We deliver cutting-edge AI consultancy and capabilities for clients globally.

Our AI Transformation Launchpad

We’ve helped analyse and test AI and machine learning approaches in 100+ projects across multiple sectors. We have developed robust processes for combining conceptual business challenges with historical data to transform them into applied machine learning models that solve real problems for our customers.

filament_AI_scoping_inception

Inception and Scoping

Most AI projects begin as an idea, often inspired by insights gleaned by our customers based on the patterns they see in their business. In this crucial early stage we work collaboratively with our customers to understand their hypothesis and to identify additional data in their business that could support it. We also discuss any functional software requirements for the prototype and our UX design team works together with the customer to design wireframes that lay out how the ML application will work.

Data Collection

Once an idea is scoped out, we work with the client to gather the relevant datasets to test their hypothesis. We employ a combination of data analysis best practices and software engineering know-how to store data in the right format. We have a number of complementary tools such as the Filament Smart Web Scraper, as well as public and proprietary datasets, at our disposal that can be used to bolster our clients’ use cases and strengthen the predictive power of the models we create.

Data Processing

Next, we employ our applied statisticians, natural language processing experts or computer vision specialists to analyse and understand the datasets we have collected. We merge complementary datasets, remove bias and convert text and images into formats that machine learning models can understand.

filament_AI_modelling_evaluation

Modelling & Evaluation

Having discussed our clients’ requirements, our machine learning specialists will train and evaluate a series of machine learning models using the prepared datasets. These models will be benchmarked against each other in order to identify models that work well for specific business problems. We start with simpler tried and tested machine learning models and iterate towards more complex power-hungry deep learning models if necessary. We provide a full report detailing the approaches taken and our recommended approach.

filament_AI_application_development

Application Development

Once we’ve chosen an effective model, we start building the business application around it. This is a group effort involving our software engineers, ML engineers, devops engineers and quality assurance specialists to ensure that the application we build proves that the concept we want to test is sound..

filament_AI_handover

Handover & Education

Once the application is built, we hand over the application and the model to the customer. We then take the time to help them understand what we’ve built, the approach we’ve taken and provide recommended next steps.


Accelerating delivery with the Filament AI Suite

Our comprehensive suite of tools solve many of the key challenges businesses typically face when developing AI solutions. We use these tools to help us deliver more efficiently for our clients.

We have solutions that help with processing data and training and rapidly deploying models – all trained by our data science team – as scalable APIs, ready for use in real-world applications. We also have tooling that allows us to create complex workflows, pulling together a number of different machine learning models and integrating them with business line applications.

OUR TOOLS

Why work with Filament?

Strong data science credentials

Our expert team, partnerships with leading technology providers and academic institutions, and a dedicated R&D function ensure that we remain at the cutting edge of AI developments.

Digital agency approach

We pride ourselves on our strong client relationships, specialist AI consultancy and project delivery expertise. We have many years of experience at successfully delivering substantial global projects for clients.

Proven success

We understand there is much more to AI project delivery than just training a model. Our engineering expertise combined with the tooling we have built up over 100+ successful projects helps us get there faster.

At Filament we understand the differences between an ML Engineer, an Applied Statistician and a Data Analyst. This means we can apply the right skills to your project as it progresses. Once the process is complete, your existing in-house software engineers will be well placed to continue to maintain and improve your new models with minimal data scientist involvement.
