The brains behind Iris AI

The Iris AI team first saw the light of day during Singularity University the summer of 2015.

We are from Finland, Norway, Bulgaria, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine and Germany, an odd mix of strong personalities and we have two things in common: a strong drive to have a positive impact in what we do, and a desire to solve really difficult problems.

“What you are thinking of doing is going to be really, really difficult. That sounds like fun. I’m in!”
