- We are developing software to enable Question-Answering for Enterprise and Business Intelligence (BI) applications, using sophisticated Natural Language Processing / Computational Linguistics and Artificial Intelligence techniques. According to Gartner, Natural Language Question Answering systems - currently exemplified by non-enterprise products such as Google, Siri, and IBM Watson - could soon be destined for the Enterprise domain as well. Gartner predicted that 70 percent of leading BI vendors would have incorporated natural-language capabilities by 2016, likely using technologies developed externally rather than by the BI vendors themselves. While this of course presents an enormous potential for disruption in the $13-billion BI market, there has yet to be a pervasive product offering in this regard. This is likely due to the significant technical challenges of applying traditional Q&A and search technologies to the unique technical environments of Enterprise. Our company focuses on addressing these challenges, and developing the underlying technologies that would enable the Enterprise Question-Answering applications of the future. www.enterpriseqna.com

After the washer accepts your cycle you simply drop your load of laundry off at their front door which is when they will take it in, wash it, dry it and fold it all using their own time and resources. They then place the fresh laundry back at their doorstep and notify you through Laundrii in order for you to pick it up at your earliest convenience. After picking it up, you’ll leave a review and payment will be made automatically through Laundrii. No need to speak with the washer or make contact whatsoever, your laundry is clean without any work on your end and all you had to do was pay the price of a big mac meal.
