Company description

Using advanced predictive Machine Learning algorithims, based on complex probabilistic models, Sherpa is able to learn and codify complex functions that allow it to infer and anticipate relevant information at any given time. Having the knowledge of different domains of information allows the identification and exploitation of latent relationships between the various elements present and users, without the need for them to interact with the system.
