Ex-Head of Data, AI & Quantum Computing at OVHCloud, Jean Louis holds a Master’s Degree in Symbolic AI. Driven by a mission to simplify AI for developers, he built himself a chatbot to curate, classify and unify all AI applications in one store, enabling 13k+ model implementations to be classified in less than 4.5 years.
Jean Louis previously founded Madgency, a sports processes consulting agency which promotes web sport management systems. He also worked as the CTO Data for Auchan.
He spent a decade in the big data ML AI cloud industry frustrated by how difficult it was to get started. So he decided to make a product out of his frustrations! That is how Gladia was born.
Anna is a content strategist, specialized in multimedia content creation, branding, and digital marketing. She graduated cum laude from IE Law School (Madrid) and Sciences Po (Paris), where she majored in legal philosophy and media studies respectively. Her career spans AI, gaming, and XR industries. She’s passionate about innovation and design ethics. She fell in love with Gladia’s core team and its mission of making complex AI tech accessible to all.
Sami has joined Gladia as a Senior Software Engineer and has evolved to Engineering Manager six months ago. He graduated from a CS school called “42” and before Gladia was a Tech Lead for a Medtech company called TooBeeb and a Software Engineer for other early-stage startups. Sami decided to join Gladia instead of an already established huge company to have a chance to work on a growing tech that is AI. By joining Gladia, he wants to provide a plug-and-play experience to developers around the world so they can, from a single line of code, integrate state-of-the-art AI models without the pain of diving into the complexity of those.
Gladia was founded in 2022 with a specific goal: to make complex AI tools accessible to developers through plug-and-play APIs. Since then, its raison d'être has expanded beyond just developers to address a bigger need which has been identified in the market: Gladia believes that there is another way to work to unleash companies' full potential. Gladia's vision is to help companies become AI-driven.
Gladia’s first priority is then to facilitate the technical integration of AI by providing affordable plug-and-play APIs, which make it possible for private and public actors across industries to embed AI into their existing infrastructures with a single line of code.
Gladia helps companies build a knowledge infrastructure platform to connect all their internal text, audio or visual data and make it discoverable in real time through AI-powered semantic search and intelligent chats.
Gladia is convinced that all organizations should ultimately become “AI companies”, to the point where the term itself becomes obsolete in the upcoming years. The technology is ready for this tectonic shift to happen. Gladia is here to perform its ‘last mile delivery’.
Gladia is looking for different types of talents operating in tech, Sales, marketing or product development.
The most important for Gladia is to build a team of Gladiators around the same values such as benevolence, honesty and transparency.
What brings our Gladiators together is a common passion for the technological field but above all for the success that crowns the efforts. It is with the will to create this common culture that Gladia will be able to succeed.
