AI solutions

for the world's largest data problems
Merantix’ mission is to act as an artificial intelligence laboratory for its clients and to help them incubate, build and grow new solutions and applications using deep learning on the edge of scientific research.


At the Merantix Lab we leverage artificial intelligence, deep learning and computer vision to tackle problems in a wide range of fields from health to banking and way beyond.

Digital Health

Imagine, if based on predictive analytics on millions of patient records, diseases could be spotted earlier and thus treatments could start sooner.

Compliance & Regulatory

Regulatory and compliance requirements for banks and insurances have grown tremendously not only since 2008. We want to help the finance industry to become safer.

Quality Assurance

QA is key for every single process in the industry. We help industry players to automate quality control measures by applying visual recognition. 

Bot Communication

Imagine if you could have asked your private banking bot “what happens if the Britains say yes to Brexit”. Stay calm and keep going, we’re working on it.

Visual Recognition

Take a picture of the plate filled with food in front of you and you’re told not only what kind of food you’re about to eat but also how much calories you can expect. Nice to have if you’re keen to control your weight, essential when you’re a diabetic.

Trading Signals

No, we’re not trying to build an oracle. But we believe we can elevate analysts and traders by providing them smarter insights and hints.

Product Recommendation

Tired of searching and filtering gigantic lists of products? We’re helping eCommerce companies to better understand your needs and wishes. Maybe even before you know them?


Also tired of non relevant ads bullying you? We help publishers and advertisers to build an engine that automates and optimizes ad creation.

The story

In early 2016, Merantix founder Rasmus launched, a website utilizing artificial intelligence to predict age, gender and attractiveness of a person. The website was a showcase for some academic research and received a lot of attention and extensive press coverage. It attracted 1M unique visitors in the first 12 hours and in total over 100M photos have been uploaded to date.
