We use artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced analytics to help our clients deliver world-changing innovations.

We work with you to set direction, redefine what’s possible and make it reality. We don’t just apply state-of-the-art AI, we create it.

Setting direction

Working in partnership with business and policy leaders, we identify, respond to and capitalise on the disruptive potential of artificial intelligence.

Our unique combination of market insight and boundless technical depth provides clarity to chart the best course.

Our services span technology, partner and ecosystem landscaping, options assessment and investment case and transaction support.

Welcome to the Digital Greenhouse

Redefining what's possible

We enable data scientists and researchers to advance the state-of-the-art in deep learning and to unlock transformative capability and IP for their organisations.

This may be by applying the latest techniques to solve domain-specific challenges, validation and proof of concept of academic research or novel architecture development.

Perception

Real-world perception makes machines more valuable, through enhanced decisions and services. To make sense of a complex world requires layers of intelligence and rigorous training.

We use state-of-the-art data science and simulation to help you make sense of the world. From helping farmers detect crop health, to enabling healthcare professionals make more accurate diagnoses.

Decision

True intelligence and machine+human collaboration require those machines to make meaningful decisions and to take the ‘right’ action. This means rapidly predicting the future and choosing the best option in an uncertain world.

From helping to coordinate national infrastructure, through the creation of autonomous platforms, to reinforcement learning agents that explain their actions, we improve machine performance through intelligent decision making.

Edge

Delivering transformational products and services means taking artificial intelligence out of the data centre and into the real world.  Out here, constraints of size, cost, power and connectivity present new challenges that only the best can solve.

We redefine the possibilities of artificial intelligence at the Edge. From signal processing in billions of mobile phones, to AI in smart inhalers, we’ve generated billions of dollars of value for our clients, by creating and optimising world-leading silicon platforms.

Enterprise

Data is everywhere and when used effectively, can transform organisations and markets. But delivering on this promise requires us to unearth the right insights at exactly the right time.

Our team is a unique blend of data science, user experience, physics and device-to-cloud engineering.  We help clients create new data-driven service concepts to meet real-world needs.   

We can help you achieve the seemingly impossible

Pedigree & prowess

For decades, global corporations, governments and policy makers have turned to us to understand and harness the potential of data science and artificial intelligence.

From a heritage in Bayesian inference and hard, real-time signal processing, we’re now advancing the state-of-the-art in deep learning, creating world-leading sensing systems and pushing the limits of device performance.

Tech, tools & facilities

Digital Greenhouse

Digital Greenhouse

The Digital Greenhouse is our purpose-built AI research facility, specifically designed to discover, develop and test machine learning approaches in a fast, secure environment. The facility features an NVIDIA DGX-1 Deep Learning Supercomputer, a bank of machine learning computers, petabyte local storage and many teraflops of dedicated compute power.

AI infrastructure datalab

AI infrastructure

Our onsite compute infrastructure allows us to explore options, train and test models more rapidly and get better results.

 

We run petaflop-scale, containerised compute on site, with multiple NVIDIA DGX-1 Deep Learning Supercomputers and other GPU and FPGA-accelerated servers. This links to petabyte-scale local NetApp storage, project-specific cloud and our continuous integration systems.

RIC and roll: how to unlock the true value of O-RAN

24th Jun 2022

This whitepaper explores the critical role that the RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) plays in transforming the network and empowering operators to create and monetise distinctive service propositions. In other words, it’s the RIC that can unlock the true value of the “open” proposition of  Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN).
