Three Northern AI firms have been accepted onto Tech Nation's Applied AI 3.0 programme, which supports and accelerates the UK’s highest-potential AI scaleups.

In total, 32 British tech firms have joined the scheme, which is government-backed and runs for six months, comprising 11 compact insight sessions delivered by later-stage founders, six coaching sessions with a start-up coach, and regular networking opportunities with investors, corporates and peers.

Manchester healthtech AINOSTICS, Alderley Edge healthtech Gendius, and Leeds retail tech specialist Hyper Group (pictured) were selected for the scheme, having been picked by more than 35 judges from key industries.

AINOSTICS uses AI to enable analytics and diagnostics for neurological conditions like dementia, MS, stroke, and brain injuries - providing automated healthcare platforms to assist in the diagnosis of conditions which are difficult to identify.

Gendius has developed algorithms enabling earlier identification of an individual's risk of developing a chronic disease, launching the Intellin platform which can deliver algorithms directly to the medical team and patient.

While Leeds' Hyper Group utilises AI and data science to help retailers understand the relationships between customers and products, letting them to use this insight to make more profitable, customer-led decisions via a SaaS platform.

Sam Beni, the Applied AI Programme Lead, said: “We at Tech Nation are delighted to welcome such a wide range of innovative companies to our third Applied AI cohort, and to support them on their scaling journeys.

"Following the turbulence of 2020 with the global pandemic, the number of Applied AI scaleups focussing on transforming the world of healthcare is a beacon of hope for the coming years, and the breadth of industries that these AI scaleups are disrupting is testament to AI’s power to shape the world we live in.”
