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 like-minded individuals. The ultimate goal is to deliver virtual assistants to all industries, enhancing all departments.
The AI of the future arrived early: Meet James™.
