IRIS is the best online platform to keep vehicle homologation professionals up to date with existing and new worldwide regulatory guidelines

The IRIS Regulatory Knowledge Base is evolving towards a new powerful tool developed with Machine Learning capable of creating predictive models and thus able to anticipate, predict and make decisions regarding customer preferences.

Artificial Intelligence will be integrated into the customer portal, which will bring together all the services hired, so that without the user needing to perform any type of search, the machine itself will suggest information of interest according to the study of the user’s preferences.

Also, a powerful search engine by concepts will be integrated to allow the user to search by free-text search. This new powerful search engine will search through all the documents of the IRIS Services hired in order to retrieve very accurate results and successfully answer the customer's query.

This new smart tool allows IRIS to generate a deep flow of knowledge, enabling IDIADA to be at the forefront of cutting-edge innovation in Knowledge Management.
