Why we do it

Our goal is to transform organizations everywhere, no matter what they do for a living, with the world’s best conversational AI.

To achieve our ambitious goal, we’ve built software that excels at being user friendly, while remaining infinitely scalable and complying with strict privacy and security regulations. None of the above would matter, however, without our conversational AI’s unique ability to understand the end-user’s questions and accurately interpret them into actionable outcomes.

Our strengths are what make us unique and the reason we firmly believe in our vision - boost.ai, transform the world. They are equally essential to our mission: release human potential through artificial intelligence.

After 20 years of implementing technical solutions, I can finally say that I’ve found a product that has given more energy than grey hair.

Our story


A little bit of history

Back in 2013, towards the end of his master’s, Lars Selsås was contemplating his dissertation. He couldn’t quite resolve how to finish his degree without publishing the code he’d been working on. So he didn’t.

Lars left university, moved to Silicon Valley and began working for some of the world’s leading AI, machine learning and natural language technology companies, absorbing invaluable business insight at the same time.

Three years later, he returned home with his unique - and now refined - source code. An entrepreneur at heart, Lars had the acumen to create a new and market-leading commercial solution in conversational artificial intelligence. All he had to do now was build a team and land the first client.
