In the spring of 2016, EQT launched the Motherbrain AI engine. The bot is designed to find the next tech hit and will help the venture capital giant vet startups in Europe.
Since then, the company has used the model and one of those who worked with it and developed it is AI Profiler Wilhelm von Ehrenheim. Since last year, he has been the project lead but now he is leaving to work at QA.tech, a new startup.
“I have been working with AI for a long time, but we are only now beginning to see the breadth of solutions becoming possible,” he said in a press release.
“QA.tech has a clear vision of how AI can be used to make the entire development process more efficient, and the potential is huge.”
The company, which recently closed its first funding round and subsequently raised SEK 11 million at a valuation of SEK 55 million when accounting for new capital (after money)has developed an AI-based testing tool that can find problems that a website may have.
Fix tests automatically
The tool is actually an automated testing tool that checks various functionalities on a web page. The hope is that it will save programmers a lot of time.
“Wilhelm is one of the country’s leading AI experts, and I am very pleased to have him join us,” he says. Daniel Mauno PetersonCEO and Co-Founder of QA.tech.
“The ambition is to expand the team in order to release a beta version of our tool in the spring as we already have around twenty companies that want to test it. Wilhelm will have a central role in this work.”
Vilhelm von Ehrenheim now joins the company’s founding team as Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer.
“I’ve always loved building things and EQT Motherbrain was a startup, where we went from three people when I started to almost 40 people today,” says Wilhelm von Ehrenheim.
“I look forward to taking the same journey with QA.tech and building a new world-class AI team.”
