About us

Ox Intel formed as part of the Hacking 4 Ministry of Defence postgraduate program in the department of War Studies at King’s College London. Based in the US, we work with senior stakeholders across the US and UK intelligence communities to design, develop, and deploy our technology.


Ox enables users to structure, track, and improve their decision-making, enlisting machines as partners in the process.

analytical framework

Users and teams create frameworks for different types of repetitive decision-making and analytical processes.

feeDback mechanism

Users evaluate the performance of their decisions, refining and improving their frameworks based on data.


Ox identifies repetitive processes that can be automated to assist and augment human capabilities.


Analytical tasks are allocated more effectively, increasing efficiency while improving decision-making performance.


Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

I believe Ox Intel’s technology represents a true game changer in intelligence, recognising the opportunity costs in failing to collect essential data that will optimise human judgements. Not only does Ox have the potential to solve existing problems, it will reinforce analytical rigour, streamline the evaluation of intelligence, and inform future priorities. I hope to see usage of Ox expanded across Five Eyes, strengthening intelligence sharing with our allies.

The Ox model challenged my initial outcome expectation, helping to remove selection bias as the decision process moved forward. The tool allowed me to pressure test my hiring decision, challenging the process, and leading to more rigorous outcomes.
