Applied Invention is a multidisciplinary innovation company that partners with corporations to design and build new technologies to help them grow and adapt to rapidly changing environments.

We are a group of experienced technologists that have especially strong skills in building complex systems that incorporate data analytics, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, machine learning, distributed sensors, robotics and data visualization. We work at the speed of a startup, with quality that comes from years of working together as a cohesive team.

Our relationships with our partners, primarily Fortune 1000 companies, are confidential and encompass a broad range of industries including agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, information technology, energy, medical and healthcare. We will only work with one company in each industry.

Founded by Danny Hillis, our leadership has worked together for over 30 years successfully building technology companies and developing solutions in partnership with large enterprises. Since 2000, our team’s innovations have resulted in more than 1,000 issued patents.

As entrepreneurs, AI’s leadership previously served as founders of several successful technology companies including Applied Minds, Applied Proteomics, Metaweb Technologies, nCube, The Dark Sky Company, Thinking Machines and Weather Build.

Leveraging our experience at both early stage and mature companies, we work with our partners to solve many of the challenges associated with innovation and technology transfer to market.
