  • OUR STORY

    Enabling people-focused campaigns through advances in artificial intelligence.

    Based in London, Avantgarde Analytics is a young and dynamic data science company with deep expertise in algorithmic campaigning and artificial intelligence. Our unique approach was pioneered in the PhD research of our co-founders during their doctoral studies at Oxford University - combining new insights in human-computer interaction, behavioural science, machine learning and the social science of the Internet.

     

    We realised that the social media space is becoming increasingly crowded, saturated and competitive. In the age of clickbait and fake news, many organisations struggle to build meaningful relationships with people. This is why we develop intelligent applications and algorithms to make digital campaigns smarter: we amplify your core messages and help you build more engaged relationships with the right people at the right time.

     

    We support brands, political campaigns and social movements. By analysing a constant stream of data, our deep learning technology enables the mass-individualisation of campaigns - recognising that each individual may have different needs and tastes that require a different approach of persuasion. All of this work is driven by our teleological code of ethics - inspired by our bold vision for the role of artificial intelligence in society.

     

  • "Campaign technology startups like Avantgarde Analytics go one step further by using AI for better voter engagement. Leveraging machine learning algorithms, they advocate the ethical individualisation of election campaigns - recognising that each individual may have different needs and tastes that require a different approach. This involved the flagging of alt-right bot accounts and the automated checking of “alternative facts”. People-focused techniques like this can help to break up echo chambers and give individuals diverse information."
