True Knowledge were an innovative Cambridge startup who created a question answering service that used ground-breaking semantic search technologies. They were acquired by Amazon and their technology is used today to power Alexa, Amazon’s digital assistant appearing in flagship products such as the Amazon Echo.

Rekenys worked with True Knowledge as they grew from the prototyping stage through to a public service answering questions from more than 1m visitors a month. With our help, TrueKnowledge grew their engineering team from three to thirty. We provided development, devops and infrastructure experience as well as extensive profiling and optimisation skills to enable the transition from a single-machine demonstration in to a scalable cloud-based solution running on top of Amazon ECS.
