A cross-functional swat team

We are a friendly, independent collective of scientists, strategists, and engineers.

Helping companies create massive value

We band together for our common passion; to build smart products and transform companies with AI and ML.

Why we do it

We live and breathe the bleeding edge; our mantra is that every company, large or small, can do the same.

Our offering

Our battle-tested four phase approach helps companies anywhere on the AI maturity spectrum.

Strategize

Our team of ex-BCG data science strategists will benchmark your existing capabilities. Through this, we will emerge with a list of use cases (each with a sequenced roadmap and deliverables schedule) that you can rank order and allocate real dollars and headcount to.

Learn

Our team of machine, deep, and reinforcement learning experts will assimilate your product requirements and prototype the right algorithms and models via robust scientific inquiry and experimentation.

Integrate

We work with your in-house engineers to have a model that can be used and deployed within your stack. Our team of PM's and machine learning engineers will create a standalone script, Docker container, model dashboard, or API.

Transform

Through the course of our work, we help close organizational gaps, identify key technical and managerial hires, and impart an agile process to ensure proper governance and change management.

We've done this before

We craft practical solutions to tough problems in any industry and function.
Our models and data pipelines have sustainably generated billions of dollars.
