About us

Caius started as a group of friends who, through their university research, saw that they could create innovative products using scientific data and Artificial Intelligence learning models. At the same time, we were actively involved in hiking and exploring nature, so with Metsovo and the Region of Epirus as our base, our first product was born, initially as a research project, to explore with an intelligent tool the trails that exist in our forests!

Meet our Team

George Mendrinos - CEO
Business Operations, Go-To-Market Strategy

Through his work in the downstream space industry business sector and his studies in computational physics (and as a researcher at NCSR Demokritos), he is able to seamlessly combine satellite data to create innovative B2B AI products. His love and involvement with the community in the rural areas of Greece (as a resident of Metsovo) and as a mentor in digital social innovation give him the ability and will to act as the driving force of the team, dealing with team orchestration and long-term strategy, finding the right partners and product features to meet real market needs and solve important social problems in rural areas such as sustainability, lack of ecotourism, underemployment, no technological training, and lack of young people.

Stathis Efstathopoulos - CFO
Business Analysis & Investments

Professor of Medical Physics and Vice Rector of the University of Athens. Furthermore, he is President of the Executive Committee and Chairman of the M.Sc. Programme “Nanomedicine” and has his own research group applying AI techniques in medical physics. In addition, he has founded companies (HSnanoHS, Health Services and Solutions) that combine research and market in a pioneering way for Greek standards. He is the mentor of the team on research commercialisation and one of our company’s strongest networking agents.

George Michas - CTO
AI & Big Data Processing - Analysis

An experienced researcher in big data systems, especially in the field of satellite geodata. He is an expert systems engineer focusing on efficient design/implementation of deep learning systems, starting from data loading and preprocessing to optimal model configuration for complex tasks. In this way, he provides compact deep learning systems that can load huge amounts of data and use fully exploited models that make full use of the available resources, resulting in impactful results. He is the head of the technology department with a wide range of responsibilities focused on the research and software development of our products. Some of these responsibilities include overall software architecture, data storage and processing, deep learning and project management of the team.

Marios Glytsos - Head of AI team
Deep Learning & Satellite Data Processing

An accomplished electrical engineering graduate, he excels in deep learning, audio systems, and particularly in the application of AI to multispectral and geospatial data. His expertise includes advanced proficiency in GIS and the development of AI segmentation algorithms for detailed analysis of land areas, paths, roads, and the cascading effects of disasters in Earth observation projects. He has demonstrated a remarkable ability to integrate AI techniques for environmental monitoring and urban planning, contributing to innovative solutions in disaster response and sustainable development. An enthusiastic hiker and nature lover, he immediately integrated into the team as a friend and collaborator sharing the same vision. In the last few years he has been involved in several AI projects in both practical and research contexts, focusing on Computer Vision, Visual Common Sense Reasoning, NLP and Music Genre Recognition. His role in the team is to develop the AI models and contribute to the full stack development of the applications.

Alexia Kontou - Product Design Manager
Ecosystem Analysis, Marketing Strategy

Alexia, with her academic background in Αgriculture and specialization in Animal Production Agronomy, forms the basis for Caius' constant involvement in local rural development, particularly in the primary production sector. With her parallel professional involvement in the promotion and tourist development of such practices, she has the experience to develop these areas with the most modern means, thus giving Caius the opportunity to combine four of its most promising sectors; AI, satellite data, tourism and agricultural industry.

Nikos Pyrenis - Communications Manager
Client relations, Green Initiatives, Market Analysis

In addition to his extensive research in the downstream space industry (as an automation engineer), where he has been deeply involved for the past few years, linking it to sustainability, his experience in rural areas of Greece serves as a valuable bridge between technological solutions and local communities. He is involved in the generation and evaluation of various specialized satellite and geomorphological data for the training of neural models, while also fine-tuning the automation process of internal databases. He monitors Caius projects and schedules, provides technical and public relations support, manages communication with our external partners and keeps both sides informed.

Petros Efstathopoulos - CDO
Remote sensing and GIS research, Testing Analyst, Database Management & Optimization

Τhough he is a graduate student at the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics of the University of Patras, his research focuses on remote sensing and GIS applications in environmental monitoring, providing access to relevant data, which he then automates the process of processing and storing in order to have the fastest possible response to physical changes in the areas under consideration, but also the most economical values.
