Iwan’s decision to become co-founder of Aaron.ai roots in a fascination for the possibilities of applied algorithms. He explored the interconnections between algorithms and our environment with a double diploma in applied mathematics and theoretical physics. After some years of managing IT transformation projects with an IT strategy consultancy, he co-founded Aaron.ai in close cooperation with the artificial intelligence department of the Humboldt University – focusing on bringing intelligent automatic voice interactions to companies of all sizes.
