We help companies experience the full benefits of AI by
achieving Transparency, Trust, and Truth.


Confidence In AI

Modern business processes require leveraging data-driven decisions at operationally efficient levels. As such, businesses are undergoing rapid change and increasing investment in digital transformation. Organizations are replacing human driven choices with AI/ML models that are automating more and more of these choices and making decisions for humans. The question is, does this elevate or reduce risk? With limited human intervention, company stakeholders have to trust that AI-powered processes are fulfilling their designed responsibilities.

Trust! This fundamental principle struck a chord with Konfer’s founders, thus initiating the Konfer journey. How do you ensure that stakeholders – customers, product teams, legal, compliance, security and marketing – can trust the transformative AI-powered solutions that are now a critical and essential part of an organization’s business?

Konfer’s founders realized that Trust in AI can be achieved by ensuring Transparency, where all actions are understood identically by involved parties. Transparency creates Trust; Trust generates Confidence. And Trust is also the foundation for responsible and ethical AI. Confidence happens when stakeholders have complete understanding of the AI process. Konfer generates the knowledge graph needed for stakeholders to transparently map, measure and manage these digital initiatives.
