Applied Research.

Applied Research at Georgian Partners.

We take the latest technology and research trends and translate them into business solutions. Currently, we're looking at areas in advanced ML like transfer learning, representation learning and AutoML. We're also focused on technologies around trustworthy AI, including differential privacy, federated learning, fairness and bias detection, and transparency and explainability.

Why Applied Research?

We look at emerging technology areas within our thesis areas to find technologies that can help our portfolio companies to realize competitive advantages. The criteria we use to assess an applied research area include: ROI, scalability, speed and differentiation.
