What is a CoBot?

Decision analytics is the next step after data analytics, and a new design method and systems architecture is required for it. The decision analytics system must link analytics insights into a decision cycle through the stages from advice to adaptation. Rapid adaptation requires an architecture of modules strung together in decision cycles. Each module must operate autonomously and collaboratively. So we created the CoBot System that runs as a set of collaborative bots. A "bot” is an autonomous machine, a CoBot is a collaborative bot.

Each CoBot is focused on one decision point, so it can be rapidly designed and deployed, and is also easy to maintain and update. The collection of CoBots is loosely coupled and acts as an enterprise-class system to support an entire business or a subset such as a function or a business unit. A system of CoBots has the advantage of both large-scale coordination, rapid modular adaptability, and security. We use fast, scalable, reliable, extensible and maintainable technology to make CoBots.

 

This is a schematic for a CoBot:

We use fast, scalable, reliable, extensible and maintainable technology to make CoBots.

  • Big Data and Fast Data (near real-time)
  • Complex analytics, data transformation and visualization
  • In-premise, cloud, and hosted deployments
