Abzu is an applied research startup founded in February 2018 with offices in Copenhagen, Denmark and Barcelona, Spain. Our vision is to develop a technology capable of delivering the promise of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).
Abzu was born from a desire to rethink some of the basic assumptions on which contemporary AI systems and research are based. Taking inspiration from self-organizing systems in nature, we are building a system that lifts some of the critical constraints that we believe are holding AI back.
The current team, that together has a wide and diverse range of skills is distributed between our offices in Copenhagen and Barcelona. In the next few months, we are planning to hire new talents to join our endeavour and help us to achieve our ambitions.
Would you like to be part of a startup doing cutting edge research in Artificial General Intelligence and work alongside our data scientist to help make use of the data they collect and finally deliver key data science projects for Abzu clients?
