Today Silo AI, one of Europe's largest private AI labs, has announced a strategic partnership with Combient Group, solidifying its mission to increase European competitiveness by accelerating the adoption of industrial AI.
As part of the partnership, Silo AI acquires Combient's AI subsidiary Combient Mix and, therefore will become the largest pure-play AI company in Europe with 300+ experts, around half of whom hold a PhD in computer vision, language technology, machine learning or other relevant fields.
The two companies will continue to serve Combient's associated companies, strengthened through Silo AI's world-class AI expertise and the industrial application expertise of Combient Mix.
Peter Sarlin, CEO and co-founder of Silo AI reviews the partnership as a natural step towards building a European AI flagship, asserting:
"What Marcus Wallenberg and Mats Agervi initiated in 2015, with some of the strongest Nordic companies, has now become Nordics' leading cross-industry collaboration network."
Silo AI also plans to continue the close collaboration with research partners such as WASP (Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program), and leading universities while advancing the development of large language models (LLMs) and applicable tooling to build trustworthy, robust and reliable LLMs through Silo AI subsidiary SiloGen.
Tero Ojanperä, Silo AI's Executive Chairman and co-founder, says:
"Entering the generative AI era, Europe must establish a critical mass in AI. This unique partnership harnesses cutting-edge AI research, a proven AI-driven product development history, and the robust industrial strength of the Nordics."
