Former Monzo and Revolut Head of Product, Ilya Vorobiev, launches The Brain to help scaling companies extract and analyse data using conversational AI
London, April 25th 2023, 9am GMT: The Brain, the AI-powered, no-code business intelligence platform built by ex-Revolut employees, has launched today, offering its early access program to startups and scaling companies. The platform, which will be available to founders and product leads at emerging technology companies, eliminates the need for code or dashboards in data analysis. Instead, allowing users to query data sets using a chatbot and importantly, without needing to know SQL. Users can then leverage this data to solve complex problems more efficiently and drive growth.
Despite the advancement of BI tools in the past 30 years, operating them still demands a high level of domain expertise, and accurately collecting and displaying actionable data insights is a bottleneck for businesses that slows down decision-making. For many data teams, this creates a time sink that sees developers burn 30-50% of their time on mundane tasks that can instead be tackled through AI. For companies with ten or more data specialists, spending $500k a year or more, is a routine.
A recent surge in emerging startups such as Seek.AI, Hex.tech, UseChannel, are continuing to break new ground and develop on traditional tools like Tableau and Looker. Among these contenders, The Brain, led by ex-Monzo and Revolut Head of Product, Ilya Vorobiev, has made remarkable progress despite the company’s recent entry into the market.
Vorobiev, who spent 15 years in engineering, pre-sales, marketing, and leadership roles at Revolut and Monzo assembled his expert team and created The Brain after experiencing his customers’ challenges first hand – and the deep need for an evolution in data analysis.
“We walked in our customers’ shoes for so long, experiencing the pain of using BI tools to gather data on things like customer logs, user entries and hundreds of hours of customer conversations. It was logical for us to tackle this problem when advancements in AI made it a real possibility.” Vorbiev commented. “We created a no-code product that leverages AI to fine-tune customised solutions; enabling senior leaders in companies to triage data in a way that’s tailored to their specific needs. Our platform strives not only to provide advanced analytics tools but to unlock the full potential of users, empowering them to move faster and deliver higher quality results. Our hands-on, personalised approach for our pilot customers reflects our commitment to contribute meaningfully to the community and see others succeed.”
The Brain’s plug-and-play features allow almost anyone to set up complex analyses without requiring code or documentation. While the AI is fine-tuned to provide customised solutions tailored to specific data requirements, the platform seamlessly integrates with almost any existing SQL-based database, charging customers on a pay-as-you-go basis.
