Sparrow is a world leader in making science accessible to build trust in brands. They achieve this using their unique combination of AI and PhD experts, which they call Augmented Intelligence. Sparrow was founded in 2013 out of frustration with existing literature search tools by two Oxbridge scientists, and now has a growing and tightly knit team based in London, UK.

Today Sparrow caters to Fortune 500 companies across the globe. Their platform uses augmented intelligence to aggregate, curate and summarise the latest in scientific research.
