The Levity platform is designed to allow “knowledge workers” to automate repetitive and manual parts of their job without using code
Spotted: There are a number of companies working to allow companies to use AI in their business without the need for coding. One, Levity, has recently released a platform that allows companies to easily incorporate AI into their business processes. Levity is specifically designed to allow “knowledge workers” to automate repetitive and manual parts of their job without using code.
According to the company, “the platform allows users to build AI-powered tools to recognize and classify documents, images or text by simply dropping examples of their data into the system and training custom AI solutions.” These solutions can then be integrated with other tools, such as email and Slack. It is designed so that companies can automate tasks without the need for a data science team and software integration experts.
Using Levity, businesses can easily build AI solutions that are tailored to their specific needs. For example, a customer service team could build a system to automatically tag emails and support tickets, whether their main issue is around payment or delivery, etc. Instead of spending time opening and categorising emails manually, workers can then focus on solving the problems.
Levity’s co-founder and CTO, Thilo Hüllmann, explains that “Building AI tools traditionally required many repetitive steps: Collect, label, and store unstructured data, train a model in the cloud, test and improve, put it in production, and try to manage prediction quality on the fly. We designed Levity to be able to handle all of this in the background, so users don’t need dedicated AI engineers and can focus on creating seamless workflows that integrate with all other business software they use without ever having to write a single line of code.”
Every week seems to bring a new innovation in AI – at Springwise, we have recently featured uses for AI as diverse as fashion cataloguing and in bioscience. Companies like Levity, however, are working to make AI accessible for use in ordinary business processes, with the goal of freeing workers for more creative tasks.
