We’re all pretty good at reading people. But there’s only so much the human eye and brain can decipher. ZISHI Adaptive augments the human capability by fusing AI, machine learning and data science to uncover things that were previously invisible to see and even more impossible to understand. It looks below the waterline to uncover what makes a person tick, and more importantly predict what they’re going to do next.

TRANSFORMING CRITICAL PARTS OF OUR BUSINESS

Blending cognitive behaviour, personality traits and performance data for the first time, Adaptive continues to show us things we’ve never seen before. It’s helped de-risk our recruitment process by providing insights into candidates’ trading behaviours and market suitability before we hire, it’s accelerating our digital workforce initiative and more.

HOW ADAPTIVE CAN WORK FOR YOU

With all this data readily available, our Adaptive prediction engines can provide you with immediate insights based on subject areas we already know. But for a more detailed, in-depth analysis that uncovers the things you never thought were possible to know, we follow a process totally unique to you.

1.

We start by understanding what predictions would be most valuable to your business.

2.

Then we combine personality traits and cognitive behaviour with your own unique performance data to build bespoke, mission-oriented prediction models.

Finally, we offer Primary and Secondary predictions, in a detailed data DNA report.

PERSONALISED DATA DNA REPORT

The result of this unique process is a personalised data DNA report detailing the percentage that a candidate scores across 25 separate character traits. Starting with personality, the report moves through the spectrum of coping mechanisms, self-efficacy and cognitive traits.

“People talk about data being the new oil, but data is crude. What ZISHI have done with Adaptive is turn that crude data into something far more valuable than before.”

Professor Rose Lucken

Leading the Adaptive collaboration at UCL

Working with some of the world’s brightest minds in AI at University College London, we have developed Adaptive into a prediction tool that analyses data in new ways, far beyond our expectations. And the really exciting part is this is only the beginning.

MAKING EVERY CLICK COUNT

As a financial services business, recording every click that our traders make is part of our trading best practice. We’re using what is often seen as a negative and turning it into something far more valuable and usable.

OUR APPROACH TO ADAPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES

Adaptive’s journey so far has sparked many interesting conversations, not least the ethics of using AI to assist humans in making predictions. We have explored this and many other aspects of Adaptive’s development in a series of insightful podcasts.
