WHO WE ARE

Our Story

DeepMetis was born in Berlin following ambitious and hot discussions on deep technologies such as AI and Quantum Computing and the significant role of such technologies for the society and our planet. So the idea turned into action and DeepMetis was founded with a great ambition to soon become a leading purpose-driven tech venture in Europe and the world.

Our Philosophy

One of our motivations to bring DeepMetis into life was our concern about the lack of purpose in the tech industry and the geographical distribution gap in research and development of deep tech scientific works in the world. We lay our focus on tech solutions that bring a positive impact to the world and make those ground-breaking  applications available to more than a handful of businessmen and experts.

OUR PROJECTS

Explainable AI for NLP

We are experimenting with using Layer-wise Relevance Propagation for building a "Smart Highlighting" service to support researchers in conducting medical studies.

Learn More On Medium

Optimization in Logistics

We used Reinforcement Learning to approximate solutions for the Vehicle Routing Problem and thus help reduce Carbon Emissions in Logistics.

Quantum Computing for Gradient Estimation of Black Box functions

Our team is evaluating the readiness of commercially available Quantum Computers for applications in Management Science.

Reinforcement Learning and Graph Neural Networks for Approximating NP-hard problems

Graph Neural Networks are a fairly uncommon technique in Machine Learning which lends itself to this application as many NP-hard problems can be represented as graphs.

Increasing the stability of Deep Learning Algorithms

Generative Adversarial attacks are a technique allowing the attacker to abuse the patterns the model uses for making predictions to lead the model to a false conclusion. Often it is enough to change a tiny fraction of the input to lead the system to a false prediction.

Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning for Public Policy in Crisis

Due to the relevance of the Covid-19 pandemic we are exploring technical means of supporting government officials in deciding on what policies are most efficient in dealing with and predicting outcomes of crisis.

Our Work

RESEARCH

We go the extra mile answering questions about the challenges, opportunities, risks and potentials of deep technologies. We implement independent research projects in collaboration with reputable research institutions, universities, authorities and private ventures. We aim to find answers that solve real-world problems.

EDUCATION

Deep technologies such as AI and Quantum Computing are changing the present and shaping the future. We share our expertise in these areas with everyone willing to learn how to utilize most recent innovations, deploy real-life solutions and integrate all of that into their strategies.

BUILD, TRANSFER &
OPERATE

Our team of researches, developers and experts works on building, operating and transferring solutions for our partners in the public and private sectors. For a given order, we develop the solutions, test, and  hand them over. We make sure that those solutions will benefit everyone.

CONSULTING

Many organizations struggle to cope with the rapid technological advancement and fail to identify the resulting opportunities. With our tech expertise combined with the domain-specific knowledge of our clients, we develop concepts to solve real-world challenges and create use-cases using most novel innovations.
