Iris.ai – Your (delocalized) Science Assistant

Iris.ai is a Norway based AI startup founded a bit over 3 years ago at Singularity University with
the broad goal to make science easily accessible and open to everyone. As the world has more
scientific knowledge than ever, and it has become virtually impossible to keep up with and
navigate it manually, we are building AI powered science assistant tools that help researchers
with efficiently finding relevant research for their research problems. Teams using our current
tools are consistently outperforming their peers relying on conventional search tools, and have

successfully reduced their required time for systematic research field mapping studies from several

weeks to a few days, while upholding or even increasing precision. The ultimate (and ambitious)
goal is to build an automated science assistant that can fully read and understand scientific content,

reason from it and arrive at new insights. We are furthermore strong proponents of open science
and run several projects to make science open for everyone.

 

By now we are an international team of 20 people scattered over 9 countries. I will also tell a bit
about how I came to join this awesome bunch of people, what my role is in the research team
and what an average work day looks like for me.
