Our expertise

Our company is firmly rooted on an experienced multidisciplinary research team with combined expertise lying at the intersection of mathematics, operations research and computer science. Our business model builds upon three pillars:

AI Technology

We engineer solutions in Natural Language Processing at every layer of the AI pipeline. From the architecture and training of models to the optimization methods for efficient learning, we strive for innovation and performance.

Analytics & Knowledge Transfer

Our goal is to build innovative and customized applications to meet our partners’ needs in Artificial Intelligence by turning all interactions into business value.

AI as a Service

Our focus is to assist our clients on the development and refinement of their existing models and procedures. Unlike traditional consulting services, we seek to generate joint intellectual property with our partners creating value from artificial intelligence applications.
