With Arya.ai, Aurionpro will significantly enhance its portfolio of enterprise fintech offerings to expedite the adoption of AI that is responsible, accurate, and auditable, aligning strongly with the rapidly evolving demands of Banks and Insurers.

Under the terms of the agreement, Aurionpro Solutions Ltd. will acquire a majority stake (67%) in Arya.ai.

By integrating Arya.ai’s cutting-edge AI cloud platform, with Aurionpro’s comprehensive suite of offerings, the company intends to create an industry leading Enterprise AI platform sharply focused on creating value for financial institutions globally.

Commenting on the acquisition, Ashish Rai, CEO of Aurionpro Solutions, stated,The acquisition of Arya.ai brings together Aurionpro’s portfolio of industry leading enterprise software with one of the most mature Enterprise AI platforms focused on the needs of Banks and Insurers. It also brings together probably the most talented enterprise focused AI/ML team in Asia with Aurionpro’s deep domain expertise and strengths to build highly differentiated Enterprise software. We are going through probably the most significant platform shift in the industry, and we are incredibly excited about working with Arya.ai and our wider ecosystem partners to build out the leading Enterprise AI platform, for the financial industry worldwide.”

“Making AI acceptable and scalable in financial industry is extremely different and hard. It is relatively easy to use a new AI technique like MLPs or self-supervised learning system and deploy the model. But to make it acceptable in a highly regulated industry like Banking or Insurance, it needs to be stable, reliable, explainable, auditable, compliant, and safe to use. Our decade long experience in building tools/platform for deep learning helped us to build a truly verticalized AI Operating System for Banking and Insurance. We’ve been growing 3x YoY in the last couple of years and have been profitable.” Says Vinay Kumar CEO/Founder of Arya.ai. “Together with Aurionpro, we are going to build a new generation of Enterprise AI software for Banks and Insurers that truly embed AI, augmenting a task or Autonomous Agents that can take over entire transactions”. 

Founded in 2013 by Vinay Kumar and Deekshith Marla from IIT Bombay, Arya.ai has been one of the first ‘AI’ startups to use Deep Learning and deploy in enterprises. Arya.ai’s PaaS offering for BFSIs primarily has 3 components: Arya API – models-as-a-service and DIY platform offering more than 80+ fine-tuned ML models specialized for BFSIs; Libra – Fune-tuning as a service platform offering multiple SOTA ML models that are optimized for various tasks in BFSI, and AryaXAI – a soon to be launched ML Observability and Alignment tool to provide off the shelf ‘AI’ governance for mission critical ‘AI’.
