Swiss company Business Investigation SA, creator and developer of the GPS analytical platform for major applications based on artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), has launched its sister company in Tallinn. The branch will be covering sales and service in the Baltic States, the Nordic countries and in Central Europe. In addition, the Swiss company is moving its research and development centre to Tallinn, thus creating dozens of jobs for top AI and ML specialists over the coming years Business Investigation SA (BI) lists the competence found in Estonia and its well-developed e-state ecosystem as the primary reasons for moving here. “In addition, we are certainly interested in looking for future cooperation opportunities with Estonian government agencies that are known to be the most digitally advanced institutions in the world. The development of our GPS application, based on artificial intelligence and machine learning, integrated within the Estonian excellent platforms would certainly be mutually beneficial,” said the CEO of Business Investigation, Bruno Ciroussel hinting at company’s interest in leveraging from cooperation with Estonian government agencies.
With headquarters in Gland near Geneva, Business Investigation’s GPS platform development is a cooperation with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and the School of Business and Engineering Vaud in Yverdon as Business Investigation’s founders and main shareholders Bruno Ciroussel and Marc Lecoultre are artificial intelligence and machine learning professors in those world renowned top-level universities. The technology marketed by Business Investigation has been in development for almost ten years, and the company has reached the stage of product development that allows to present its business case globally. To date, Business Investigation has expanded to France, Germany, Italy, Chile, Egypt, Tunisia, India and China. Tallinn will now be taking a central role in this network as Business Investigation’s IT development centre, where GPS – their core product - will be developed in the future.
Lecoultre explained that “GPS is an AI-based solution which uses machine learning for analysing work processes helping to optimise them and decrease a company’s or government agency’s costs as well as energy and time consumption”. The function of GPS software lies in forecasting scenarios and identifying linearities in processes and flows, providing its users with information that supports more rational decision-making.
“This year, we are looking to hire between twelve to fifteen people in Tallinn and recruiting here will definitely continue due new markets and rapid growth,” Lecoultre expects.
