questions and get back immediate business answers in the form of a report.

The new Natural Language Recognition (NLR) capabilities make it possible to verbally pose questions to BOARD without any typing, and get back a report that is automatically integrated with vocal and written narratives, thanks to the Advanced Natural Language Generation (Advanced NLG) function.
