What iscrack?

Kratt is an artificial intelligence system. Kratt is based on a software algorithm that is autonomous and capable of learning and performs tasks traditionally performed by humans. 

At the moment, rather narrow artificial intelligence (narrow AI) is common, which is expressed in the machine's ability to behave intelligently in one narrow field. At the same time, Kratt is capable of learning.

Typical uses of crates: 

  • generating recommendations

  • increasing the accuracy of actions / targeting

  • optimization and prioritization

  • discovery

  • recognition (such as voice, video and image)

  • communication bots (both text and speech)

  • forecasting / forecasting

  • robotic machines (automation of physical activity)

The promise of reducing or even eliminating time-consuming work is one of the reasons why crates are increasingly being talked about. Namely, using crates gives people the opportunity to focus more on activities that create added value and leave time-consuming, routine tasks to crates.

On the one hand, this increases productivity, and on the other hand, work-related costs decrease. This provides an opportunity to direct more resources to where the taxpayer would benefit the most from them. For example, it allows the state to direct more funds to all kinds of measures - including business support or social benefits. In addition, crates allow to replace human actions. This is essential in a country with a decreasing population like Estonia in order to alleviate the needs of the labor market.

Why "crat"?

We use a well-known figure from mythology, or the kratti, as a metaphor to simplify communication. As the old people know - if the problem needs to be solved, the Kratt will do the trick. Therefore, if artificial intelligence is something extremely complex and mysterious for a non-expert, then the Kratt familiar from fairy tales helps to understand it more easily with new possibilities. And of course we must make our kratis just and useful, and watch that they do no evil. That's the only way we can beat the crap: free time, peace of mind and a fairer society.
