About the company
The company has a simple vision to make AI as easy to use and accessible as possible by making AI independent from big data and heavy computing resources. The company therefore plans to democratize AI and make it available to everyone, not just giant companies.

The company is a pure technology driven AI startup that is focusing on creating original and game-changing technology for different industries. They are working with clients from diverse fields including autonomous driving, drones, surveillance and manufacturers.

The company has developed it’s own original deep learning algorithm which is able to function without the use of pre-training models and can outperform other widely used algorithms in terms of tradeoff of accuracy, speed, and network size.

The company has also developed an original detection/recognition algorithm which differs from industry standard machine learning based object detection and recognition algorithms in the sense that it is the world’s first learning-free algorithm which can recognize an object with only one or a few samples.

The company is also developing innovative AR technology which is able to remotely control and communicate with objects through laser pointers.

Corporate Culture
The company is still small with less than 10 employees but the company is made up of experts in their field. Team members on average have about 15 years experience related to machine learning and computer vision. Most employees come from a team which has developed a well known and successful computer vision product.

The company values flexibility and work life balance. They have a flextime system in place allowing employees to work in a way that suits their lifestyle and they provide a generous amount of paid days off.
