About Us


The founders of Complexica have worked together for almost 20 years building enterprise software applications that are “smart” and “adaptive”. Such applications bring together the disciplines of algorithmic science and software engineering, as the “science” enables the "smarts" within the software. In addition to authoring thousands of publications and dozens of books, our staff and scientific advisors possess decades of real-world experience in applying Artificial Intelligence to complex business problems. Our enterprise software optimising decisions employs techniques from a range of fields, including deep learning, predictive analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, simulation, and big data analytics.
