Who is AskFrank?

Our AI-based search assistant AskFrank has been developed in cooperation with ML expert Dr. Pieter Buteneers (Advisor and Keynote Speaker at our Machine Learning Conference).

The algorithm behind AskFrank is based on the latest technological breakthroughs in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning such as BERT and GPT3 and has been specifically trained to understand questions and find relevant answers.

What Does AskFrank Do?

AskFrank processes natural language, efficiently and quickly combs the devmio database with its thousands of entries to provide you with the right answers to your specific questions.

To make use of Frank’s capabilities, simply type in your question on the search bar at the top of any devmio page and watch Frank find answers to your questions!

The Story of AskFrank

AskFrank’s developer, Dr. Pieter Buteneers, likes to give his algorithms names. The algorithm behind AskFrank is called Frank, because according to the dictionary, Frank means “open, direct, honest” and AskFrank provides exactly this kind of answers to your questions.

As luck would have it, our COO is also named Frank and a common phrase among us colleagues for various questions is “Ask Frank!” – and so AskFrank was born.
