Our Story

Who are we?

Artificial Researcher is an information technology company and a start-up in the text mining industry. AR-IT was founded by TU Wien alumni and entrepreneur Linda Andersson together with her sisters Jenny Andersson and Nina Andersson and fellow researcher Dr. Florina Piroi.
In 2018 we launched the product idea ‘Artificial Researcher in Science’ which received the Commercial Viability Award from the Austrian Angel Investors Association. This was also when Dr. Wolfgang Sachsenhofer got involved and is supporting the co-founders with his expertise in corporate venturing and technology commercialization.

We are the co-founders: Linda Andersson, CTO and co-CEO, Dr. Florina Piroi, Project Manager,  Jenny Andersson and Nina Andersson, CFO and co-CEO.

What do we do?

AR-IT provides industry and academia with unified platforms that increase the productivity of end-users, by exploring and implementing innovative text mining technologies based on over 15 years text mining know-how. AR-IT sets out to provide the growing, but financially strained, global scientific communities with one of the key ingredients for excellent research and development work locally.

AR-IT has received funding for two research prototype projects 'Artificial Researcher in Science' supported by Vienna Business Agency and 'Artificial Researcher in Open Access' supported by Austria Wirtschaft Service. We will within these prototype projects develop novel and innovative scientific knowledge management systems, including patent data for AR-OpenAccess, tailored to the needs of information search professionals, researchers and students. 

Additionally, AR-IT provides consulting services and software development solutions for smaller projects to industry partners producing real-world AI text mining applications.
