Personalyse AI

Accurate, personal demographics

Personalyse AI comprises a team of AI engineers and data scientists who have built a proprietary AI retail marketing platform called Topic DNA. It profiles a customer’s behaviour, personality type and personal preferences ‘non-invasively’. It is thought to deliver the same accuracy as a 60-minute written psychometric test (~80%), only without asking said customer to do a test. This kind of profiling technology takes its cue from persistent web technologies which "follow" customers around the web, only with automation to make judgements and decisions faster.

  They also have software which, in similar fashion to the concept of the ‘social intelligence graph’, uses AI in real-time to detect a customer’s social footprint and social media activity, tying together all the public data with machine learning to create accuracy demography for some of the biggest retailers, marketing agencies and others.


Data analytics and ID specialist

Hello Soda are the folks behind fraud-detection and financial identity software platform, Sodium - used by a number of leading fintech businesses. Sodium was designed and built by a multi-lingual team of ID and data science specialists across the globe. The platform enables organisations to not only add multiple verification/KYC products into one place, but it also cross-references data to perform additional checks.

  This includes information checked from document ID data which is cross-referenced with the dark web to an individual’s social footprint, compared to CRA data. Hello Soda’s tech is ML and AI heavy, with a team comprising leading #datasci talent from across the world. Another company that technically has offices elsewhere (Thailand and US), it does have an office in Manchester, hence the HelloSoda entry in our AI companies in Manchester list.
