Applied AI & Data Science

We help you unlock the promise of AI

In recent years there have been massive advances in machine learning and natural language processing - the main disciplines that we refer to when we say AI. We can help you unlock the value of these advances and understand how they can be applied to your business.

Our team includes PhD-level data scientists and engineers along with experienced product managers who can take an agile and commercially-sensitive approach to define clear experiments that can be run in order to determine the value of your data. If these early proof-of-concepts are successful then we can develop them further into full-scale operational products.

Cutting Edge Technology

Our team has published research in multiple areas including multiagent systems, machine learning, reinforcement learning, computational game theory, optimisation, mathematical modelling, distributed systems.

For machine learning and natural language processing we use mature open source tools including Spacy, NLTK, Tensorflow, Keras, Pytorch. These allow us to train models using your data in secure cloud environments like AWS and Azure with complete privacy.

We build micro-services that expose RESTful APIs for easy integration. Modern datastores provide a wide range of options, we work a lot with Elasticsearch, Postgres and MongoDB. Our web applications typically use a full-stack javascript/Node.js approach.

About Atchai

Established in 2010 and led by John Griffin and Dr Enrique Munoz de Cote, Atchai is a technology consultancy and development house based in London, UK. We create innovative digital products for Tier-1 VC-startups, enterprise and government. Our clients include organisations such as the Bank of England, NHS, Cabinet Office, and Unilever.

A Google for Government

Imagine a stack of paper 20,000 miles high in the centre of Whitehall. The volume of unstructured information held by government departments is vast.

We are applying state of the art machine learning and natural language processing techniques to the problem as part of an initiative to improve how government manages its digital information.

Our work has received positive coverage in The Times and has been described by Luke Sands (Head of Digital at Cabinet Office) as "the best use of AI I've seen within government".

A new way to analyse communities on Twitter

We’ve developed a novel social media intelligence tool that used machine learning and natural language processing to identify and segment communities, enabling social media marketers to deliver more targeted messaging.

Our approach used unsupervised machine learning to build and cluster graphs of social relationships and large NLP models to summarise content.

Our solution makes use of open source technologies including Python, Apache Spark and Elasticsearch in order to scale horizontally in the cloud and handle terabytes of data. The core technical approach has since been patented.

Data-driven decision making for a £1.3B development fund

What is the impact of COVID-19 on global instability? We have developed data insights tooling and strategy to address this question as well as many others for analysts across multiple government departments.

We successfully delivered operational dashboards and a proof of concept product that demonstrates the ability to extract actionable insights from unstructured data, along with a full report detailing long term strategy for building capacity.

An agile, knowledgeable and experienced team of developers with a strong focus on enterprise, data-driven technical solutions. I have employed them for a recent, very challenging project mining the group associativity of social media networks.

I was highly impressed by the agile way in which they approach the work and even more pleased with their ideas and technical input. I would recommend the team at Atchai to anyone who needs a competent solution for any data-oriented enterprise project.
