Sensay Wins Wavemaker Award at Siemer Summit and TechWeek LA 100 Award

Sensay's bot platform for connecting humans through messengers to share life experience receives accolades from Siemer and TechWeek

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - November 29, 2016) - Sensay, the company known for its artificial intelligence messaging platform and chatbot network, has been awarded the Wavemaker Award for the Hottest Early Stage Startup at Siemer Summit and it is also a recipient of TechWeek LA 100 Award 2016. Sensay intends to be the AI powered connector for access to between one human to another for knowledge and experience.

Siemer Summit is an annual invite-only, two-day summit which gathers influential tech figures from around the globe for presentations, networking and relationship building. The award that Sensay was honored with this year, Wavemaker's Waverider Award, recognizes the most innovative and promising young companies and leaders. The winners each year are selected by an esteemed panel of Wavemaker Awards judges containing global industry veterans and representatives from top VC firms. This year, Sensay was honored among peers such as Thrive Market and Dollar Shave Club.

TechWeek 100 recognizes the top individuals and organizations, among them 50 Los Angeles based companies that "have made a significant impact on the technology and innovation ecosystem in which they operate." The list represents businesses ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies, as well as their leaders. Sensay was honored this year under the Innovator category along with companies like Dollar Shave Club, Soylent and Oculus.

As messengers are becoming the new operating system and bots are the new apps, Sensay straddles a very important area between helping you discover new things and new people. In September, Facebook's David Marcus announced that over 30,000 bots have been built since its opening of the Messenger app to bot developers in April. Companies like Google, Amazon, and Slack are also clamoring for the attention of bot developers onto their own platforms.

Founded in 2014, Sensay has now surpassed 55 million messages on the platform and also reached more than 1.5 million users, which exponentially increase the power of the community and network size.

"Sensay's recognition by these awards signifies its footprint as a trailblazer in the conversational age," said Ariel Jalali, CEO at Sensay. "As the first AI-backed peer-to-peer bot platform, Sensay is demolishing the idea that chatbots disappoint conversationally by demonstrating its value to anyone using the platform the first time they use it. 92 percent of people who used Sensay with needs receive real help from users like them."

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
