About

Explosion AI is a digital studio specialising in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing. We design custom algorithms, applications and data assets. We're the makers of spaCy, the leading open-source library for advanced NLP.

We believe the best AI products won't be built from boxed solutions. We want to build you custom statistical models. You come to us with a business problem, and we'll suggest a way to translate it into a machine learning problem. We'll also figure out whether you need new data assets, and quote you a price. What we can't do is quote you an accuracy figure, because performance is too difficult to predict. Instead, we'll give you a trial.
