A call to virologists and immunologists worldwide

March 26 2020/1 min read

Hello, my name is Luka Crnkovic-Friis and I am the CEO of Peltarion, a Swedish AI company. We provide a platform that allow people who are not AI experts to build and deploy cutting edge deep learning AI applications. Apart from our product we also have one of Europe’s strongest research and applied AI teams and we want to put both to the service of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Artificial intelligence in general, is an extremely powerful technology but its full potential only comes to life when paired with extensive domain expertise in the field where you want to solve a problem.

If you are a virologist, epidemiologist, medical researcher or working with something related to COVID-19, and have data and an idea that could help in the struggle against this pandemic, please get in touch with us and we will support your work. We will give you free use of our platform and hands-on help in every step of the process of turning your idea into something that makes a difference.

You can reach us at ai-help@peltarion.com
