Taking machine learning to new limits.

Dessa’s mission is to stretch the limits of what’s possible with applied machine learning. We do this by building products for machine learning practitioners, and by developing projects that produce real-world impact with the technology.

Who we are

We’re a team of thinkers and tinkerers based in Toronto, a global centre for artificial intelligence.  Founded in 2016, we got our start building machine learning applications for some of the world’s largest companies. Since then, we’ve taken lessons learned building real-world ML to create Foundations, a suite of tools for machine learning development and production. 


Dessa also collaborates with organizations in areas like healthcare, astronomy, and education to use machine learning to tackle some of the biggest issues we’re facing today.

In February 2020, Dessa was acquired by Square.
