Scrub AI

We are a research focussed company taking on problems that are only possible to solve with machine learning and AI. We specialise in automating the repetitive task of data cleansing or "scrubbing". Spreadsheets are currently cleansed with rule based systems, normally written as Excel macros. These don't scale and can't take into account multiple edge cases in the data.  We use the latest breakthroughs in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Vision to achieve above human accuracy in data cleansing.
