How We Work

How we can help you

AI Apps from vision to launch:

Your org has an idea for improving business with an AI app.  Our "Peace of Mind" package guides you through all the steps to develop your vision safely.   

Continuous Audit or Red-Team:

Your organization is built on reputation and trust, and you want an external audit of your AI app.  We combine a continuous audit and human red team test to monitor and measure your AI product.

AI Startups Roadmap:

For startup founders, we offer a DIY Roadmap to Responsible AI. This personalized strategic vision and coaching is a low-cost guide to best practices.  

Upgrade internal knowledge:

Build data protection culture and knowledge! We offer  bespoke coaching: strategic decision-making for leaders, and game-based training for developers and technical staff. 

Our approach has heart

What makes us different? 

We are more than a freelance AI development shop. We are your partner in building a safe and trustworthy AI product.

Rebecca Balebako

We don’t build things we don’t believe in. 


We respect ourselves, our clients, and the people whose data we are using and protecting. We offer and expect honesty and humility as part of core aspects of respect.   

Quality and process

We do work we are proud of and anticipate our clients will also be proud of the outcomes. We arrive at quality through clear processes and analysis.


Technology should be designed for everyone. We believe in building inclusive technology that takes into account the expectations and needs of people.


We work with clients who appreciate our feedback, pushback, processes, and experience.

Validate your vision

Responsible AI app development

Embrace the value of AI for your business while maintaining reputation and trust.

Deploy and Monitor

On-going tests and continuous audits based on metrics for safety, privacy, and responsibility.

Peace of Mind

You have a partner who understands your business goals and builds the responsible AI app you need.  

What Makes us Different

Like having an in-house AI governance team and engineers

Not just an AI app. We bring the framework, development, and continuous audit for a successful AI product. You bring the vision. We bring the peace of mind.

Safe foundations for your innovations

Validate the foundation so you can continue building safely. We use the process of the NIST AI Risk Management framework and EU AI Safety Act guidelines.  

Safe products, not code projects

We don’t build apps just to build. We see them through by providing metrics and continuous monitoring that will give you long-term confidence. 

Designed for you, the environment, and your budget

We design our apps specifically to consider the costs of large models to your budget and to the environment. When small models are better for safety, costs, and emissions, we use them. 

What others say about working with us:

M. Le Tilly - Privacy Investigation at Google

Rebecca is both a highly-skilled privacy engineer and a reliable manager.  She consistently provided relevant pointers and asked critical questions based on her extensive knowledge of current and upcoming privacy regulations and trends. She's capable of understanding complex systems quickly and applies a privacy lens systematically.  Working with her has been a blast and an amazing learning experience!

A. Wyeth - Tech Lead at Google

 Rebecca's data protection knowledge and ability to think through what was best for the user were essential to the success of our Privacy Red Team exercises. She helped us to identify and mitigate potential privacy risks, and she provided valuable insights on how to communicate our findings to get the best impact. 

 I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a data protection expert.
