BrainCreators was founded by three friends in 2016. We studied Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam together way back in the nineties. We moved into different fields of specialisation: data and knowledge representation, computational psychology and logic, but remained friends ever since. It was way too early to create end to end solutions for businesses and consumers based on AI technology back then. So we pursued careers in other areas. Gerbert Kaandorp founded several companies including today’s leading banking portal provider Backbase, Jasper Wognum ran several startups and served in various leadership positions in online media companies like Hyves, TMG and Strawberries. Peter Eijk worked at lead developer positions for Hyves, Rocket Science and Strawberries.
In 2013 we went on an adventure together with LookLive.com. LookLive identifies clothing worn by celebrities in popular media aided by AI technology. We experimented with numerous technologies for machine learning, image recognition and knowledge representation. We started to see many opportunities for applied AI technology. When LookLive was sold it was time to broaden our horizon.
As BrainCreators we are finally doing what we’ve been preparing for since 1995. We let machines do the thinking!
