Unleashing the power of AI

We are a team of dedicated people located in Copenhagen, Denmark and we are on a mission to make the manufacturing of drugs and medical devices more efficient by the use of Artificial Intelligence. We believe that AI has the power to significantly change the pharmaceutical and medical devices industries for the better and to support the delivery of higher quality.

At Criterion AI, we are building a full-featured platform to accelerate the adoption of AI in the manufacturing of drugs and medical devices. Based on our experience with working with pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers, we have built a platform that drastically lowers the barriers for getting started with AI while making sure that all regulatory requirements are being implemented.

Organizations we work with

We are actively engaged with a range of the world’s leading organizations in the fields of artificial intelligence and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

We partner with Google Cloud to leverage their leading technical infrastructure to serve our platform and the AI models we train on it. Criterion AI is hosted by Google Cloud Platform and, through our partnership with Google, we run co-marketing campaigns and execute on joint go-to-market strategies in the Nordics and Benelux.

We actively participate in the community surrounding the Neural Information Processing Systems Conference (NeurIPS), which is the world’s leading conference on Artificial Intelligence. We have presented at the conference twice—last in 2018 where we brought a demonstration of our platform to the Conference’s Demo Track.

We are a member of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering and participate regularly in both local chapter events and international conferences.

We are a member of the Parenteral Drug Association and we most recently spoke at their 4th Annual Meeting in Europe. Contact us to learn more about our talk there.
