API Cognition

API Cognition has a solution to the problem of artificial general intelligence. Our goal is to produce a "brain-in-a-box." This technology has been under continuous development since 1999. A breakthrough in the winter of 2014 culminated in the formulation of a biologically inspired whole-brain model. Since then, work has concentrated on the details of software implementation (with patents currently pending). We are currently developing a prototype for demonstration purposes. Once completed, we anticipate actively seeking investment funding and technology partners. Preliminary product plans extend across multiple industries, including; healthcare, software engineering, computer graphics, and simulation.


Bodytrak® is the next generation in wearable technology. Bodytrak provides precision physiology monitoring in a compact earpiece with automated real-time data along with machine learning and intelligent algorithms to give unrivalled insights to enable marginal gains as well as early intervention to reduce risk and associated insurance premiums. It is the only device able to measure core body temperature unobtrusively and as accurately as medical devices. This provides significant advances in the monitoring of elite athletes, industrial workforces, fire fighters, soldiers and patients. The enterprise focused model will be monetised through a subscription PaaS model via direct and partner channels.

Conigital Group

Conigital are transport infrastructure integrators developing Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platforms, IoT sensors and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions for smart cities and the CAV market, lead partner in the Midlands Connected Autonomous Vehicle cluster (MCAV) and a partner on Project INSIGHT, a £2.2 million project to develop driverless shuttles with advanced sensors and to trial them in Birmingham.


We are a 2-yo Cambridge-based start-up, working on optimising AI compute requirements with a number of clients. For example, we are helping General Motors to optimise deep learning for autonomous driving, setting ourselves a hefty goal to reduce the cost and power consumption by at least three orders of magnitude compared with where the industry is today (>10K$, >1KW). This mandates exploring all opportunities across the whole SW/HW stack: from models and algorithms at the top to compute libraries and processors at the bottom.


Galaxy.AI has been featured in INC magazine as one of the most promising AI start-ups for 2017 and is a Techstars NY alumni company. Galaxy.AI has built an artificial intelligence solution for mobility/casualty insurance sector. The vehicle insurance solution, Galacticar, analyzes damaged vehicle images and estimates claims cost. Galacticar increases efficiency of claims adjusters by triaging claims and automating claims processing of low to medium-intensity damage claims. These images are submitted directly through a mobile application which advises a range of claims cost as well as whether a claim should be filed or not. Galaxy.AI is working with top global casualty insurance companies.


illumr is a portfolio company within Founders Factory’s AI Accelerator. It is a deep-tech enterprise data analytics application using a proprietary methodology based on complex self-organising systems. Drawn from over a decades’ worth of academic research, it has been shown to derive hypothesis-free insights that existing analytics tools are blind to. The pilot-version of the product has successfully delivered unique insights to enterprise partners, estimated to drive millions in cost savings. illumr is able to provide references from enterprises who will be willing to buy the product once it is in production (expected within six months). It is currently fund raising.

Motion Robotics

Motion Robotics is based in the United Kingdom and Switzerland. The design team follows an intense research and development program directed at bipedal humanoid, wheeled, social and aerial robotics.
