Powered by the Aera Decision Cloud™, Cognitive Skills provide real-time insight, recommendations and predictions. Cognitive Skills deliver prepackaged content, logic, and interactions that augment and automate business decisions.
Aera Cognitive Skills™ are composable capabilities that extend the Aera Decision Cloud™ to address specific use cases that benefit from improved decision making. These capabilities work by giving contextual recommendations while maintaining full transparency - continuously measuring and learning from both anticipated and actual decision performance. Full transparency leads to trust in automated decisions - a requirement for systemic change.
Each Skill is a self-contained solution for a particular business problem with the following capabilities:
- Specific data crawlers needed to aggregate and harmonize information from required systems and put it in a common data model.
- Analytics calculations, machine learning models, and simulation models needed for the use case.
- Digitized decision flow and logic, including business rules and direct user interaction if needed.
- Logic needed to execute decisions back to target systems.
