The Responsible AI Institute is pleased to welcome Further, a company that enhances enterprise team efficiency through data, cloud, and AI technologies, to its growing community of industry-leading members. 

Further is pioneering the development of advanced AI systems with extensive capabilities for open-ended reasoning and problem-solving across various domains. 

With over 15 years of industry experience, Further assists organizations in addressing their most pressing questions through robust use of data, cloud computing, and advanced AI systems. They deliver value through data-driven initiatives that help organizations responsibly develop strategies, governance, privacy, and security, ensuring their own practices remain efficient and trustworthy. 

‘Cutting-edge work on AI’ 

“We’re delighted to welcome Further as a member of the Responsible AI Institute,” said Jeff Easley, General Manager at the Responsible AI Institute. “Further’s cutting-edge work on AI and data implementation and their commitment to developing advanced AI capabilities responsibly will be invaluable to shaping trustworthy practices and standards for transformative AI technologies.”

Continued partnership 

This partnership with the Responsible AI Institute builds upon Further’s AI development and growth, having acquired Pandata, member of the Responsible AI Institute, earlier this year. 

“I’m thrilled to continue our partnership with the Responsible AI Institute post-acquisition,” said Cal Al-Dhubaib, Head of AI & Data Science at Further. “As a privacy-first solution provider, the Pandata team has found a great home at Further. We see tremendous potential for scaling our impact and contributing to shared standards that balance the needs of innovation with clear guardrails.
