Abzu® receives 1 million DKK grant for innovative, explainable AI.

Innovation Fund Denmark, which supports innovative ideas, established Innobooster People as a COVID-19 response grant to fund promising knowledge-based Danish start-ups. Funded companies must demonstrate a novel and innovative solution, business potential, a clear implementation plan and skilled team, and financial efficiency.

Based dually in Copenhagen and Barcelona, Abzu’s proprietary technology is solving for the current limitations in artificial intelligence. Despite media hype about applications of AI, most companies still struggle to derive tangible business results due to a lack of explainability and transparency. The single most common risk factor with the current generation of artificial intelligence is unexpected outcomes and predictions1, and without the ability to inspect and investigate models, there are alarming ramifications for performance, ethics, and privacy.

Abzu’s pioneering machine learning technology, the QLattice®, is the next generation of artificial intelligence. The QLattice is a high-performing quantum mechanics simulator that enables users to easily build and train explainable and transparent AI models, essentially eliminating the black box present in current AI models. Abzu’s proprietary innovation completely changes the way problems are solved by introducing traceable and shared insights and a new standard of interpretability.

This funding will be used for research and product development. Abzu is building towards Series A funding in 2021.
