In addition, Ginie AI’s advisory board includes world leading professors in machine learning and computer science, as well as Lord Neuberger, the former President of the Supreme Court. We are graduates of renowned deep technology incubator Entrepreneur First, UCL Hatchery and Barclays Eagle Labs.

We are a spin out from the machine learning department of the UCL - where both founders obtained their MSc in machine learning, after 10 years combined experience in industry.
