Pienso: The Democratization of Machine Learning

By Vic Singh, Founding General Partner, Eniac Ventures

Eniac is excited to lead Pienso’s seed round with our friends at SoftTech. Founded by seasoned MIT graduates, Birago Jones and Karthik Dinakar, Pienso is making machine learning accessible to enterprise domain experts who don’t have the requisite data science experience. As corporations heavily invest in big data lake initiatives to glean insights into their business, domain experts find it challenging to communicate their requirements to data scientists, often times those requirements get lost in translation.

Enter Pienso, a startup that has built a proprietary method called Lensing which uses machine learning to cluster data through an intuitive UI that domain experts (researchers at pharma companies, analysts at energy corporations, intelligence analysts etc.) can access directly to make sense of the copious data across the enterprise.
