About Xayn

Xayn is the private search and discovery engine for the internet. The fusion of a search engine and a discovery feed focuses on privacy, personalisation and intuitive design. Using the latest AI technology made in Europe, the company of the same name ushers in a new generation of user-friendly privacy tech. 

The AI company started as a research project at The University of Oxford and Imperial College London by Leif-Nissen Lundbæk (PhD) and Professor Michael Huth. Together with Felix Hahmann, they founded the tech company in 2017.

To this day, that academic vision remains with a workforce comprised of around 30% PhDs. The company also developed XayNet, the open-source framework for Masked Federated Learning.

The Berlin-based company has received investment funding of 19.5 million EURO from Global Brain Corporation, KDDI Open Innovation Fund, Earlybird as well as Dominik Schiener. Xayn has worked with corporations such as Porsche, Daimler, Deutsche Bahn, and Siemens.
