How this Melbourne entrepreneur wants to use artificial intelligence to make the world a better place

With a pocketful of savings, Melbourne entrepreenur Michelle Mannering and three fellow founders are busy building a platform utilising artificial intelligence to make the world a smarter and better place.

As a hacker-in-residence at Carlton Connect and a participant in the Melbourne Accelerator Program, Mannering and her team are one of the first residents in Melbourne’s new “melting pot” for innovation.

“My co-founders and I all met at a bunch of different hackathons,” Mannering tells StartupSmart.

Just a year after meeting, the team has launched Black AI, a startup offering a platform that is developing machine learning computer vision.

“Basically, we just teach computers how to understand and interpret the world,” Mannering says.

She says it’s a technology that could potentially be used everywhere from home security and city planning to health and aged care.

The Black AI technology could be used to develop keyless homes where doors only unlock for recognised residents, and in cities to analyse pedestrian traffic and use of public places.

By the end of this year, Mannering wants Black AI to have run five successful trials and by November they’re expecting to hit a high six-figure revenue target.

“We want to roll out and convert five trails into paying customers,” she says.
