Our Work:

AI System Consulting

Engineering and developing ethical AI



We work with businesses and government agencies to design ethically-aware AI systems to achieve our vision. Our initial fields of work include banking, insurance, education, health, retail and social services.

Gradient Institute engages with organisations to perform services such as:

  • Measuring existing automated decision systems for specific ethical considerations determined by the organisation (such as fairness trade-offs) and advise on technical methodologies to improve the systems.
  • Exploring the feasibility of applying automated decision-making to particular existing problems of organisations taking into account specific ethical considerations.
  • Designing, together with the organisation, new automated decision-making systems that are ethically-aware.
  • Building machine learning systems for organisations that implement ethically-aware decision-making.

Gradient Institute aims to transfer the results of its ongoing research and development into all of the above types of engagement.
