From Silicon Valley to Stavanger: A creation of market-leading software

In 2013, after studying computer science at the university of Stavanger, Lars Ropeid Selsås moved to Silicon Valley - the global innovation capital - and began working with some of the world’s leading companies in artificial intelligence, deep learning and natural language processing.

He returned in 2016, with the unique knowledge to create market-leading solutions. Teaming up with his brother, Hadle, and Henry Vaage Iversen they decided to create a demo for SR-Bank. Making sure that their solution was at least as good as the ones currently in the market, they soon discovered that James was going to surpass them all.

With the first customer on board, Boost AI quickly gained a reputation for having the best virtual assistant. One year later, Boost AI provides solutions to Scandinavian banking, finance, retail, transportation, government and insurance - solutions that makes headlines while Boost AI grows at a record rate.

Now the company employs 40 ambitious individuals with the same goal: To deliver virtual assistants to all industries, enhancing all departments.

Lars Selsås, Hadle Selsås og Henry Vaage Iversen Hadle, Lars and Henry. The three founders of Boost AI.

"Our system with over 400 intents was built in just two weeks. The high quality of the system itself also impressed us. Our custom virtual agent is user-friendly for our employees and his ability to correctly predict the intents is outstanding."
