Versed AI is a new Cambridge University spin-out being formed by a post-doc and post-graduates from several different university departments. The team has developed Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) technology for business intelligence purposes.
The technology can text-mine millions of news articles, business reports and social media for relationships between organisations, companies, products, and people. This information can be used to create vast knowledge networks that artificial intelligence is applied to in order to discover patterns and infer missing or unknown knowledge. These networks have many useful applications including predicting future relations and discovering information from the network structure. The first application the team intends to focus on is to automatically extract supply chain maps.
