The promise

A transformative technology with limitless potential… and the potency to disrupt every conceivable sector sooner rather than later.

Unquestionably, AI-powered technology will be pivotal in driving and defining your next generation of services. Because when we create machines that perceive and think for themselves, everything changes.  

The challenge

The interconnected technologies of AI are progressing rapidly. Yet many cutting-edge developments have yet to make the leap from the research lab to practical applications. When they do, the engineering and business processes they support will need to be rethought.   

Winners in the AI race will require specialist expertise to understand, adapt and deploy Artificial Intelligence in products and services that create true commercial and societal value. Beyond that, there is a pressing need to engage with policy makers to ensure widespread responsible governance of AI.   

What's next?

Autonomous vehicles 

The journey to vehicle autonomy

The journey to vehicle autonomy is long and complex. A group of visionary companies are addressing the holistic challenges that will lead to L5.

Today we’re engaged in the big leap from L2 to L3, or in some cases from L2 to L4, in which all safety-critical functions are performed by the vehicle. We expect a gradual roll out of L3/L4 starting in 2022, where an increasing number of autonomous vehicles (AVs) will exist on our roads or industrial areas.

We are developing critical technology in areas including simulation, sensor development, machine vision and perception, that marrying technology decision-making with transparency and ethics.  

AI-powered healthcare

Earlier diagnosis, treatment & improved patient outcomes

The current global healthcare model is unsustainable. Economic and demographic pressures on care systems are being exacerbated by the challenge of discovering and delivering new medicines. AI will be at the heart of the solution, transforming service delivery with improved efficiency and personalization.

Right now, we’re working to transform the accuracy, relevance and timeliness of information physicians can access across the care pathway, from clinical trials and surgery to medication adherence. It promises earlier diagnosis and treatment, improved outcome prediction and, ultimately, the saving of lives.  

We use AI to help clients achieve the seemingly impossible  

Beyond imagination

With AI techniques, tools and hardware, machines are doing things we never thought possible. But really, we’ve barely begun. The blistering pace of change means that AI will soon be capable of things we can’t yet even imagine.

We’re tracking the hidden developments from academia, research labs and the wider AI sphere. Our intention is to identify and understand those most likely to make the leap to practical, value-creating innovation. Ultimately, this work will enable you to develop the AI-powered products, services and experiences that will transform how we live and the world around us.

Smart vision for farming – breaking AI out of the datacentre

15th Oct 2019

As pressures increase on the food supply chain, the importance of predictable yields increases. Generally, the better informed growers are, the better the price they can potentially obtain. However, manual counts struggle...

Firm foundations

To capture the potential of AI, there are a host of new basics to get right. Maintaining privacy, transparency and building trust; creating effective AI engineering teams and validating AI for critical applications are just a few. These issues are causing leaders to question some well-understood business processes and to develop entirely new ones.

Commercial teams, technologists and policy makers will need to work together to ensure efficient and responsible AI delivery and to both earn and build public trust. Today, we’re working with policy makers and business leaders to do just that. 

Is your AI responsible? Five questions to ask yourself

As the debate moves on – and as we continue to learn from real-world deployments rather than abstract research – it seems like a good time to revisit our core principles for responsible AI. What should we be considering when we develop and deploy AI?    

Ofcom: use of AI online content moderation

A key theme to the debate about harmful internet material is how automated approaches driven by AI can enhance content moderation. These approaches may have implications for our future use, and attitudes towards, online communication. 
By examining online use and attitudes, our report commissioned by the UK regularity Authority (Ofcom), helps widen the debate on the risks we all face.
