Our History

Since 2013 established as thought leaders on applied AI & ML

EXPLORE-AI has been working on applied-AI models for the telecommmunications and utilities industries since 2013. EXPLORE-AI Data Science Academy was created in 2017 to become a very successful Data Science academy based out of South Africa. After more than 4 years working on the curricula, more than 1,000 students have graduated from the Academy with a 90% placement in high paying tech jobs.

What started as an educational project quickly allowed to start-up a full-fledged solutions and products organisation that can leverage on all the knowledge to solve real-life problems for utilities in general, and water and wastewater utilities on an initial stage.

  • 2019: Opened an office in the UK to focus on water and wastewater utilities to support them in the Digital Utility of the Future concept.
  • 2020: We started developing a CORE platform as a foundation for all our products and solutions.
  • 2021: Global expansion in the US and Europe
  • Growth

    We have grown the business on double digits, year-over-year, and currently employing 100+ EXPLORERs between the UK and South Africa.

  • Becoming Thought Leaders in Applied Data Science

    EXPLORE-AI is uniquely positioned as a throught leader on AI and ML models for the digital utilities of the future.

  • Global Reach

    We are expanding our capabilities and offerings not only to the UK but Europe and the US as well.

We are on a mission to help utility providers of all sizes to solve their core strategic problems using data and AI to better serve their customers.
