Digital Catapult has launched its Machine Intelligence Garage initiative to provide businesses with the computer power and expertise needed to develop machine learning and artificial intelligence solutions in the UK. The programme has been designed to help start-ups with well-defined business ideas and technical capabilities for whom access to computation power is a barrier to growth.
Open calls will go out every six weeks starting this month, with the first cohort getting down to work in the workshop on 23 January 2018. There will also be experimentation days to help companies get along with systems for machine intelligence and try out new hardware solutions.
“Garages hold a special place in the history of tech,” says says Digital Catapult. “They are the beginning of great things; a place where game-changing innovations are born and incubated.
“Machine Intelligence Garage is more than a set of tools or a place. It is a comprehensive programme focused on building capacity and capability, allowing participants to experiment and engage with trial and error, solve problems, collaborate, inspire and learn, develop and test.”
