Knowledge, Insight & Research to Prepare for an AI-Powered Future

Who We Are

We provide expertise grounded in extensive hands-on experience of improving business using AI, data & digital technology. We’re supported by a network of individuals & partners whom we call upon for extra capacity or specialist skills.

We Know What We’re Talking About &
We Walk the Talk

Anyone you work with from AI Prescience will have the right skills and experience for the tasks at hand. They will bring pragmatism, and relentless focus on results, quality & business value.

Our teams are comprised of experts with many years of experience in relevant disciplines. This includes working with and for technology heavyweights, such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Accenture, Infosys and Wipro. Our academic & professional education has been with institutions of equivalent academic stature in the UK, India and USA.

When we need to ramp up our teams, we call upon a global network of experienced data scientists, consultants, technical specialists and developers. We also build strong relationships with researchers, product vendors and complementary services firms.

Money Is Inevitably Important,
But Other Things Drive Us

We are privately owned and funded, with no external financial pressures. So our decisions & priorities aren’t driven or constrained by investors’ growth or margin targets.

Our only financial goal is to run a healthy, sustainable business. We believe how we behave when making our money is as important as how much we make. Among other things, this means treating our clients, employees, partners and suppliers with fairness, respect & integrity. You can find out more about what this means for you here.

We believe we’ll achieve our non-financial goals by being uncompromising about doing high quality work that delivers demonstrable business value. And being honest when we face problems.

But it’s not just any business we’re building – it’s an AI business. We’re all fascinated by the power of data, the evolution of technology and the emergence of artificial intelligence.

We are optimistic about the opportunities but concerned about the challenges – or rather, how people will respond to them. We’re in equal parts excited and apprehensive about what AI is doing to the world around us.

We’ve created AI Prescience because we’d like to play our small part in shaping how the world learns to use and live with Artificial Intelligence.
