Hyperion Lab kicked off its third cohort of the Amsterdam AI innovation program and eight new startups (seven of which are Dutch) want to improve the world with AI.

Six of the participants focus on healthcare, such as AI applications for the heart, skin and the discovery of early-stage brain disorders. The program also includes a startup with cleantech for a circular economy. Hyperion Lab's goal is to advance society by making AI explainable and approachable.

The AI innovation program provides startups with access to technical expertise, coaching and computing power. Since its inception in 2021, the Showcase program has supported 17 AI (Artificial Intelligence) & HPC (High Performance Computing) startups that innovate in various sectors, from healthcare to smart cities and from machine learning to agriculture.

Sana Khareghani, Chief Strategy Officer, EscherCloud: "This third cohort of startups is hugely important. It embodies the daring and socially conscious personality necessary to solve big problems with smart and clean technology to move the world forward. We are proud to help these young companies and entrepreneurs take their next steps by sharing our network, and our knowledge, experience and computing power with them.”

The Hyperion Lab’s third cohort represents a new breed of startup, where accessibility, integrity and combating climate change are at the heart of their mission. Ethical and responsible AI is necessary for technology to contribute to this. EscherCloud and Nvidia facilitate the startups with ethical and green AI through the deployment of sustainable and advanced infrastructure.

Dealing with the climate crisis is playing an increasingly important role in the development of AI. With more computing power and capacity, the potential impact of AI is almost unlimited and can fundamentally and positively change the world. This is the vision of the new cohort, and this is what Hyperion Lab strives to achieve. The startups are:
