Ramin Assadollahi was one of the first 20 people to study Natural Language Processing in Germany (University of Stuttgart, University College London). During his studies he learned that traditional computational linguistics as an aspect of artificial intelligence was too mechanistic and too rule-based and thus could not do justice to the organic nature of real human language and as a result switched completely to the cognitive neurosciences for his doctorate.
During his doctorate, he founded ExB Labs, a laboratory for the development of innovative speech processing products. In 2010, ExB sold text input technologies for 70 languages to the then market leader Nokia. Since then, ExB has focused on cloud-based AI solutions for the healthcare, insurance and automotive sector.
