About Seldon

Organisations want to build a one-to-one relationship with customers and make better decisions. But skilled data scientists are in short supply, and building machine learning in-house means reinventing the wheel instead of solving the parts of the problem that matter most.

Seldon is the open-source machine learning pipeline for real-time recommendations and enterprise-grade predictive analytics. It includes proven algorithms, industry models and a microservices API to productionize your own. Seldon is platform-agnostic with no lock-in. You keep full ownership and control of sensitive data on-premise or in the cloud.

Our Story

A team of data scientists based in London and Cambridge have been laying the foundations for Seldon since 2011. After cutting our teeth building location-based recommendation apps, we focused on creating a high-performance recommendation engine. Our goal was to help media and e-commerce companies to build smarter and more personalised websites and apps, to boost engagement and conversion while improving the user experience.

We created Seldon to democratise machine learning, to make it easier for data scientists, developers and decision makers to harness the power of this transformational and revolutionary technology. Seldon serves billions of predictions per month to an international audience and our team works directly with some of the world’s largest organisations. Each integration is unique, with algorithms and configurations fine-tuned to fit like a tailored suit.

In February 2015, Seldon made its first open-source release. Since then it has grown to become one of the most popular machine learning platforms for the enterprise. Seldon is proud to be part of Barclays Accelerator powered by Techstars, working on some FinTech use cases with the support of some of the brightest minds in technology and finance.
