Got data? If so, we’re ready to help you benefit from AI. 

The Ikigai platform unlocks the power of generative AI for tabular data. We enable business users to connect disparate data, leverage no-code AI/ML, and build enterprise-wide AI apps in just a few clicks. Ikigai is built on top of its three proprietary foundation blocks developed from years of MIT research - aiMatch, for data reconciliation, aiCast, for prediction, and aiPlan, for scenario planning and optimization. Our platform enables Expert-in-The-Loop (EiTL) for model reinforcement learning and refinement, at scale.
Rooted in academia, Ikigai also offers unmatched educational support that upskills workforces and transforms organizations into AI-driven ones. Ikigai Academy has already trained over 6000 students from 90+ countries on topics like “No Code AI” and “Time Series Forecasting”. 

What Teams Love About Ikigai

Vice President @ Spirit
on aiCast
Our goal is to have as accurate a forecast as possible… which is why we love working with Ikigai’s aiCast. It was producing results better than our existing ML solution out of the box.
Supply Chain Strategist @ Quiet
on aiPlan
We were skeptical until we fed our real data into Ikigai’s aiCast and aiPlan. The results are too good to ignore.
Head of Architecture @ HSBC
on aiCast
I can’t believe how fast Ikigai’s model was learning with human in the loop. Going in I didn’t think this was possible.
Quality Assurance Leader @ Medica
on aiMatch
I can’t believe how effective aiMatch was at picking up claims issues that we would otherwise have to do manually.
Director Data Scientist @ KPMG
on aiPlan
We’re blown away. Ikigai made scaling models to large data and deployment so easy…we were able to quickly deploy and iterate on our AI app using just one platform
