Company description

Sophia is an innovative leader in contextually aware enterprise search solutions building products that enable organizations to intelligently discover knowledge from unstructured content based on context so that it can be recovered, consolidated and optimized. This enables organizations to seamlessly search, extract, de-duplicate and eliminate redundancy of content to minimize compliance risk, increase findability and reduce the cost of storing and managing enterprise information.

Unlike traditional search solutions that rely on an expensive and limited taxonomical approach, Sophia uses its patented Contextual Discovery Engine (CDE) to automatically understand meaning and identify intrinsic terms, phrases and relationships within content.

Established in 2007 by Dr. David Patterson from the University of Ulster (Northern Ireland) and Dr. Vladimir Dobrynin from the State University of St. Petersburg (Russia), Sophia was the winner of Intertrade Ireland’s Seedcorn competition in 2009, beating 250 other companies to win the title of Best High Growth Company in Ireland.

It was privately funded in July 2010 by the largest Angel Investment ever made in a Northern Ireland Company and is currently expanding its business in the UK and growing it in the US market.

Sophia is headquartered in Belfast, Northern Ireland with sales offices in San Jose, California and an R&D base in St. Petersburg, Russia.
