About Junction AI & our Team

At the junction of art and science,
where marketing meets data science

Our Story

At Junction AI our mission is to make AI machine learning something that is easy to use, immediate and impactful for marketers.

Instead of big expensive custom IT developments, big data projects and years long time frames our proprietary AI machine learning platform automatically generates and trains an AI model in only a couple hours. Marketers can connect their data with no technical configuration required, hit “connect” and start benefitting today from AI analytics that enhance their experience and role in their companies and for their clients.

We didn’t start with the idea of an AI platform!

We started as a local discovery app called Instant Local. The app provided users an image-based guide on offers, events, products and services nearest their location and most relevant to their needs.

The app was live for 8 months in 2016/2017 on Google and Apple app stores. In this time, we on-boarded 800 business, large and small, across Austin and Dallas. The app and our company was featured in CultureMap Dallas as a “startup to watch right now

In July 2017 after sessions with the apps marketing clients we gained deeper insights on the challenges they faced with digital advertising on so many different customer channels. Marketers wanted to make smarter spending decisions and harnessing their data.

We were successful in becoming 1 of 10 finalists in the Marriott, Accenture Interactive and 1776 Travel Experiences Incubator in August 2017 on our technical proof of concept. In November 2017 we were finalists in the Toronto based Next AI program. In 2018 we were selected as 1 of 12 US companies in AI, AR/VR in the InnoSTARS competition, spending a week in Shanghai, Nanjing and Qingdao with leading Chinese tech companies and research institutes. In Feb 2019 as we moved past prototype we joined the NVIDIA Inception program to advance our AI capability.

We were successful in graduating from the Blue Startups Accelerator in August 2019.  We are now working with growth and performance marketers and marketing agencies to optimize conversions, saving time & cost and evidencing their decisions with data science.
