Braintree is a research company committed to developing strong artificial intelligence.
We are not creating expert systems, neural networks or robotics. Instead, we are creating new knowledge through navigating, organising, and understanding information.
We intend to create Strong AI through our Sunny project.

Our London-based team of visionary entrepreneurs, computer scientists, and developers believe that Strong AI is a necessary goal to solve some of society’s most complex problems.


Founded in 2002, we have years of experience creating intelligent systems for big data optimisation.

These processes have led us to develop unique understanding in the field of AI.

We have created bespoke software solutions for companies in various industries, helping them increase revenue by analysing and optimising their big data.

12/10/2015 RELAX, IT’S ONLY AI

On 10 December 2015, Dr Peter Bentley, the distinguished computer scientist and author, joined the Directors of Braintree to host a presentation on AI before an audience of leaders from business, government, and the media.

The era of AI has already arrived and is transforming society. Yet it has barely begun. RELAX, IT’S ONLY AI allayed the fears that this fast-growing and important field of technological and scientific discovery has invoked.

It showed how the building blocks of AI, represented by ever greater computer power and highly complex algorithms, can, when applied to almost unimaginably large volumes of data, bring about revolutionary benefits both to humanity and the planet.

When: 3.30pm, 10 December 2015
Where: Faraday Theatre, The Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4BS
