We built a tool for Innovate UK which automatically matched grant applications with potential assessors.
Innovate UK is the institution that funds technology and innovation in the UK. They receive thousands of applications per year for their grants, and need to direct these applications to independent assessors with the relevant expertise for evaluation. Performing this task manually is time-consuming and error-prone.
We built a tool for Innovate UK which automatically matched grant applications with potential assessors. By looking at past data, our algorithm learned to determine whether an assessor-application match looked reasonable, and was also able to identify duplicate submissions.
