To our clients, we’re an enabler.
Welcome to Seldon.
The Seldon Story
At Seldon, we’re connected. To an innovative community. And to the future of data science itself. We’re driven with a passionate belief in enabling ever better AI – sitting within a trusted, stable framework. And we constantly look ahead.
We can trace our roots back to 2011, a talented multidisciplinary team in London and Cambridge and a content recommendation engine that reached hundreds of millions of users.
We wanted to go further, so we founded Seldon Technologies Ltd in 2014 with a simple aim: to accelerate the adoption of machine learning to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems. We make this happen by democratising technologies that were once the preserve of tech giants – and putting them in everyone’s hands.
Bringing machine learning to life
By February 2015, we’d made our first open-source release which has since grown into one of the world’s most popular machine learning platforms. A year later, as part of Barclays Techstars, we began building applied AI use cases alongside the brightest minds in finance and technology. And we haven’t stopped.
Today, you’ll find us at Rise London, the Shoreditch home of fintech, where we host TensorFlow London, a community of over 1600 data scientists and machine learning enthusiasts. Work with us and you’ll find we’re kinetic, flexible and restless. Always looking ahead of the curve to the future beyond.
Seldon is a guest advisor to the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Group for Artificial Intelligence.
