One of the largest IT events in Iceland is the annual UT Messa (IT Conference) where everybody who’s anybody in Icelandic IT comes together to discuss how technology is touching every aspect of our daily life.
Our award winning VP of Operations Intelligence, Helgi Helgason, is sharing his extensive experience and deep understanding in a presentation on the use of artificial intelligence to optimize business operations. We recommend you catch his talk if you are truly interested in machine learning or other aspects of AI. The full program is here.
Helgi did the presentation in Icelandic, a recording can be found here.
Activity Stream just signed an agreement with electricity monitoring system experts eTactica. Activity Stream and the industry specific solution AS for Utilities will help users of eTactica’s energy monitoring hardware to visualize complex time series and historical data to provide valuable insights based on patterns detected in energy consumption.
The companies will further develop an artificial intelligence based functionality to help utilities provide customers with a deeper understanding of use, options to save energy, cut the cost of maintenance and prevent failure. The granularity of the information and the operational insights enable utilities to offer their customers a way to go green by decreasing their carbon footprint, schedule preventive maintenance and discover ways to decrease consumption.
We are truly delighted to attend next year’s INTIX conference. We feel this is really the place to be so we are packing our bags and heading to New Orleans in January and would love to meet up with US-based ticketing companies, venue operators and promoters in particular, for a demonstration of the Activity Stream operations intelligence platform and the associated AS for Live Entertainment industry specific solution.
Our sales team is busy setting up meetings with potential partners so if you are an interested ticketing professional, feel freeto book a meeting, a demo or both.
It is a leap for most of us to even start thinking about Artificial intelligence in operations and services. But we have borrowed a great phrase from a movie and now refer to what we do as just basic rocket science. While we strongly feel that AI is changing everything, including the business of ticketing, we are, as we expected, experience some resistance. Einar Saevarsson, our CEO/Co-founder, gave a presentation at the Ticketing Technology Forum 2016 about collecting, enriching, visualizing and continuously analyzing data to creating actionable insights empowering an organization to make a difference for its customers.
The Activity Stream journey dating back to early 2013 has been incredible so far. Our effort to further develop our AI based product and include features based on valuable insights from trial users does call for more hands on deck. We are now at a time in our corporate growth where we need to double the number of employees as soon as possible to make sure we can deliver on our promise to angel customers and beta users. By end of summer, we added ten new positions both in our Copenhagen sales & Customer Success office and at the development center in Iceland.
We are humble to see how both AI and the company effort are gaining traction with people of the highest caliber who bring a wealth of experience to the project we hope to catapult even further in the coming months. Our sales efforts are taking off and although a bit behind, we feel we will be able to ship the first release of Activity Stream by end of September this year.
