Andreas Berre Eriksen, founder of Ambolt AI elaborates: “Ambolt AI started out with a vision of bridging the gap between the research world and the business world because we saw huge potential in the commercial use of AI. As Danish pioneers in applied artificial intelligence, we feel compelled to help support the students who will be helping shape the Denmark of the future.
Ever since we were data science students ourselves, we’ve dreamed of doing something that helps people. We really felt we’d achieved that when, a little over a year ago, users of the Norwegian ‘Helseboka’ – developed by Ambolt AI and run by two Norwegian doctors – topped the million mark. Today, we’re up at almost 2.9 million users.
The success we’ve achieved since our student days is inextricably linked to our education as data scientists. The foundation of our success was laid not just by the professional competency surrounding applied AI but by the university community, too, hence our desire to give something back to the study environment where we ourselves thrived. So we thought about what we would have appreciated when we were at university.
The result was the Danish AI Championship for students”.
