Technology

We marry accumulated know-how with AI to achieve skill and matching visualization .
Cognavi is a revolutionary system that suggests fields in which engineers are most capable and provides decision-making support based on objective indicators.

Skills organized into 4 trees

The system organizes both the skills that engineers have, and the skills needed by each company department, into 4 skill trees (products/parts, technology/tools, job type/process, academic discipline).

We have 85,000 registered technical terms available for selection (as of March 2019).
These are linked by 58,000 relational lines.

Our unprecedented display method encompasses all engineer skills in a structured and easily understandable way. It brings in skills that cannot be covered by only an interview or resume.

スキルツリー

What is a skill tree?

It is a tree that shows the skills and experience that an engineer has. In other words, the things that a resume seeks to convey.
Each of the registered skills can be rated on a 5 point proficiency scale.
As you level up as an engineer, your skill tree grows with you.

スキルツリー

To add a skill to your skill tree, just tap the technical term on your smartphone.
Easily register skills on the train as you commute (patent pending).
Of course, skills can be registered from a tablet or personal computer as well.

What is a technical tree?

Even within the same company, the work performed and skills needed vary by department.
Creating a database of skills for each department provides a greater chance of finding personnel that match not just the company, but the department itself.

テクニカルツリー

We are developing a function that allows you to upload technical documents such as design specifications and BOMs (Bills Of Materials) as data files. The function then automatically extracts new technical terms to grow the technical tree.

Expanding new possibilities through "relational lines"

Entering a skill in one of the 4 trees pulls up skills from the other 3 trees linked by relational lines.
For instance, the system may ask questions like, "If you can design internal components, maybe you also have 3D CAD skills?", or, "If you can read assembly drawings, can you also design automotive components?" In this way it helps engineers to unearth latent skills even they have not noticed. This allows them discover new expanded possibilities not bounded by industry or job type.

Matching score "COMPAS" and Matching Tree

This performs matching by superimposing an engineer's skill tree on the existing technical tree for each company department.
The result is analyzed using AI, and the numerical result, or matching score, is called COMPAS. The matching tree is displayed by highlighting only the parts that match.
COMPAS provides a comprehensive figure for judgment. In addition to this, the Matching Tree allows you to see which skills match up. This enables decisions to be made based on objective indicators, such as to what degree engineers have the skills deemed important.

Matching Map

The COMPAS matching score is displayed on what is known as a matching map.

The engineer's portal page…
shows the COMPAS score for departments within a commutable area centered on their home.

The company representative's portal page…
shows the COMPAS score for engineers living within a commutable area centered on the company.

This provides visualization for those who want to work near home out of consideration for work-life balance.

"SIDUS" Personality Analysis

This function is made possible by IBM Watson Personality Insight.
It can analyze the words used in reports and emails written by an engineer and reveal that person's personality and tendencies via a chart format.
