Our story

Ours is a story of a group of highly talented people that has grown steadily since late 2017, when our CEO, Ali founded Machine2Learn. After Qualcomm acquired his former employer Scyfer, Ali set out to realize his own vision. In order to implement Artificial Intelligence successfully, you need a strong, multidisciplinary approach. With this in mind, Ali, together with Tom, his former PhD promotor, gathered the very best data scientists, AI engineers and software developers in the business. Nowadays, our reputation and exciting projects help us to attract even more top talent from around the world.

Why we do it

We are all connected by our sheer passion for Artificial Intelligence, our determination to solve complex problems and our absolute dedication to customers. These are the very values of M2L and those of our individual team members. With instant success from the very beginning, Ali and our truly multi-cultural team of AI experts (meet them below) never looked back. From the very start, the company grew continuously. By the way, if you want to be part of our incredible team, then why not apply?!
