Machine Learning Drives Innovation

Synaptiq offers a boutique artificial intelligence service for chief technology officers and heads of product at enterprise software companies where data-intense products require the aid of machine learning and artificial intelligence to drive innovation. Using a personalized approach coupled with business know-how and project management, we explore data and build, package and deploy AI-models within client products. Our team brings to bear decades of business and data science experience, partnering with each of our clients for optimal and affordable AI-powered solutions.

Unlike costly AI, machine learning consultancies or turnkey products that overpromise and underdeliver, we offer:

  • A unique combination of research, and deep engineering and product experience, 
  • Extensive experience in the field applying machine learning/data science to solve real world problems.
  • A partnership-oriented engagement model to advise and strategize as well as produce results

Machine learning creates a competitive edge and is within grasp, not just for industry giants.
