We are pleased to announce that Glass has been selected to take part in the Machine Intelligence Garage, a programme launched by Digital Catapult to support the UK’s role as a global centre for artificial intelligence development.

The Garage is designed to help promising AI startups with a well defined business idea and technical capability for whom access to computation power is a barrier to growth. As a young technology startup, at Glass we are limited by the amount of computation power that we can use. Participation in the Machine Intelligence Garage will significantly increase the amount of open web data that we can read to train and improve our intelligent crawler.

Applications were assessed based on the strength of the idea submitted and technical implementation plan, availability of data, and the immediacy of the need for computation power. The companies’ ethical use of data was also paramount.

We continue in our mission is to read the web to create an unparalleled resource for the world’s researchers.
