We Are Thinking Machines

We are a data science consultancy with offices in Singapore, Manila (PH) and San Francisco (US). Founded by Stanford engineering graduates who’ve worked on data products at some of the best tech companies in Silicon Valley, we are committed to delivering quality work for ourselves, our clients, and our community.

We solve problems using data for businesses and government organizations. We start each client conversation with a vision. We define the solution with the client based on their business needs. Some clients need a big data platform to get real-time insights into their operations. For other clients we deploy cutting edge AI to predict retail demand.

We are a community of engineers, researchers, designers, journalists, consultants from a wide range of sectors, including Silicon Valley tech companies, international non-profits, and the academe.

Our diverse backgrounds influence the way we tackle our clients challenges. Every data science problem we approach from a holistic perspective. We bring deep expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning and always with a commitment to create real business impact.

Data Sources

We work with any data, which means ANY data - structured, semi-structured, and unstructured - and help you prepare it in a future-proofed data architecture that can evolve with your data strategy. With our lean approach to development, we’ll build a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) in a matter of weeks to create immediate impact.

Rapid Deployment

We are able to generate the first actionable insights within weeks through a number of technology accelerators:

  • Pre-built analytic code modules for rapid deployment of ETL pipelines connected to APIs from commonly used SaaS platforms
  • Use of AI to evaluate data quality, feature engineering, and blueprints for model building and validation
  • Visualization templates for commonly used performance dashboards
