Departmental Enhancements, Expansions and New Hires in DKG’s Dedicated AI and Data Science Division
Deep Knowledge Group considers itself among a small vanguard of organizations whose mission and vision is truly defined by its Data Science and technological forecasting experts, rather than the other way around. We do not simply use data analytics to support our goals; we use it to define and drive them. In a sense, you can consider that DKG's Board of Directors reports to its data, analytics and science/technology forecasting specialists, and not the other way around.
Internally stylizing itself as the 'DeepMind of DeepTech', the Group considers its Data Science Assets as its most valuable resource, and this year has seen a large number of its long-term projects come to fruition within this domain. This past month alone saw the implementation of a number of key enhancements and expansions to the Group’s internal AI and Data Science division, including:
Hiring several dozens of new members into its Data Science Team, including mathematicians, data science specialists, physicists and quant finance specialists and economists,
Further enhancement of the DKG General Data Science Department structure, including the establishment of several new more narrowly-focused sub-divisions working on more advanced solutions to the department’s existing scope of projects
Several key enhancements to the Group’s existing Big Data Analytical Dashboards, including:
Public companies heatmap
Hedging and option analysis tool
Automated index builder
Launch of the European Digital Ecosystem Dashboard
Launch of the Gulf Region Digital Ecosystem Dashboard
Launch of a new, freemium Demo Dashboard showcasing the most interesting and advanced features of the full DKG Big Data Analytics Ecosystem of Dashboards
Keep an eye out for more news on the launch of other Data Science enhancements and projects in the coming months, and stay tuned to next month’s DKG Newsletter to learn more about the wide variety of enhancements, updates and new releases that we have slated in the realm of AI and Data Science-driven Big Data Analytical Systems on Longevity and DeepTech Industries.
Expansion of UAE Branch
From November 18-25 2022 DKG embarked on a strategic trip to the United Arab Emirates, undertaken by DKG General Partner Dmitry Kaminskiy, Head of the Group’s UAE branch Baha Hamadi, and Head of Deep Knowledge Ventures Suisse Stefan Hascoet, as part of an ongoing expansion of its Gulf region branches and its ongoing mandate to deepen, strengthen and intensify its DeepTech-focused activities in the GCC, and for the purpose of convening several high-level meetings between DKG top executives and high-calibre policy and decision makers.
A particularly notable outcome of the trip was the official launch of DKG’s Gulf Region Big Data Analytics System and Dashboard, a first-of-its-kind AI-driven analytical tool to profile, map and generate insights on the entire digital ecosystem across GCC countries, provides automated tools for intelligent data-driven DeepTech decision making for investors, corporations, and governments.
The trip also featured the launch of Deep Knowledge Analytics’ latest report, AgriTech in the UAE Industry Landscape Q3 2022, co-published with Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park (SRTIP) as part of the company’s ongoing partnership with the UAE-based R&D hub.

Sheikh Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, Sharjah Research, Technology, and Innovation Park (SRTIP) aims to develop and manage an innovation ecosystem that promotes Research and Development and supports enterprise activities and the triple helix collaboration of industry, government, and academia. Some of the previous milestones achieved as part of Deep Knowledge Analytics partnership with SRTIP, established just one year ago in November 2021, include the launch of the world’s largest ‘healthy ageing’ database, a conference co-hosted with the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi, a ‘Wealth is the New Wealth’ Tech Talk with SRTIP, and a jointly published Life Science Industry in the UAE Landscape Overview that DKG launched last year in collaboration with SRTIP.
Deep Knowledge Group remains committed as always to developing and deploying reliably sophisticated and multidimensional Big Data analytics and AI driven technological forecasting and benchmarking of DeepTech, Longevity and related industries, pioneering the fundamental tools required for strategic decision making in these unprecedentedly complex and innovation-driven sectors, laying the foundation and basis for defining, thinking about and understanding the coming DeepTech Revolution. However, more than this, the Group remains just as decisively committed to the practical execution of many of these forecasted developments by establishing the core investment and financial industry infrastructure (platforms, indices, exchanges, financial instruments and derivatives) needed to execute the concept of DeepTech and Longevity Financial Commoditization. The pursuit of this truly ecosystemic approach, and the integral fusion of sophisticated analytics with investment, internal entrepreneurship and financial industry activities to stablize, optimize and accelerate DeepTech and Longevity industry development, is the foundation and basis for DKG’s commitment to ensuring that all necessary components of the 5th Industrial Revolution are in place before the year 2030, and its mission to do as much as possible to personally and practically pave the way for its emergence. What’s next? Stay tuned and subscribe for further updates on these and other, related topics of interest in our upcoming newsletters.
