AI Models

For your business

Who we are

ellamind GmbH specializes in the development of custom-tailored, application-specific AI models with the option for “on-premise” deployment. With our solutions, you can automate the processing of your private or highly sensitive data without it ever having to leave your own network. Furthermore, our models allow complete independence and data sovereignty and can significantly outperform the performance of generic AI models for specialized applications.

Our founding team has developed some of the most advanced and widely used open-source AI models in the German-speaking world and has also attracted international attention (including several top-10 placements in the global “Open LLM Leaderboard” and the first working Mixtral implementation). We stand for rapid and advanced development of state-of-the-art AI models and pipelines and will continue to openly share many of these advancements through DiscoResearch.

Our partnership with the JAAI Group enables our team to reliably implement even large and demanding projects.
