Welcome to the first Alectio newsletter! We’ve been hard at work building out our platform, building on our research, and building up a library of content about both. The folks at Forbes took notice and we’re eager to share it with you as well!

First off, if you’ve been waiting for our on-prem solution, we have good news. We’re hard at work on it and will be looking for beta testers soon. Please reply to this email or let us know at

We’ve also been writing a lot about our research and wanted to share what we’ve been learning:

There’s a misnomer that more data is always better. It isn’t. In fact, adding more data to your models can be hazardous.

Everything you wanted to know about Alectio
Some FAQs about our process, what we believe, and how we can your machine learning models using a fraction of the data you’d expect.

If you want to stay up to date on everything we’re doing, our Medium blog is the best spot to do so. Thanks for reading!
