With a $14 million seed round, Prem Labs emerges to democratize AI model creation, empowering businesses and individuals to train, deploy, and own their AI models.

Lugano, Switzerland, April 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In the wake of generative AI’s meteoric rise, nations and companies worldwide are mobilizing to harness this transformative technology’s potential. From enhancing product experiences to driving operational efficiencies, generative AI promises to reshape industries and unlock new frontiers of innovation. The global generative AI market was valued at $40 billion in 2022 and is projected to surge to a staggering $1.3 trillion by 2032 (Source: Bloomberg). A paradigm shift is underway, and enterprises are racing to secure a competitive edge.

This AI revolution holds immense potential but presents formidable hurdles. Traditional companies risk losing their intellectual property and expertise by relying too heavily on tech giants for critical AI functions. Within this landscape, open-source AI emerges as an alternative option. However, integrating and managing AI models introduces a new level of technology complexities, leaving many enterprises struggling to make tangible progress.

This strategic approach positions Prem Labs at the forefront of the AI landscape, primed for significant expansion within the European market and beyond.

“The integration of the Prem Platform has revolutionized our compliance management with its fine-tuning capability, enabling precise customization of AI models for the financial sector,” says Nicolas Espinoza, CEO of Grand, a subsidiary of Advisense, a leading European compliance group, and Prem’s key customer.

Prem Team and Research

Prem Labs boasts a team of diverse talents, each member contributing extensive technical expertise in artificial intelligence research and distributed databases. The team is led by founder and CEO Simone Giacomelli, who previously co-founded SingularityNET, the world’s first decentralized AI and blockchain network, which has achieved over one billion in market valuation. Furthermore, the team is working with the expert leadership of academic advisor Emanuele Carpanzano in collaborative research efforts with distinguished institutions such as the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) and the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI).

“Our vision is a future where every individual has access to powerful, private, and personalized AI models, ensuring the benefits of artificial intelligence are distributed equally and not concentrated within a few large corporations,” says Simone Giacomelli, founder of Prem Labs.
