Innovation Units



We love solving interesting business problems. But we can’t do this if we don’t stay on top of technology trends and developments.

Our Innovation Units, led by industry experts, give us the space to play and learn so that we can accelerate growth in our specialised technologies.

Machine learning & artificial intelligence


Etienne Barnard, well-known for his work on pattern recognition and speech processing, heads up the ML and AI unit. Together with his team of specialists, they look for new ML and AI trends, with a particular interest in the applications of Deep Neural Networks. The unit’s focus is on domains where significant amounts of data are available, and where a learning capability would add substantial value to such data -- with the goal to develop prototype solutions that demonstrate this.
