Frog Systems partners UWS for quarter of a million-pound AI mental health project

Tech start-up Frog Systems has been given the go-ahead for a quarter of a million-pound project with the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) to use Artificial Intelligence and advanced data science techniques to accelerate the development of its pioneering mental health and wellbeing platform.

Announced during Mental Health Awareness Week, the 30-month project is part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) funded by UKRI through Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency. The KTP will link Frog Systems with a recently qualified computing graduate who will be based at the company and ongoing academic support from a team of academics at UWS, led by Professors Naeem Ramzan and Zeeshan Pervez from the School of Computing, Engineering, and Physical Sciences. UWS is #1 in Scotland and one of the leading universities in the UK for the size of its Knowledge Transfer Partnerships portfolio.

Phil Worms, CEO of Frog Systems, said, “Demand for the mental health and wellbeing support our platform offers is increasing and this partnership will bring new knowledge and skills to our business to position us for rapid scale-up. The ability to embed AI and Machine Learning will make the platform more responsive for users and give our clients even greater insight into how they can allocate resources to provide support.”

Frog Systems’ unique online platform showcases videos of people sharing their life experiences to direct users to support services. Over the next two and a half years, UWS will help Frog Systems develop its content streaming capabilities through an intelligent recommendations engine and dynamic video content delivery process. Currently, users are matched to resources by keywords they physically type in.

Dr Stuart McKay, Senior KTP Manager at UWS, said, “As an employer committed to the health and wellbeing of our staff and students, Frog Systems’ message is one that resonates with us. Our award-winning AI and Machine Learning knowledge are being applied to develop the next generation of Frog Systems’ wellness software platform; streamlining both content production and service delivery, providing greater insight for platform adopters and, critically, an enhanced end-user experience.”

Frog Systems is based at Bellahouston Business Centre in Glasgow. The KTP project with UWS has been welcomed by the local MP.

Commenting, Alison Thewliss MP said: “It’s great to see local business Frog Systems teaming up with the University of the West of Scotland to further enhance its mental health and wellbeing services.

“For many of us, the pandemic has changed the way that we work, with more time spent away from family, friends, colleagues, and stakeholders. Platforms such as that being developed by Frog Systems seek to ensure that people can communicate more easily and effectively, and that tailored support packages can be offered to the individual.

“These emerging technologies are very welcome, and it’s especially encouraging to see this announcement coming during mental health awareness week.

“I wish the company all the very best in their future endeavors and look forward to visiting them at some point in the future.”

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships aim to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology, and skills within the UK knowledge base.

Dr Gerry Black, the Senior Knowledge Transfer Adviser at KTN, said: “I am delighted to have supported Frog Systems to win KTP funding and am excited to see them working with their partners at UWS to embed artificial intelligence into their video-led wellness platform.”

Earlier this year Frog Systems helped client Sussex Cricket score a world first as it became the first professional sports club in the world to launch a community mental health and wellbeing platform. The KTP project will develop the platform further as a fully integrated service offering for commercial, government, and not-for-profit organisations in the UK and internationally.

XYZ Reality and UCL Win KTP funding to help transform hospital construction

London-based construction technology start-up, XYZ Reality, and University College London (UCL), have been awarded a government grant to develop XYZ Reality’s augmented reality solution into the construction of UK hospitals. The grant has been awarded by UKRI through an Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP).

Founded in 2017, XYZ Reality developed Engineering-Grade AR to tackle some of the most pervasive and costly issues facing the construction industry. Its technology uniquely enables users to view hyperscale BIM models on-site in real-time and to millimeter accuracy, making it particularly beneficial for projects with complex MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) services, such as hospitals or data centres. The company is on a mission to eliminate 2D in its entirety, empowering construction teams to Build it Right, First Time. XYZ Reality is the company behind HoloSite, the world’s first Engineering Grade Augmented Reality system.

Significant accuracy and efficacy savings have been strongly evidenced through hyperscale data centre adoption. Overall construction sector benefits through technology-enabled transformation are expected to be phenomenal locally, nationally and internationally.

In 2019, the government announced the Hospital Infrastructure Plan, a five-year programme of investment in health infrastructure, including building 40 new hospitals, which will deliver world-class facilities to meet the changing needs and rising demands facing the NHS. This programme will rely on innovation to be successful, in particular, the adoption of new technologies both in design and build are crucial, as current approaches are time-consuming, ineffective, costly and out of date.

This Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP)  will be delivered in partnership with UCL’s world-leading Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction and Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), with support from UCL Innovation & Enterprise. It will examine how Engineering-Grade Augmented Reality (AR) can help to bring infamously complex construction projects in on-time and on-budget, using hospitals as case studies. Case studies will feed into XYZ Reality’s overarching aim to enable transformation in the construction sector through the demonstration of benefits, such as improving productivity and efficiency, reducing waste and developing sustainable approaches.

Dr Grant Mills, Faculty Lead for Health and Associate Professor, said: “Hospitals are complex construction environments because of the sheer range of MEP services involved. This often leads to clashes and errors in the build phase, and the need for expensive and time-consuming re-work.”

Prof Duncan Wilson, Professor of Connected Environments in UCL Bartlett CASA, added: “This KTP grant offers us an important opportunity to understand how AR can help different users interact digitally with the environment in novel ways, and by doing so improve productivity, and deliver time and cost savings.”

XYZ Reality’s founder and CEO David Mitchell said: “We’re thrilled to have been selected for the KTP grant and delighted at partnering with UCL on this project. Our Engineering- Grade AR technology is already being deployed on construction projects with the same levels of complexity as hospital builds, and I’m pleased to say that it is generating significant time and cost savings.”

David continues: I’m passionate about supporting the NHS, so I’m glad that this research will enable us to fully understand the benefits that our technology can offer these specific projects, and help those constructing UK hospitals to build it right, first time.”

Mohan Ahad, Knowledge Transfer Adviser at KTN – one of the delivery partners for the KTP Programme – shares: “This is a very exciting project, which will demonstrate how Augmented Reality can reduce waste and increase productivity in the construction sector. I look forward to working with XYZ and UCL on this transformative concept.”

Natalie Gough, Programme Manager – Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, UCL Innovation & Enterprise, said: “KTP is the best mechanism for XYZ Reality to work closely with leading UCL expertise. It will enable them to understand how to adapt and validate use of AR technology in hospital projects, and to establish an internal intelligence function. It’s a chance to really understand the potential of this technology to reduce waste and increase productivity. It will also help transform the construction sector, and for an exciting start-up to feed into the evidence base and government priorities.”

Management KTP V/Blog -Interview Management KTP Associate Dr Gordon Jack, IPIG LTD

Welcome to a series of blogs and vlogs designed to help you better understand Management Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (MKTPs).

Management KTPs are a funding opportunity aimed at helping UK businesses improve the way they work.

They are built on the highly successful Knowledge Transfer Partnership model – the UK’s longest running knowledge exchange programme which has helped more than 14,000 businesses innovate for growth.

Like KTPs, Management KTP’s link you in a collaborative partnership with specialist academics who have the know-how to help you transform the way your business operates. 

In this V/blog (one in a series – see links to others below), Knowledge Transfer Adviser, Lorna Howarth interviews KTP Associate, Gordon Jack, about his role as a change agent on his Management KTP with specialist glass company, IPIG.

Register here for our Management KTP Webinar, 10-11.30 on Tuesday 27 April

INSIGHTS FROM A MANAGEMENT KTP Associate

Behind every successful collaboration is a team of great people. A Management KTP comprises academic experts from world class Knowledge Bases who form a partnership with the senior leadership team of a business. The glue that cements this relationship is the KTP Associate. Today we’re going to explore exactly who a Management KTP Associate is and what they can offer. 

My name is Lorna Howarth, and I am one of 31 Knowledge Transfer Advisers at KTN who support KTP and MKTPs.  I feel very privileged as I am both a coach and a mentor to many Associates which gives me a powerful insight into who these wonderful people are. 

What are the characteristics of a Management KTP Associate?

  • Qualified to a high level, with an impressive CV and highly relevant credentials
  • Determined, driven, motivated and enthusiastic
  • Efficient communicators 
  • Sensitive to company culture and confident enough to manage culture change

But don’t take my word for it! I’d like to introduce you to Gordon Jack who has been working on a MKTP project for around 18 months with University of the West of Scotland and the company IPIG

LORNA: Gordon, first of all could you tell me a little bit about your pre-KTP background? 

GORDON: Thank you, Lorna. So a quick potted history:  I completed my honours degree in Building Surveying in 2012 going on to do a MSc in Strategic Project Management in 2013 and then got a PhD scholarship.  When I graduated in November 2018, I was quite committed to leaving academia, but to do what exactly was the main challenge. But then KTP was introduced to me and I was advised to apply.  It sounded like the perfect bridge between academia and “the real world”.

LORNA: Thank you – sounds like you had a unique blend of construction and  project management knowledge. Can you tell me a little bit about your role at IPIG and why your skill set was a perfect fit for this position as a MKTP associate? 

GORDON: This MKTP responds to IPIG’s need for a bespoke marketing and business process provision that is embedded within the organisation to advance its growth and sustainability.  Although my background doesn’t exclusively focus on either marketing or business process my diverse academic experience has given me a transferable skill set which matched well with what IPIG was looking for.  The academic support provided as part of the KTP framework really comes into its own for the specialist knowledge needed, and this has been invaluable to the project and my own personal development as well.

LORNA: It sounds like IPIG is a company that is really growing which must present some real opportunities as well as some specific challenges. I understand that you are responsible for driving a change management project. Can you tell me a little more about what this has entailed? 

GORDON: Sure.  With this project, everything has been about change, and within such a small company, you need to bring people on that journey with you to be successful.  During the project, the needs of the business routinely take over, with the associate expected, and naturally eager, to take on more to advance their learning and commercial awareness.  There is flexibility in the workplan to accommodate for this, and  I am there to champion and drive everything change-related within the business whilst bringing everyone along with me.

LORNA: A big part of KTP is embedding new knowledge into a company that leaves a lasting legacy. For example, a new capability. Can you describe some of the differences you feel you have made since you started your MKTP? 

GORDON: One of the greatest challenges with SMEs and working alongside company founders can be the lack of willingness to change. But by engaging in a MKTP, there is obviously a willingness to embrace change. Involving people at all levels throughout the organisation has been key to get buy-in for the changes I have been implementing.Some of these measures include implementing new data management processes which drive efficiencies, introduction of functional business system tools, rebranding, digital marketing and inhouse measures that reward and recognise the importance of our staff.

LORNA: We consider our KTP Associates to be the leaders of the future; on a final note, what are your aspirations for the future? 

GORDON: As a result of my MKTP experience I am now unwaveringly certain that I will be a senior business leader in the future, operating my own outstanding company. I have seen first-hand the benefits of having someone with an academic pedigree driving change within the business and how transformative this can be if positioned right. Whatever the future has in store for me, I am excited for the challenges it brings with it. 

LORNA: Gordon, I’m sure that you have an exciting journey ahead and that IPIG will reap significant benefits from the knowledge that you have transferred and embedded during the course of your MKTP. Thank you again for agreeing to chat with me today.
