SURROUND’s vision is to solve the world’s most complex problems ethically to achieve real-world outcomes for people and society. Our mission is to achieve this through improved sense-making and decisions, by linking knowledge across operations, policy, planning and information holdings.
The SURROUND Technology Offering delivers this by enabling semantic analysis using knowledge graphs, augmented intelligence and machine learning.
Our team contains globally and locally recognised expertise to contribute for private and public sector clients. We are represented on numerous ISO, W3C and Geospatial Standards Committees.
In 2015, SURROUND's two founders (Dr Brad McCusker and Marcus Jowsey) set out to transform the way government and business work. Our focus is linking knowledge in order to assist organisations to make improved empirical, traceable, and explainable decisions. The SURROUND team has created an integrated knowledge engineering platform using semantic, knowledge graph, and machine learning (ML) technologies.
SURROUND provides value to our customers and the broader citizen community by supplying government agencies and business with cost-effective solutions that address and solve organisational complexity. Our solutions leverage global standards and world-class algorithms in the design of generic or customised solutions as required.
