Using artificial intelligence to enhance human ability

Frontier Labs work with businesses large and small. We help you to better understand your customers, products and business, through data.

We work at the intersection of data science and human centred design to solve problems, reveal opportunities and help you to move your business forward, towards your own frontier.

We can help you

Through the understanding of human behaviour and business needs, we apply rapid prototyping techniques to build systems and products fast. We run pilots to test these in the hands of your customers and experts quickly; to learn, iterate and improve.

In 20 days we created ScoutLab, an intelligent data-driven application that takes a novel approach to football scouting, removing bias and guiding experts in decision making.

  • Services: Rapid prototyping,
  • User experience design (UX),
  • User interface design (UI),
  • Data-driven applications,
  • Machine learning & AI

We use artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to solve problems, reveal opportunities from data and provide actionable insights. Algorithms are the tools that help you mine and craft data into something valuable.

We worked with Shop Direct to transform their experimentation testing process into a more probabilistic Bayesian-driven (MCMC) solution which empowers key decision makers, giving them enhanced visibility and more robust insights.

  • Services: Machine learning & AI,
  • Automation,
  • Technical consulting,
  • Experimentation,
  • Data visualisation

Working with you, we design and build intelligent systems tailored to your customers and businesses needs. Empowering people with data-driven insights that afford greater confidence and faster decision making.

We helped Manchester City Football Club to measure stadium atmosphere with data-driven insights to test marketing activities and improve fan engagement.

  • Services: Machine learning & AI,
  • Automation,
  • Experimentation,
  • Data discovery & insights,
  • Data visualisation

We help you enhance your service and product by applying best practice in user experience design and experimentation. Working with you to define and execute innovative new features that add value to your business.

Collaborating with CarKeys to create a unified design system that affords faster experimentation across design, development and marketing teams.

  • Services: Unified Design System,
  • Experimentation,
  • User experience design (UX)
