History of Peltarion

Peltarion was founded in 2004 by Luka Crnkovic-Friis and Måns Erlandson who met whilst studying at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. They were both convinced that AI had the potential to redefine the definition of the industrial revolution. In 2006 they launched their first product called Synapse which was a Windows-based tool to help organisations design and train neural networks and was sold on a licensing model. In 2016 Luka and Måns started to build the world’s first operational AI platform which was launched in 2018.
