Databricks acquires Einblick to drive data and AI innovation

Databricks has acquired Einblick – a German startup comprised of experts in Machine Learning, Human-Computer Interaction, and Natural Language Processing. The Einblick team has spent the last four years pioneering state-of-the-art techniques for translating natural language questions into the code, charts and models needed to generate insights.

The next wave of data tools must understand more than general language to work well, they need to understand the jargon and semantic information specific to each company. By joining forces with Databricks, the ideas behind Einblick can be more powerfully extended through deep integration with the underlying data catalogue and, in particular, Databricks’ Data Intelligence Platform. Data Intelligence helps users simply ask questions of their data platform and get detailed and high-quality answers.

The Einblick Story

Einblick’s approach of integrating AI directly into the authoring surface enables users to seamlessly transform their thoughts into comprehensive data workflows. The Einblick team built a sophisticated multi-step architecture that processes raw user input, enhances it with relevant contextual information, and breaks it into smaller solvable chunks using SQL, Python, and higher level logical operators. They’ve been refining these AI systems and user experiences for several years and Databricks is excited to combine this work with industry leading data platform capabilities as a part of its vision of Data Intelligence.

"When we founded Einblick, our goal was to empower companies to do more with data, by creating the easiest and most collaborative data platform. Today marks a significant milestone as we join forces with Databricks to further our mission. I am thrilled to embark on this new journey with a company whose mission is to simplify and democratise data and AI." — Emanuel Zgraggen, CEO and co-founder of Einblick

What’s Next

“We’re thrilled to welcome Emanuel, Philipp and the talented Einblick team to Databricks. Like us, they believe that organisations need to deeply leverage data and AI to be successful in this new age. We look forward to incorporating Einblick's innovative, AI-native approach directly into the Databricks platform, enabling organisations to democratise data intelligence and create the next generation of data and AI applications with quality, speed and agility,” – Ali Ghodsi, CEO and Co-Founder, Databricks
