Mission & Vision

DeepVA simplifies AI. We provide a platform for the analysis of visual data and an easy entry to Artificial Intelligence making modern image and video recognition as well as AI customization so intuitive that it completely disappears in the background.

We want to improve people’s lives and help businesses innovate faster throughout the world to open up their full potential. Every media company should be able to experience the benefits of the latest AI technology to reduce workflow complexity and back decisions based on meaningful insights. We dedicated ourselves to the most intuitive, efficient and connected AI tools.

The start of the journey

The Chainless was founded in 2018, when Christian Hirth, Frederik Böhm and Esther Arroyo Garcia realized the huge potential of AI for media companies.

The combination of Chris’ background in the film and gaming industry, Freddy’s technical affinity and Esther’s continued work for agencies, production companies and publishers laid the foundation for a well-positioned team and a diverse company culture. In the last couple of years, they started to build up media industry expertise and initiated various contacts to important players from the media industry.

Also in 2018, Chris, Freddy and Esther were co-founders of the German AI Association which is one of the most influential networks for AI and Deep Tech companies in Europe.

Our Philosophy

Here at DeepVA, we think that employee wellbeing goes hand in hand with the results of our work. Thus, we value a friendly atmosphere with flat hierarchies and are convinced that this philosophy has played a major role in our success to date. We appreciate a healthy balance between work and life, but also fully support our employees in their personal development. Every team member’s input is encouraged, and we strongly believe in diversity and empowerment as a core value to shape our startup. We always take our time to help each other out, also on non-work-related matters. Your profession is important, but so are family, friendships, and happiness!
