Süddeutsche Zeitung: The Philanthropist

A summary of a German language article „Der Menschenfreund” by Elisabeth Dostert featured in the November 2015 issue of Süddeutsche Zeitung can be found below.

On his quest for a machine that creates solutions, Chris Boos, CEO of Arago, has been working on artificial intelligence for years. According to him, humans to date are still being used to do the same routine tasks every day. Tasks that can easily be done by machines. Chris explains that this way Arago’s product is able to give back time and space for innovation to humans. By using the reference to labyrinth, he elaborates on how Arago’s software works and how it can find solutions faster than a human being. According to KKR partner Philipp Freise, Arago with its intelligent IT automation is going to become the new ‘SAP’. In autumn 2014 KKR invested USD 50 million for 36 percent of the shares in Arago.
