About us

Making AI Beneficial

We believe artificial intelligence (AI) will make a clear impact on our lives. 

Just as the advent of the Internet lowered the barriers of global transportation and communication, 

just as smartphones have tremendously changed human lifestyles, advances in AI technology will be another great shift for humanity. 

 

However, the development of AI technology has just begun. 

AI technology still requires significant progress, and there are many obstacles to tackle in order for AI to make a difference. 

We are business-savvy technicians, who have experience not only in developing AI technology

but also in applying state-of-the-art technologies to real-world services at global companies.

 

From our experience, we know what "obstacles" we need to overcome to apply AI technology to businesses. 

We aim to share our experience and tools for the rapid application of AI technology,

and thus to make AI more beneficial to our lives.
