UCL spinout provides business solutions via human-artificial intelligence (AI) cooperation
3 March 2021
Humanloop is a spinout based on research from UCL’s Centre for Artificial Intelligence. It was spun-out with assistance from UCL Business (UCLB), the commercialisation arm of UCL and a part of UCL Innovation & Enterprise.
The team comprises UCL Professors David Barber and Emine Yilmaz with PhD students Raza Habib and Peter Hayes. They are joined by entrepreneur and scientist Jordan Burgess, who was previously involved with another UCL spinout (Bloomsbury AI) as well as the Amazon Alexa AI team.
Raza said: "UCLB was very supportive of our goals of spinning out from the university and advised us on all the requirements relating to intellectual property.”
Co-founder David added:
UCL Technology Fund’s vital investment means we can put our research into practice and take this exciting vision forward.
