Toronto, Canada. December 5, 2017. Adastra Group has acquired a 50 percent stake in Blindspot Solutions, specialists in artificial intelligence and machine learning. This latest acquisition reinforces our leading position in the fields of information management and digitalization.

 “Joining forces with Blindspot Solutions is a big step into the future for us; it is a strategic move to complement our existing portfolio of digitalization and information management services,” says Pavel Kysela, CEO of Adastra CZ. “Thanks to this acquisition, we are now at the forefront of many fields, ranging from data warehousing, business intelligence, the Internet of things, and big data to artificial intelligence, machine learning, and developing mobile applications. Together, these form a comprehensive suite of services that will help our clients become market leaders in the imminent digital revolution.”

In the four years since its inception, Blindspot Solutions has already implemented dozens of projects for startups as well as for established corporations both in the Czech Republic and abroad. It has worked with the German organization TÜV SÜD, the American startup LookingGlass, Czech Socialbakers, the Danish enterprise LogPoint, and Italian DFLabs, among others.
