Delivering AI solutions from initial research, through to prototyping, validating ideas and accelerating time-to-value.

From image classification prototypes to identify stock for a leading supermarket product retailer, to proof of concepts for predictive maintenance for a global industrial manufacturer. We provide end-to-end AI research and prototyping services to help organisations validate ideas and make informed decisions on AI investments.

With extensive research expertise across industries, we evaluate use cases, data readiness and requirements to determine where AI can solve problems, whilst assessing performance, value and feasibility.

Delivering full lifecycle AI prototyping services - from research and analysis to prototype building, user testing and reporting.

We begin every engagement by gaining a thorough understanding of your needs and objectives. Our analysts evaluate use cases, data quality and project feasibility to determine where AI aligns to both short and long term goals. Working closely with stakeholders, we rapidly build prototypes to validate assumptions, refine requirements and identify any gaps or challenges.

We leverage leading AI cloud services like Azure Machine Learning and AWS Bedrock to accelerate prototyping across use cases. With pre-built models, APIs and infrastructure, AI cloud services enable rapid prototyping to validate concepts within days to weeks, for use cases such as sentiment analysis, image detection and anomaly detection.

With user feedback and benchmarking, we deliver actionable reports outlining benefits, limitations, lessons learned and recommendations on next steps. Enabling organisations to make informed, de-risked decisions on investing in AI and machine learning to solve problems and deliver new opportunities.

We rapidly build prototypes across a variety AI domains and capability areas that solve high-value business problems. Including computer vision models for areas like image recognition and video analytics, natural language processing for use cases like chatbots and text analytics, predictive modelling for forecasting and recommendations, as well as planning and scheduling optimisation and anomaly detection algorithms.

By prototyping across capability spaces, we provide the coverage needed to validate AI applicability for the diverse challenges and potential opportunities across organisations.
