We have exclusively partnered with this fantastic bunch who are leading the charge in artificial intelligence solutions for industry.
The team are building an industrial intelligence platform that is all about collecting industrial data from various assets. Who unleash the necessary analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning or cognitive work to predict equipment failures, streamline production processes and uncover the hidden trends in production processes.
They’re a creative and ambitious bunch of engineers, hackers and entrepreneurs who love building awesome technology that can make a difference. With skills that range from robotics and AI to industrial manufacturing and software engineering with a team who have worked for some of the largest organisations in these fields including Google, Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Morgan Stanley and Ansys just to mention a few.
They’ve got one clear vision and are using all the tricks in the book to get there. I love the fact that they are highly collaborative, abuse the whiteboards, ask a lot of questions and are continuously trying to simplify and clarify the steps needed to achieve their goals. They like to properly plan before executing, create engineering design documents, architecture models, prototype and only begin implementing once they reach consensus. They are advocates of embrace change, adapt as they walk the path and strive to grow the team by hiring better, smarter people who love good and bad jokes.
