Google supporting Gobbill’s next phase of AI research and development
Gobbill have announced that Google is their new strategic growth partner and supporting them with Google’s Cloud Program as a Scale tier Artificial Intelligence (AI) first equity backed company.
Google is supporting Gobbill as they explore the next phase of their R&D providing Gobbill with ~A$500,000 over 2 years in AI financial credits, technology, resources and its community needed for Gobbill to grow.
Gobbill’s AI journey started back in mid 2015 when they applied Deep-Learning text-in-the-wild to automate bill payments and machine learning models for detecting fraud.
In their early days, Gobbill were based in their AI & Data Science partner Silverpond’s co-working space called The Pond.
Gobbill’s journey has been an exciting one working with Silverpond and with plenty of support from Microsoft. Together, they have explored use-cases and what’s possible using AI over the last 8 years.
Commenting on the partnership, Gobbill CEO Shendon Ewans said, “We are excited about our new strategic partnership with Google and their support in our next phase of Australian AI research and development.”
