About Us

Square Factory is an enterprise AI-as-a-Service (AIaaS) company whose purpose is to make AI available and affordable to any company in the world, in a sustainable way. We achieve this by providing highly specialized services and technology solutions that enable businesses to create and implement data-driven strategies, automate data analysis and safely leverage artificial intelligence, at low costs.

Square Factory traces its roots to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), where a group of highly-skilled computer sciences post-graduate engineers was inspired to make artificial intelligence available to any company.

Becoming involved in the Alpine Tech project, a Swiss leader in computational power services, the core team became experts in commercial GPU data center setup and optimization, cryptography and machine learning. Alpine Tech further expanded into blockchain-based services, including crypto mining.

Subsequently, the team went on to found two separate companies.

2017

Alpine Intuition – a company providing highly specialized research and consulting services around AI and Data management which eventually built iSquare, a fully automated platform to deploy and host AI models.

2019

Cohesive Computing – a company specializing in deep learning and high-performance computing that launched csquare.ai, a highly efficient ML/DL Training Platform built from the ground up
on a dedicated cloud infrastructure and HPC clusters.

2020

Seed round of CHF500k raised by Alpine Intuition, was used to accelerate business and product development. The Advisory Board was appointed and Sergio Giacoletto was appointed Chairman of the Board.

DeepSquare Association – the HPC hardware infrastructure business of csquare.ai is spinned off into a token-backed, decentralized HPC cluster association, allowing csquare.ai to focus entirely on its software platform solution.

2021

Square Factory gets created from the merger of Alpine Intuition and Cohesive Computing. iSquare re-launches as an end-to-end, unified MLOps platform allowing data scientists and engineers to easily build, train, deploy and monitor AI, ML and DL models.
