The largest private AI lab in the Nordics takes the next step on its growth path and extends to Finland’s third-largest city, Tampere! With several clients and employees in the region, Silo AI strengthens its presence in the area that’s also home to many leading industrial companies.
Thanks to its university and strong ICT and industrial sectors, Tampere offers great potential for innovation with novel technologies, such as computer vision and machine learning, as well as a superb pool of top-notch AI talent. With plans to expand to a team of 15–20 people this year, Silo AI’s current Tampere team of almost 10 experts includes among others Lead AI Solutions Strategist Kai Knuutila, a long-term digitalization and technology professional, Lead AI Solutions Strategist Mika Aho, PhD, an experienced enabler for data & AI strategy and digital transformation and AI Scientist Katariina Mahkonen, PhD, who has extensive experience in industrial ML and especially in analyzing time series data.
Silo AI’s Executive Chairman Tero Ojanperä , former Chairman of Tampere University of Technology, has been an active member in Tampere AI ecosystem since its beginning.
“It’s been a pleasure to see Tampere grow into one of the most important nodes for senior expertise both in industry and academia. We’re looking forward to further expanding the value AI creates in the region,” Ojanperä comments
“Tampere is an interesting location due to its strong industrial focus. The region is well aligned with the industry segments we’re focusing on, including Industry 4.0, smart cities and smart vehicles” says Peter Sarlin, CEO of Silo AI.
Teppo Rantanen, Executive Director, Growth, innovation and competitiveness, Smart City leader, City of Tampere, says:
