We back founders building a more perceptive world - harnessing new forms of software-based intelligence to transform the entire economy
Artificial intelligence is at an inflection point. Machine learning is permeating industries, touching almost every area of our lives. Home to a significant share of the global talent (Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, UCL, ETH, Inria), Europe is at the forefront of a new kind of software. We're excited by founding teams building commercial applications tightly coupled to a proprietary data model either to discover novel insights, or to automate routine work: both with a clear ROI.
Recently we've spent time researching the 'MLOps' tool layer, the picks and shovels as all companies scramble for perceptual gold, especially at the junction of privacy and explainability. We also see great opportunity in applications enabled by new architectures for decentralized training and inference.
Finally, we're excited by the power of machine intelligence to upend regulated and physical environments as they come online; in the lab, in the clinic, in the courtroom, the potential impact on human life is tremendous.
