Our Vision

Our aim is to provide the benefits of Artificial Intelligence to enterprise customers globally through Knowledge Automation.

It is our principal belief that the ultimate value of AI is to collaborate with people to automate the urgent but low value routine tasks and free up time to focus on more rewarding and challenging innovation work. Leading to a greater sense of worth for the individual and true value creation for employers. 

It is also our belief that the benefits of AI are not obtained by replacing human workers but by increasing their potential, which is the essence of Knowledge Automation.

Our Journey

From an investment in over 10 years of research into General AI, we launched the first version of Knowledge Automation in 2010 for its internal IT Operations. Having overcome the limitations of Expert Systems and other rules based scripting engines, our Frankfurt based research and product teams then launched the first commercial version in 2013 for IT Operations. 

Following an investment from KKR in 2014, development of HIRO was accelerated and Knowledge Automation support was extended across all processes and industries as a SaaS product. With the addition of industry standard APIs and developer tools, Knowledge Automation and the core AI engine are now available as a platform for developers and partners to develop entirely new knowledge based businesses.

Chris Boos has a mission: to empower human potential and create time for creativity and innovative thinking through artificial intelligence (AI). Its mission: The existing limits of AI technology to build a general AI. Since then, Chris has positioned AI HIRO™ as a platform for companies to reinvent their business models in the digital age.

But his ambitions go far beyond that: Chris firmly believes in the integration of machine thinking and machine learning and constantly challenges the current thinking on AI. As a strategic business and policy advisor and angel investor, Chris’ diverse involvement in AI makes him a well-respected speaker and thought leader on issues of global importance, such as the human-machine relationship and the way societies deal with information and the future of work.

Chris Boos studied computer science at the ETH Zurich and the Technical University of Darmstadt. His ongoing research focuses on graph theory, machine thinking and machine learning. He currently sits on the board of several companies and is a member of the DigitalRat, where he advises the Chancellor on digital policy and AI issues.
