Our Story – AI For Good

Our Story
AI For Good

The IMAIGE team is a passionate crew of technologists, A.I. scientists, entrepreneurial executives, researchers, and innovators in customer centric technology solutions.

IMAIGE, Inc. was created to enhance the human experience using AI for our collective good and started with a simple realization; our mobile technology makes it easy to tell our stories by creating huge collections of high-quality visual content, but we have no practical tools for managing all those photos and videos long-term.

Instead, our personal memories slip away in a torrent of new pics and downloads. Our valuable business content gets heaped and buried in clouds. And our environment suffers so that we can store trillions of photos no one can find.

IMAIGE is solving these issues now and for the future; with systems that take over those frustrating curation tasks and do them like you or the most trusted person in your business would.

At IMAIGE, we know our personal media tells our real stories and our business media records the heart of our commercial cultures. IMAIGE is bringing Personalized AI to market to ensure everyone, and every company gets the customized media experience they deserve.

We Put The I In A.I.

The Very Best In A.I.
