    Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world ~ Nelson Mandela

     

    We believe education is an infinite game, best played in teams. At the beginning of every engagement we think big, start small and use systems to learn fast. Learning is at the heart of our platform and is the alpha and omega of all our processes. It's built to facilitate learning about people, problems, process and valuable solutions.

    I believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn’t been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn’t have been lucky ~ Oprah Winfrey

    BUILD

    The pursuit of beauty. The word is hard to articulate. As soon as you open your moth, it flies off, like a bird of paradise. Beauty can not be caught, but we are obliged to reach for it. Beauty is not neutral; pursuing it is a political act. Building is a grand act, a gesture toward peace, the opposite of destruction ~ Renzo Piano

  • Our vision

    The pursuit of economies of scale defined our past. Economies of learning will define our future. 

    Create a better future

    Redefining the relationship between people, our products and our planet.

    We see a better future, because we aim to create it collaboratively.

    We're Oxford AI and our mission is to redefine the relationship between, humans, machines and our world. Our purpose is to make progress probable, advancements achievable and breakthroughs believable.

    Safety + Connection + Learning = Radical Innovation

    Sow, grow, flow.

    Created in Oxford – a the UK's deep learning and NLP hub – OXFORD AI launched with a unique vision: to democratize AI with a collaborative model for commercializing cutting-edge research.

     

    From the start, we’ve made AI accessible. AI that scales. And AI that can be trusted.

     

    This unique approach is a win-win amongst AI researchers who want to stay in academia as well as the companies whose data and challenges they wanted access to.

     

    Our network spans academia, startups, scale-ups and the biggest, most dynamic multi-nationals, government organizations and NGO's. The best product and service development processes usually start small and slow: sowing the idea in the minds of a small core team. If momentum is building we bring the right resources to stimulate effective growth. And as the product matures, our focus moves to reaching and maintaining flow.

    Our future depends on what we do today

    Plan better. Do better. Check better. Learn better.

    Throughout the ages, collaboration and the use of our collective intelligence have solved our toughest problems and led to our greatest advancements. We're with Margaret Mead:

     

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

     

    We also believe that we are facing new challenges of unprecedented complexity and severity, and that if we are to survive and truly thrive, we must master some new tools.

     

    With artifical intelligence we are transforming the way people collaborate — not just with each other, but with the machines that we make, enabling us to expand our collective intelligence.

    Now, human and machine — people and AI — are working together to achieve our most ambitious goals.

    AI made real

    Things should be made as simple as possible—but no simpler.

    Artificial intelligence is the most important technology of our age, but it is valuable only when it is applied in the real world – enhancing products, improving services and saving lives.

     

    To make AI real we help organisations work out what they could do with AI, and then help to do it. This requires three things: the right strategy, the right skills and the right software. We help with all three.

  • Our foundation

    Oxford.ai was founded in 2017 by Seb, Omer and Sung. The business started out with the fellowship to train and transition PhD and postdoc scientists into professional data scientists. Fellows would work on eight-week real world projects with a range of companies. While collaborating with these companies we were asked to work on bigger and bigger projects, so we developed our services to deliver professional data science strategy, software and skills training. In 2019, recognising the need for bespoke software, we built Faculty Platform to speed up AI deployment and increase the transparency and oversight over machine learning models.

     

    The Oxford AI Network now spans many of the world's most experienced AI and ML specialists, able to support any organisation to make AI real.
