Expert Network expands into Energy and Industrial Sectors


Earlier this month, AI driven expert network announced it has launched coverage of the global energy and industrial sectors, expanding the firm’s initial coverage of the healthcare/life sciences sectors.

New Sector Coverage

AI-based expert network provider,, recently announced that it has expanded its coverage from the healthcare / life sciences sectors to now include the global energy and industrials sectors.

Graham Mills Managing Director & Co-Founder explained the launch of this coverage, “We are on a mission to shake up how investors, consultancies, and corporates across the energy and industrial sectors can connect with precisely the right experts to solve the biggest challenges impacting the industry today.”

“Our latest machine learning techniques and the advancements made to our Knowledge Graph, ensure is changing the game in connecting energy and industrials leaders with subject matter experts using the power of AI.  With access to 2.5 billion high-quality expert profiles, our Knowledge Graph allows us to accurately map the knowledge landscape across all disciplines, ensuring far higher precision and breadth of search than any of our competitors,”  said David Holden-White CEO & Co-Founder. 

Our Take

Founded in 2016, Cambridge-based expert network provider, differentiates itself from other firms in the industry by leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to find and rank experts from an online pool of billions of professionals in real-time. 

Expert selection is mathematically modeled along four dimensions, including the individual’s experience, communication skills (including language), influence and commercial insight.  Rankings on each attribute are provided to clients along with the biography of the expert.  Because the search process is automated, experts are generally sourced in twenty-four hours or less.’s expansion into the energy and industrials sectors is a logical move for the AI-driven expert network, as the firm’s technology should enable them to vet and rank a broad range of experts regardless of the sectors they work in.  The only question we have is why has it taken so long to expand their coverage? 

Of course, we understand that expanding an existing Knowledge Graph into new domains is not an easy or quick undertaking.  However, we hope that the enhancements made to their Knowledge Graph over the past three years will enable the firm to more quickly expand their coverage in the future.  Comments from management suggests that their new technology platform will enable them to quickly become “industry agnostic”.  This will be an interesting development that could profoundly impact the expert network industry.
