Artificial intelligence firm opens U.S. headquarters in McLean
Omina Technologies provides an AI platform, consultancy and training program.
Belgium-based artificial intelligence platform developer and educator Omina Technologies has opened its new U.S. headquarters in McLean.
Financial terms of the headquarters have not been released.
Founded in 2016, Omina currently has an office in Miami. North America CEO Brian Alexander said in a statement that the company decided to locate its North America headquarters in Northern Virginia because of the number of tech companies in the area.
“The area is rich with diverse high-tech companies and several companies in our core industries including banking, insurance, and telecommunication,” Alexander said. “80% of internal AI projects are failing due to lack of AI knowledge on which business problems can best be solved with AI and due to the difficulty in recruiting AI experts who are in high demand. Hence, there is a big need for helping companies to understand how they can reap the fruits of internal AI projects. That’s where we come in.”
Omina caters to small and mid-sized companies. Its portfolio includes Omina Consultancy (AI strategy), Omina Platform (self-service platform for domain experts) and Omina Academy (educate and train in AI).
