We advocate co-development where possible and ensure maximum knowledge transfer so you can build your in-house capabilities over time.

Our platform enables...

Natural language processing
A field that specialises in the interaction between humans and language and the development of computational models to process and understand large amounts of textual data.
Machine Learning
Development of computational models that can learn and improve from data, without being explicitly programmed.
Data analytics
The general scientific methods and processes of extracting knowledge and insight from data.
Computer vision

Democratising AI

We believe in democratising AI by making it available to the many, not the few.

Much of the world’s top AI talent is locked away in universities and major tech corporations, but thousands of other businesses can also benefit from applied AI.

We believe in democratising AI by making it available to the many, not the few.

Building an internal AI capability is time-consuming, high risk and expensive. Catalyst AI removes these barriers and delivers you the benefits of AI in the shortest possible time.
