BELFAST data firm Analytics Engines has been named among 32 companies joining a new UK Government backed tech growth programme.

Based at Chlorine Gardens in the south of the city, the firm specialises in tailored data solutions that enable your organisation to make decisions more effectively and efficiently.

It's among 32 artificial intelligence (AI) tech scale-ups accepted into Tech Nation's third Applied AI growth programme.

The six-month government-backed scheme was created to support and accelerate tech firms who are applying AI in practical areas to create real-world impact.

Analytics Engines uses machine learning, and artificial intelligence as a core part of its business to accelerate conversion of data into valuable business insights and outcomes.

The firm, which has worked with RTÉ, Queen's University and a number of government bodies, has developed its own platform (Minerva) which helps users to enhance, query, search and explore their data to find hidden patterns and relationships between individuals, organisations, places and documents to better understand risk, find opportunities, or locate anomalies.

Founders Scott Fischaber and Prof Roger Woods said they are looking forward to the opportunities offered through the Applied AI 3.0 growth programme.

“In 2020, Tech Nation selected Analytics Engines as one of the UK's most innovative AI organisations; recognition that helped propel us from strength to strength,” they said.
