Impact Insight video case study: Versed AI

The second in our new series of Impact Insight videos focuses on Versed AI.

It tells the story behind the creation of Versed AI, a University of Cambridge spin-out which applies its novel Natural Language Processing platform to help companies understand and manage potential risks in their multi-tier supply chains.

Versed AI was the winner of the Chris Abell Postdoc Business Plan Competition in 2019. It had started as a collaboration between Simon Baker, a Postdoc at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics and now CTO of Versed AI, and a PhD student at the Institute for Manufacturing in the Department of Engineering at the University. Cambridge Enterprise has been involved throughout Simon’s research commercialisation journey, from providing support and advice through the competition process to facilitating funding and then becoming a cornerstone investor itself.
