Our Story

When developing our products, we often find challenges which are unanswered by current scientific knowledge. This is where the Priberam Labs come into play!

 

Our research team conducts applied and exploratory research in the areas of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. Every day, we deal with challenging and stimulating problems, and use our creativity to design systems that learn from the data.

Our goals are:

to advance the state of the art in scientific knowledge;
to transfer that knowledge to our products.
