Our story

With roots going back to 2011, Seldon Technologies Ltd was founded in 2014 with a simple yet ambitious aim: accelerate the adoption of machine learning to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems.

Since 2014, we have achieved:
  • €3m seed funding
  • 170,000 installs
  • 38% MoM growth
  • Seldon Core is at work in Google, RedHat, and IBM ML platforms

Power to the people.
Powered by machines.

To achieve mass uptake, it’s essential to democratise technologies that were previously the preserve of tech giants – and put them in everyone’s hands. By February 2015 we’d made our first open-source release which has become 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. We’re kinetic, flexible and always looking to the future.

Seldon is a guest advisor to the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Group for Artificial Intelligence.
