We're currently incubated at DTU, with plans to spin out independently by 2025. We're developing a sophisticated AI solution to analyze conscious and unconscious relationship patterns, and leveraging novel research from DTU on emotion recognition and machine learning technologies. With our first prototype in place, we're now gearing up to develop our Minimum Viable Product (MVP) through a 6-month project.

We're seeking a skilled Data Scientist to lead our data science strategy. Whether you're a student eager to dive into real-world projects or an experienced professional seeking a new challenge, we're open to connecting with individuals who share our passion for leveraging data to foster meaningful relationships. Compensation will be offered on an hourly basis and/or in equity, depending on the candidate's experience and commitment.

Key Responsibilities:

🧹Preprocessing: Clean and format data to ensure usability, including tasks such as noise reduction in audio, text normalization, and video frame extraction.

📝Feature Extraction: Identify and extract meaningful features relevant to relationship analysis, such as tonal qualities, facial expressions, phrases, or keywords.

📈Analysis: Apply statistical, machine learning, or deep learning models to derive insights into relationship patterns, sentiment, and emotions.

🤔Interpretation: Make sense of analysis results and translate them into actionable insights for stakeholders.

Timeline and Application:

We're aiming to kick off the project by April 1st, 2024, and will be conducting interviews on a rolling basis. We look forward to hearing from you if you are eager to delve into the world of relationship coaching with us.

Our Impact:

We support the 2024 Strategy to combat loneliness announced in May 2023 by the Danish Parliament and the National Partnership Against Loneliness.

Loneliness is a critical and often underestimated contributor to individual and population health, community safety, resilience, and prosperity. Loneliness impacts our mental health (correlated to anxiety and depression) and can be as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day - leading to a 26% increased risk of premature death.

We acknowledge the urgent need to address the alarming 58% increase in loneliness since 2013 in Denmark alone. A trend which is estimated to cost our society 7.4 billion kr. annually through lost societal cohesion, prosperity, and increased costs of mental and physical care.

Public welfare alone cannot effectively address the situation; it requires mobilization from civil and private society as well. We provide an innovative solution that utilizes technology to overcome key obstacles in taking early preventive measures in adult relationships as a primary source of connection and belonging in adult life.
