Working with AIAI
Our commercial clients work with us in three ways:

Application Development

Application development assists a client to produce innovative solutions through:

  • proof-of-concept demonstrators
  • prototypes
  • software solutions
while transferring the AI technology to experienced staff in the client organisation.


Consultancy assists a client to understand how AI methods and techniques have been, and can be applied, reporting through:

  • advanced technology strategy studies
  • surveys on technologies, methods and tools
  • advanced technology feasibility studies.

Training gives clients specialist skills in the application of AI methods and techniques through visitor programmes, tutorials and in-house courses in areas such as:

  • Knowledge Management
  • AI Programming in Java
  • Genetic Algorithms & Genetic Programming
The Affiliateship Scheme

AIAI operates an affiliateship agreement whereby a client commits to a certain resource level over a one year period and, in return, obtains a flexible composition of application development, consultancy and training. The affiliateship agreement will typically identify one or two key goals to be achieved, and these will be met by the most suitable mixture of services and collaboration.
