Hivemind, a Winton company that fuses machine and human intelligence, is now offering its data science platform and consultancy services to other firms, as Bloomberg reported on September 15.

Hivemind, which was part of Winton’s research division before being incorporated as a separate company in July, is preparing to license its technology and provide consultancy to other firms to help solve their data problems. The unit collects, cleans and enriches complex datasets, and has been offering the services to artificial intelligence firms in which Winton is invested.

An estimated 90 percent of the data that exists today has been created in the last two years alone, JPMorgan Chase & Co. wrote in a report in May. But the data deluge is hardly useful for machines in its current form as most of it is unstructured and designed for human consumption in the form of text documents, audio and images.

“It’s not nice, neat tables that you can run correlations on," said Daniel Mitchell, who runs a team of data scientists for Winton. “Hivemind is a technology that can build useful and accurate datasets out of those unstructured data sources and do it quickly."
