EDIA education technology was founded in 2004 and based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 2006, EDIA launched its first AI product for education, which used machine learning and natural language processing to curate online text sources for vocabulary training. The product won several (international) awards and is still widely used today.
The founders of EDIA envisioned that smart automation would play a significant role in the content creation and publishing industry. As modern web technologies rapidly enabled personalized learning at scale, this also revealed an urgent need for truly adaptive content.
EDIA then developed its artificial intelligence engine created specifically for education publishers. It automates metadata-tagging so that content managers can search, curate, reuse and create smart content.
“AI has transformative power. We want the education industry to benefit from the technology the same way that other industries have”.
Currently, the company is owned and led by the original founders, Jaeques Koeman, CEO Co-founder and Roland Groen, CTIO and Co-founder. EDIA has a team of more than 30 talented professionals who dedicate their time to work on AI. For nearly 15 years, provided a wealth of experience with AI in education, EDIA now finds itself in an unique position to share those experience, the lessons learned and our insights about AI with a broader audience.
