The TruEra Story: United by Common Purpose to Improve AI Outcomes

The TruEra story began in 2014 at Carnegie Mellon University with Anupam Datta, a Professor of Computer Science and Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Shayak Sen, a PhD student. In the course of their research, Anupam and his team discovered gender bias in online advertising. However, they lacked the tools to explain precisely what caused the bias. Passionate about enabling effective and trustworthy artificial intelligence, Anupam, Shayak, and their colleagues dug deeply into the issue, creating a body of work on explainable artificial intelligence. Shayak’s hands-on experience with building and deploying machine learning models in the financial services industry informed the team’s approach. Operating on the thesis that explainability is key to guard against societal harms and to build higher quality models, Anupam, Shayak, and their team became part of a growing interdisciplinary community tackling these challenges and raising awareness about them in academic, regulatory, and public spheres.

In parallel, Will Uppington was experiencing a similar set of challenges. A member of the founding team at Bloomreach, Will was productionizing black-box machine learning models and algorithms in enterprises. Will was struck with the fact that data scientists did not have sufficient visibility to evaluate and improve model quality during model development and in production. When business users demanded explanations for unexpected model predictions, existing tools did not provide adequate answers.

Anupam and Shayak were introduced to Will by a mutual friend in late 2018. It was a meeting of minds. All three came together to form TruEra in early 2019 to analyze, improve, and build trust in machine learning models. By the autumn of 2020, the company emerged from stealth and today serves enterprises in multiple industries across the globe.
