The team behind

Project Aiur

Aiur is a project initiated by Iris.ai, a 3-year old international startup.

While we have proven success in addressing information overload and built-in biases for researchers, addressing the remaining issues of the research world requires additional effort beyond what the company can achieve on its own. To equip ourselves to succeed, we are launching Project Aiur.

Iris.ai was founded at NASA Ames Research park summer 2015. We found a common frustration with the access to and passion for the value of scientific knowledge, and as such Iris.ai – named after the Greek messenger goddess, bringing messages from the gods to the people – was born.
