About Neurons Lab

Who we are? Neurons Lab is a cloud network of scientists, engineers, and developers passionate about revolutionizing businesses’ future with AI and machine learning technologies.

When we founded it, we had an essential idea to marry two worlds. On the clients’ side — to help socially responsible organizations to boost their performance and achieve a strategic advantage by tailor-made ML solutions. On the consultants’ side — to give an opportunity for the bright individuals to work as independent experts that enjoy life and work freedom alongside taking responsibility for important challenges.

We focus on the two major industries — healthcare and industrial IoT. Through the first one, we make a positive impact on human lives, wellbeing, and longevity. Through the second, we help industrial companies to be more efficient, reduce energy consumption, and cut the emissions that harm our environment.

Essential moments about us:
— “self-management” and “responsible” — we value your freedom and lifestyle and don’t put unnecessary limitations on the work process
— focus on specific industries through an AI lens — we value efforts put in the deep research and experience and want you to keep pursuing this without being distracted on the “full-stack” requirements.
