Humans will remain at the center of most industries

The way we work, however, will change.
ai for people
Collaboration over pure automation
People and machines collaborating is more powerful than automation alone.
Higher value creation over routine
Elevate employees from routine tasks to more complex, higher value creating tasks.
Bringing clarity to the unstructured
AI can make sense of unstructured data, be it free text, speech, images or video.
Keep learning and finding the right path
The role of AI is to propose the best course of action, and to learn and improve from feedback.

On a mission to bring cutting-edge AI capabilities to organizations

There’s a need for skilled AI scientists to contribute to real-world problems. Since 2010, part of the Silo AI team has been building AI solutions that have been on-boarded by organizations globally. Silo AI was founded in 2017 by Professor Peter Sarlin, ex-Nokia CTO Tero Ojanperä, ex-PwC CEO & Chairman Johan Kronberg, entrepreneur Ville Hulkko, Adjunct Professor Kaj-Mikael Björk and Elektrobit founder Juha Hulkko to keep and bring world-class AI talent to the region and help corporations implement cutting-edge AI.

In short, we set out as a trusted AI partner to assure that organizations in the region stay competitive at a time when AI is being widely adopted. We set out to make sure Europe has a flagship AI company.
