Who we are

SpinningBytes AG was founded in February 2015 by Mark Cieliebak, Martin Jaggi and Fatih Uzdilli. It is a joint spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH) and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW). The main goal of the company is to build a bridge between research and industry and to develop solutions for automatic text understanding, based on machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence.

With more than 40 years of combined experience in software development and numerous scientific publications, our team today consists of highly knowledgeable experts in machine learning, data mining and software engineering. We develop state-of-the-art software for text analysis, which can be integrated into existing software landscapes of companies of all sizes and industry backgrounds, without the data having to travel through foreign channels and being exposed to security and privacy risks.
