About

OKRA Technologies is a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven analytics for global life sciences.  OKRA delivers suggestions, predictions and explanations to empower life sciences executives and operational teams to drive the right drug, to the right patient with humanised and understandable AI outputs.

Our story starts in 2007, when our CEO Dr Loubna Bouarfa researched how artificial intelligence could be used to predict surgical error in real time. She applied her research directly to the operating table – alerting surgeons to potential errors in order to prevent them, and producing the most cited study in this field. OKRA Technologies was born out of a vision to apply this accuracy of prediction on a wider scale.

And the name? OKRA means “ladies’ fingers”, which is no coincidence since our female CEO coded much of our tech with her own hands.
