Show Notes 43: It’s all about the people (and a bit of luck), with Intellegens CEO Ben Pelligrini

In this episode we talk to problem solver, Ben Pelligrini, CEO at Machine Learning company Intellegens.

We hear about how Intellegens are addressing a broad application area that could transform experimental/ industrial settings for ingredient-based products (with an example of concrete).

Intellegens’ objective is to use algorithms to get the most out of data, and they do this with a machine leading model and a complimentary enterprise SW platform that enables the tech to be deployed and the results accessible.

As Ben says: “Algorithms are just going to make things better”

Ben talks about the journey that he and co-founder Gareth Conduit took - spinning out from The Cavendish Laboratory, supported by Cambridge Enterprise, and Innovate UK - and the path to demonstrating value as quickly as possible.

What comes across really clearly in the conversation is the culture at Intellegens. No, they can’t match the packages on offer at the giants located here in Cambridge, but their focus on the team, and access to an amazing client base including the likes of Rolls Royce and NASA, makes them a great company to work for.

So what’s next? Intellegens will continue to scale, focus on customer acquisition and growth, launch in the US, and build on the Trustworthy AI Consortium work to help the industry as a whole. Watch this space for more announcements later this year.
