A bit about us

We believe our team has a unique blend of cutting edge technology and business savvy. We understand what drives an organisation and how machine learning can impact its success. We understand that technology isn’t the magic bullet for everything, but that added intelligence can go a long way to transforming a company. We know you need to deliver value, quickly and cost effectively; we are here to help you achieve that.

We also like to have a lot of fun when we work with someone. Life is far too short not to enjoy what we do and who we partner with.


Founded in early 2016, Intela has established itself as a leader in machine learning projects and products, with deployments across public and private sectors.

Intela has a growing reputation for delivering value quickly; rapidly building impressive POC projects through to deployment into challenging production environments.

We are growing fast to deliver more enterprise AI solutions.
