We link your experience with artificial intelligence

We are a spin-off from the Chair for Artificial Intelligence at Technical University (TU) Berlin. By participating in a research project on industrial quality control  with partners from science and industry, we became aware of the great potential of automated solutions and decided to develop a QC system, combining cutting edge technology from machine learning, computer vision as well as deep learning.
