Data, especially unstructured data, abounds in every company. This is where enormous potential lies dormant, which can be leveraged with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). Based on its own experience, Helm & Nagel developed the artificial intelligence "Konfuzio" - a self-learning software. For this, the jury awarded the Digital Champions Award in the category "Digital Processes & Organization" and additionally the award as "Best Regional Champion".

Konfuzio as a product of Helm & Nagel GmbH

In 2019, Helm & Nagel GmbH launched its self-learning software Konfuzio, which reads, extracts and validates information in documents. Based on their previous experience, the founders developed Konfuzio with a vision in mind: Companies should be able to improve the existing IT infrastructure in an evolutionary way and at the same time revolutionize the technology for understanding and processing documents. This is exactly what Konfuzio offers through easy integration, self-learning adaptation and high scalability.

He also brings the Italian Dolce Vita to the team in Munich.

Ana Oliveira

Head of AI

With a high level of automation, even the smallest deviations generate large errors. Ana uses her knowledge from various AI projects to adapt our product Konfuzio precisely and quickly to new customer requirements. She combines NLP, computer vision and traditional machine learning algorithms and has been learning German since her arrival from Portugal.

Ben Trevett

AI Engineer

If the AI models understand the German text better than our native Englishman, Ben does not lean back and relax, but uses the time to learn German himself. As a GitHub pro, he not only outperforms some Instagram influencers with several thousand followers, but also trains multi-tenancy capable AI models whose capabilities go far beyond mere keywords and keyword search strategies.

Alicia Peng

Customer Success

From Roland Berger, via KPMG and BMW to Helm & Nagel GmbH. Thanks to Konfuzio, Alicia now uses technologies which until recently were considered new and consulting-intensive in her consulting work, to enable cognitive automation for clients every day. Without human-defined rules, Konfuzio's AI learns decisions, not only from Alicia.

Adrian Hayler

AI Engineer

Adrian finds a mathematical formula for every mundane and non-everyday problem. At Konfuzio, he takes care of the mathematical modeling of documents and unstructured texts. Each time a document is uploaded to the platform, models pre-trained by him achieve the best performance in extracting and validating the content.

Veronika Buchner

Customer Success

Vroni is our expert in banking and IT. As a trained banker, she knows the challenges of banks not only in IT, but also has a longstanding background in servicing demanding corporate clients and knowing their needs.

Nicolay Gerold

The company

Helm & Nagel GmbH was founded in 2016. After the implementation of several cross-industry projects until 2018, the founders used the latest methods from research and development in the field of AI and deep learning for the automatic processing of unstructured data. The team developed the software Konfuzio which meets the requirements of large and medium-sized companies in their daily business operations in terms of security, integrity and confidentiality.

The product

Founded in 2016, the growth start-up introduced Konfuzio in 2019, an AI SaaS platform for the automated processing of unstructured text data and documents. The solution focuses on operating 24/7 and the (re-)training of AI models in the cloud or on-premises. Customers especially from the banking & insurance industries are well represented. The resulting costs are linked to the usage-dependent duration of the AI and are particularly easy to plan through long-term contracts.
