Building AI-powered apps at the speed of thought

Ideas can, and should, come from anywhere. But not everyone has the technical knowhow to transform them into practical, scalable applications fit for the AI-age. Databutton’s guided platform featuring AI-assistant, Databutler, allows everyday people to build and share interactive web apps from their browser. Early use cases include chatbots that help people with diabetes, and sleep apnea, an AI assistant that recommends products on a gardening site’s webshop, a real-time trading app, an app that automates marketing blog posts, and more. And they are just getting started.

Democratizing the data science discipline

Founders Trygve Karper, Martin Røed, and Viral Shah witnessed firsthand the struggle scientists and analysts go through to turn ideas into practical tools. In a bid to stop technical knowledge or skills from getting in the way of innovation and creativity, they founded Databutton in 2021. Since launching into beta in January 2023, the platform has registered nearly 4,000 users who have built almost 5,000 web applications and counting. With the new funding boost, the team aims to finetune Databutler and move ahead with a full launch later this year.

Databutton’s AI-assistant developer, Databutler, guides users to build interactive web apps in minutes – using either their own datasets, or by connecting to a growing catalog of sources, models and integrations such as Open AI’s GPT-4, Streamlit, Langchain’s language model app framework, and more. Their web-based platform powered by the widely used Python ecosystem helps users to deploy the code easily.
