About Us

K-Now is a spin out of the University of Sheffield’s Department of Computer Science and was created in 2007 by academics and researchers of the Natural Language Processing and Organisations, Information and Knowledge Group.

As well as working closely with the University to provide data management solutions we have since been active in many industry and research projects and have expanded our technology and scope of operations into several additional sectors.

These include the multimillion euro funded global research projects WeSenseIt, GrassMargins, and Owasis-UK. (To find out more about our projects and collaborators visit our collaborators page).

We have a close working relationship with the University of Sheffield who are among the most highly respected and trusted sources of computer science expertise in the world.

Our partnership with the university allows us to offer a low level of potential risk while ensuring maximum potential rate of investment during product development.
