WE ARE SILO.AI

The story of Silo.AI began in the afterglow of the global financial crisis in 2008. Peter Sarlin and his research group built a machine learning model to detect systemic risk and macro-financial instability. They created Netrics, an AI risk quant for identifying bank distress that outperformed all existing systems, and has since been onboarded by central banks and regulators globally.

In early 2017, Tero Ojanperä, Ville Hulkko, Kaj-Mikael Björk, Johan Kronberg and Juha Hulkko united with Peter Sarlin under the flag of Silo.AI to bring cutting edge AI talent to the use of private, public and non-profit organisations around the world.

WE’RE A PRIVATE AI LAB THAT

BUILDS AI FOR PEOPLE.

AI for People defines what Silo.AI stands for. We want to build a world with safe human-centric AI that frees the human mind from manual labour and empowers human creativity. We believe that this is possible by accelerating human-machine co-operation for collective intelligence.
