In a groundbreaking development, Austrian AI scale-up Thinkers.ai has made significant strides in enhancing the trustworthiness of AI-generated knowledge, while also revealing its ambitious plans for international expansion in 2024. This move marks a pivotal moment in the realm of AI and its global applications, setting new standards in the technology’s reliability and market reach.
Vienna, Austria – Thinkers.ai, a leading B2B AI scale-up based in Vienna, kicks off 2024 with notable progress in the realm of AI trustworthiness and continues to build on this foundation for its international expansion. The company’s focus on combating the prevalent issue of “AI Hallucination” – where AI models generate convincing but factually incorrect information – has positioned it as a trailblazer in the industry.
As Europe’s only fully digitally sovereign web search engine, Thinkers.ai has made substantial advancements in addressing the challenge of AI Hallucination. The firm boasts a vast, spam-free web data repository, which, when processed through a series of AI models, significantly reduces AI Hallucination and boosts the trustworthiness of search results. This high-quality output enables new applications for AI and Large Language Models across various industries.
In 2024, Thinkers.ai is primarily focusing on expanding into additional European markets, with an eye on the English-speaking international markets, especially the United States. American companies, facing similar challenges in transparency and trust, echo the needs of businesses in core European regions.
The Journey of Thinkers.ai
Thinkers.ai’s story of expansion and internationalization is a natural progression from its achievements in 2022 and 2023. In 2022, the company received the “Europa-Staatspreis” from the Austrian Federal Chancellery for developing digitally independent technology. This was followed by an investment from EIT Digital, Europe’s largest ecosystem for digital innovations, in 2023
Meeting the Needs of Businesses
Founder and Managing Director Dr. Isabell Claus highlights the universal problem businesses face: “80 to 90 percent of the internet consists of spam, significantly limiting information transparency and complicating research.” Thinkers.ai, through its intelligent sequence of the latest AI models, elevates knowledge across sectors to a new level, bypassing this clutter.
Chief Technology Officer and C-Founder DI Wolfgang Ecker-Lala emphasizes the importance of reliable and trustworthy AI technologies in the current AI boom. “AI must generate secured and trustworthy information for people,” he states.
Aspiring to Match Global Giants
Thinkers.ai stands as Europe’s largest provider of web information. Its approach differs fundamentally from other global web data collectors like Google, Bing, Baidu, and Yandex. Dr. Claus explains, “We combine Large Language Models and other models to consistently exclude spam, enabling not only high-quality results and greater trustworthiness but also energy- and cost-efficient AI analysis.”
