Title: The journey from convolutional neural network to real customer value
Biography: Andreas Greilhuber
Anyline.com is one of the most promising AI companies in Europe. Founded in 2013 – Anyline teaches smart phones reading. The start was a specific use-case and customer need to read the blood sugar devices for diabetes patients – a clear need and customer pain with a solution to bridge the analog and digital world with the smart phone camera. The solution was patented. We were struggling what to do next with our patented solution and decided to develop an offering for the utilities industry. Similar to the blood sugar devices there are more enough analog and digital electricity, water, heat and gas meters around the world. Even compelling events like the European smart meter roll-out existed, but where is the real customer value of a vertical integrated solution powered by AI and why B2B customers shall pay for. Step by step we evolved our business model from solving mobile app developer’s pain to use AI based technologies like TensorFlow to the right vertical integrates solutions for law enforcement, automotive, border control and finally developed a successful product and solution approach to generate the funds needed to further push the AI adoption together with our customers.
