BT, Cabinet Office and TechHub award SMEs for big ideas in augmented intelligence

BT, in partnership with the Cabinet Office and TechHub, has announced the winners of its Augmented Intelligence competition at a special event held at BT Tower in London.

The competition was launched earlier this year to find innovative small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with expertise in Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, and robotics whose ideas could help transform the retail, defence and public sectors.

After a Dragons’ Den style presentation, the judging panel selected three winners: Archangel Imaging; and Cortexica. Each will receive a £10,000 prize, plus six months’ membership to TechHub’s global entrepreneur community, workspace and support programme. They will also have the opportunity to work with BT to explore technical and commercial partnerships to bring their solutions to market.

John Manzoni, Permanent Secretary for the Cabinet Office and Chief Executive of the Civil Service, said: “The reforms we’re undertaking across the Civil Service will only be achievable if we harness the latest in innovative technology. So I’m delighted we could be a part of this exciting awards process which encourages innovative solutions and provides us another great opportunity to engage and encourage SMEs.”
