The source for ethical, transparent and explainable AI


Moving beyond Robotic Processes Automation, companies want systems that can reason to replace and augment human decision-making.

But they increasingly don't want to trust black-box systems like those built on deep learning.

They want systems that are transparent, can explain themselves, and whose workings and processes can be audited.

They also want systems that will comply with new regulations like the EU's AI Act.'

Out of the lab

We've been working with companies in diverse areas like political PR and EdTech to build up and scope out the ThinkBase offering.

We now offer a SaaS solution,, and two Teams apps, with Nuget and Docker packages available on request.

This is the age of Knowledge graphs

Like all new technology they have roots deep in the past: our founder, Dr Andy, worked on his first Knowledge graph in 1998.

But new developments in Graph Databases and cloud computing have made Knowledge Graphs a practical reality.

With ThinkBase you can:

  • Integrate your organization's specialized knowledge of the structures and relationships that make up your business.
  • Weaponize that by building in Fuzzy expert system rules to make it an active reasoning engine
  • Use common sense reasoning to make inferences and perform sanity checks.
  • Communicate with your reasoning engine using a fully configurable ChatBot front end.

ThinkBase on Microsoft Teams

We have two apps that implement ThinkBase functionality on Teams.

ThinkBase Creator

This implements the most useful parts of the SaaS system as a Teams app, offering the ability to create, edit and test knowledge graphs all in one package.
