As Novac/Jozo Vrdoljak writes, The team of the world’s most popular mathematical application (app) Photomath was recently made richer by the arrival of Marko Velic as the leader of the team for the development of artificial intelligence. Marko Velic has very extensive experience in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and the application of machine learning. He has worked for the Facebook Machine Learning team in the British capital of London for the last two years, while before that he was the head of the machine learning team at Styria.AI for four years.

With the acquisition of Marko Velic, Photomath has confirmed its intention to attract a growing number of renowned engineers, web and mobile application development experts and those from the field of machine learning. Since developing the app back in 2014, the company has grown to over 100 employees, while the number of users has exceeded an incredible 220 million.

”I’ve been following Photomath for years and I know that it has all the prerequisites for success – a top product, an exceptional team and an excellent understanding of the market and business. Since the field of machine learning in solving mathematics is still insufficiently researched, Photomath is an ideal ”playground” for research and work in the field of artificial intelligence,” said Marko Velic of his move, who is previously known to the Croatian tech and business public for his achievements in the field of artificial intelligence, for which he received his doctorate. He is also the author of several patents.

Damir Sabol, founder and CEO of Photomath, added that the main factor in their global success is having extremely talented employees who are alwas eager to learn more in a stimulating atmosphere.

”Our ambitions continue to grow and our goal is to invest in the development of artificial intelligence technologies that will be the foundation for hitherto unimaginable learning application possibilities. Bringing in Marko Velic from Facebook is a significant step towards that goal, as well as the future acquisition of top AI engineers here on the Croatian market,” concluded Sabol.
