Dany Bolduc, cofounder of SenseAI, appointed head of Bases.ai’s Montreal research and development office
Lévis, May 23, 2019 — Bases.ai, a company acting as the missing link between theory and practice in industrial artificial intelligence, has today announced the signing of an agreement to acquire the company SenseAI Technologies, Inc.
Founded in 2017 and based in Montreal, SenseAI has developed a powerful software and hardware solution for hybrid data acquisition (cloud and edge computing) capable of being integrated with the various protocols used in the industrial sector (Modbus, BACnet, etc.). The company also designed powerful modular wireless smart sensor that can collect industrial data without having to replace the existing equipment.
“Data is at the core of any machine learning project. With SenseAI, we can solve this key part of the AI business equation while opening the door to numerous opportunities for innovation,” emphasizes Martin Bouchard, cofounder of Bases.ai.
“The SenseAI team is excited to join Bases.ai to develop our platform and expertise,” adds Dany Bolduc. “This agreement will combine Bases.ai’s expertise in the applied artificial intelligence sector with our in-depth knowledge of connected devices for the industry sector.”
The definitive purchase agreement is planned to take effect by June 30, 2019.
With first facilities to be built in Lévis, Bases.ai wants to act as the missing link between theory and practice in artificial intelligence. It will provide companies with the opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art experimentation bases that will enable them to develop, test and integrate solutions based on applied artificial intelligence. Specialized infrastructure, such as workspaces, test rooms, industrial robots as well as supercomputers, will be made available to partner companies.
These experimental bases, developed in the main regions of the Quebec province, will ultimately have a major impact on the entire Quebec business ecosystem by promoting the use of artificial intelligence in an industrial environment.
