Unique platform promises profitable path to data monetization in the digital economy.

The 13th Annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium has announced Rulex Analytics as one of ten Finalists selected for the 2016 Innovation Showcase, as its Rulex cognitive machine learning platform represents strategic value and innovation to the digital economy. Rulex will receive key exposure to many of the world’s most creative and influential IT executives at the Symposium on May 18, 2016.

“We are delighted to receive this opportunity to share our innovation with the forward-looking folks at this esteemed event,” said Andrea Ridi, Rulex CEO and co-founder, “They are the ones who understand the business value and competitive power of new ideas, thoughtfully executed,” he added, concluding, “We also heartily congratulate our fellow Finalists sharing this great honor.”

Based on academic and government research by the company founders, Rulex is a machine learning software platform that uses cognitive, not computational, techniques to extract readable business logic, not black box calculations, from Big Data, and to make fast distributed predictions at the edge of the network. Rulex gives business and data experts the tools they need for rapidly monetizing enterprise, commercial, social, and IoT data, with lower cost and regulatory risk than other approaches.

“We are thrilled to invite these top 10 companies to our 2016 Innovation Showcase,” said Anton Teodorescu, Co-Chair of the Innovation Showcase. “Their technologies are leading edge, and will be vital to empowering the future digital economy.”

After careful consideration, the Innovation Showcase Judges evaluated and selected Rulex for this honor based on four important criteria:

  • Actively provides a B2B or B2C enterprise IT solution product to the market;
  • Is a startup with less than $10 million in 2015 revenues
  • Is selling enterprise IT solutions to CIOs or corporate IT departments; and
  • Shows innovation and/or strategic value with high potential impact on the top and/or bottom lines.
