At the beginning of the year, Qlik introduced the Cognitive Engine, a feature that generates chart automatically based on the input/loaded data into Qlik Sense.
When Qlik Core was introduced, the user interface (UI) consisted of drag and drop features, where you would drag and drop field(s) to the design canvas, and suggestions of the best visualisations using the field(s) selected were generated. This feature encompasses the true meaning of what "being cognitive" is all about - commonly associated with: the act or process of knowing, thinking and/or understanding - these processes all involve conscious activity, as does artifical intelligence (AI).

Insight tooltip, this shows
Upon clicking on the
Insight button, the Qlik Core engine functionality is activated, displaying a blank canvas.

Overall, it is safe to say that this new interactive Insights feature within Qlik Sense is the start of the revolutionisation of data analysis. It is safe to say that Qlik Sense is something to watch out for in the BI sphere and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
