Amsterdam startup Scyfer has been focusing on cutting-edge machine learning techniques since 2013. The startup has already built AI solutions for companies worldwide and in a number of different industries such as manufacturing, healthcare and finance. This week, Scyfer, a University of Amsterdam spin-off, announced it has been acquired by Qualcomm for an undisclosed sum.
The city of Amsterdam will be the center of the rise of e-bikes in the summer of 2017, as startups FlickBike and Urbee promote their innovative bikes.
