About us is a machine learning company at its heart with strong specialization on Natural Language Processing (NLP). Our team is made up of exceptional engineers and creative problem solvers that ever since are driven by the passion of solving real-world problems with technology.
Born in 2017, was based on the idea that the human language will be the interface of the future. Bridging the gap between humans and machines we enable everybody to Ask By AI.

When working with us, there will always be an substantial part of teaching included in our projects. We emphasize the importance of sustainable knowledge transfer to our clients.
Besides the love to solve problems using AI, we also provide guidance to our clients by explaining complex methodology in a very simple way - that is the part we are most excited about.

Jan Saputra Müller
ML Research Lead

Jan has been a Machine Learning expert and veteran long before media knew that this term exists. Starting with coding at an age of 8 years and deriving his own approximation formulas for π before going to high school, Jan lives and breathes technology and science. This path led him to work as a Machine Learning Researcher @ TU Berlin since 2008 as well as working as a ML and data science consultant @ idalab. Apart from ML, he has a passion for geometry and digital signal processing.
