MKAI's Human-Compatible AI Series is made possible by our partners


We are a tech company that specialises in data and information. We believe that companies who win at data will become their market leaders, so we built a software platform to make sure our clients are first across the line.

Put it like this: you know the way your company has a ton of data in clouds, lakes, networks, computers and devices? We’ve found a way to organise it and link it all together. The result is improved productivity, compliance and privacy. Which is fine. But things get really interesting when our data scientists plug their AI solutions into the platform to drive amazing insight and incredible automation. That’s when you get real competitive advantage. That’s when you start to win.

Our software platform is called InsightMaker, because that’s what it delivers. Simple. Usable. Insight.

It’s used by utility companies, government departments, banks, car manufacturers, and law firms – that’s the level we work at. And we haven’t come across an organisation yet that InsightMaker hasn’t been able to help.

Clients like our attitude – it’s a refreshing alternative to the big consultancies and system integrators. We’re faster and more flexible because we’re totally independent - so decisions are quick and solutions are developed at hyper-speed. To find out more visit

The MKAI community is an eclectic group that engages in open conversation about important themes in AI, such as; ethics, inclusion, responsibility, fairness, sustainability, breakthroughs, impact on society and people, inclusivity. Our strength comes from the fact that we come from different walks of life, with different expertise inside and outside of AI, giving us the diversity we think global AI needs to succeed. We don’t focus on being ‘right’. Instead we learn, listen, explore…always with kindness. AI needs all of us, and all of us need AI.
