Paris, 8th April 2019 - Six months after being named VP of AI Research at Meero, Jean-François Goudou will represent the scaleup at European AI Night 2019. He will be giving a talk at the night in Paris on 18th April to explain how Meero’s artificial intelligence technology is used in their pioneering photo editing work and high-scale visual content production
Jean-François Goudou, VP AI Research of Meero
Meero managed to completely automate photo post-production in just 30 months by incorporating artificial intelligence into the editing process, reducing the time it takes to process images to a few seconds when it previously took professionals several hours to achieve the same results. That’s why Jean-François Goudou has been working at the head of a team of engineers and AI researchers at Meero to transform cutting-edge AI technology into powerful, automatic photo-editing products.
Meero is developing several advanced technologies for content enrichment, and has particularly invested in photo editing and data extraction. Unlike simple filters which apply global adjustments to the image, Meero’s algorithms are able to edit photos precisely in several seconds and still give a professional final rendering. This type of work is long and tedious when done manually, and can take large amounts of time.
Backed up by 2 fundraisers totalling $63M, 540 employees and 6 offices across the globe, Meero has made AI a major tool in photo editing. Speaking alongside key players in AI such as Google Cloud or even Microsoft will be a chance for Jean-François to defend Meero’s growing place in the tech market and make this scaleup an undeniable leader in global AI.
Founded in 2016, Meero aims to revolutionise the world of photography by allowing photographers to dedicate themselves to their passion. From providing revenues and market research to invoicing, post-production, and delivery, Meero takes care of all the laborious, time-consuming tasks which plague the industry.
Meero also solves a major problem in the world of photography: photo editing. Normally 60 minutes of actual shooting will take up to 4 hours of extra post-production work. The cutting-edge content enrichment technologies the company is currently developing can reduce this time to a few seconds, solving the problems of long delivery times, inconsistent photo rendering and unfair prices.
Meero further gives artists the chance to work with major brands and take advantage of a whole range of solutions that simplify their work and make the production of beautiful images far easier.
These innovations allows big brands to access tailor-made photo and video content from anywhere in the world. Meero manages the photoshoot process from beginning to end, guaranteeing unbeatable prices, delivery times of less than 24 hours and a regular, professional photo quality
