In collaboration with the Home Office, this London business used its artificial intelligence platform to create an algorithm to detect Isis propaganda, and so reducing terrorist attacks. It has completed more than 300 AI projects for customers including easyJet, Tesco and the BBC, and this year it worked on the government’s AI adoption review. Founded as ASI Data Science in 2014 by Marc Warner, 35, Angie Ma, 38, and Andrew Brookes, 35, the company rebranded in February. It has received more than £3m in backing from investors including Skype co-founder Jaan Tallinn, 47, and LocalGlobe. Sales hit £5.2m this year, and the company plans to double staff numbers by the end of the year and expand overseas.
