Learn more about our company and our technology.

For a disease-free future for everyone.

We believe in a disease-free future for all of humanity and create AI technology that uncovers unknown patient needs and generates the deepest possible understanding of how humans suffer from diseases. Through Artificial Intelligence we can learn from the global patient experience for the first time in full scale and provide patient-centric guidance for new therapies and to improve the quality of care for billions, one disease at a time.

We would like to get to know you.

We would like to invite you to get in touch with us. We are a tech company – but moreover, we are a bunch of people who deeply believe in a future without diseases. Therefore we work hard and passionately, but more importantly we would like to spread the word that our technology really can help our society.

We guide you to get a better understanding of us.

As our technology is not always easy to understand we invite you to talk with us. So please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are looking forward to meeting you.

Your Press Team of Semalytix.
