||Foundation of KIT-AR||Spin-out||KIT-AR||01-DEC-2018|
At UCL, I cofounded KIT-AR with other 4 co-founders. KIT-AR is a UCL & Sintef joint spin-out company (including UCL ownership through my IP shares) that provides a fully integrated industrial augmented reality (AR) system that increases manufacturing productivity through AI-powered workers’ mental wellness monitoring and improvement. This resulted from the EC Horizon 2020 HuMan project (with a fund transfer of €181,000 from HuMan to KIT-AR) and strong industrial partnership with Airbus, Royo and Comau. Since January 2019, we have secured multiple investments (over £1m in total) and contributed to the creation of over 10 new jobs in AI and AR.
