Sana is AI for learning
Since the foundation of Sana Labs in 2016, the founders have successfully established an exceptional team of over 30 specialists across tech, marketing and business development. Under their leadership, the Sana technology won all categories on all evaluation metrics at Duolingo’s global AI competition, proving itself to be best-in-world at prediction of knowledge gaps.
Sana's success is shown through significant milestones. Firstly, a closed study showed learning results increased by 15%, despite learners only spending 5% of their time on the platform. In another closed study with the world’s largest education provider, the Sana technology demonstrated an 80% proficiency improvement and 34% increase in learner engagement, versus 4-5% for typical benchmarks.
Most recently, Sana successfully leveraged personalized learning and was reconfigured to meet the increased demand in global healthcare due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In less than 1 week we: developed an operational strategy for mass reskilling of nurses into COVID specialists; signed partnerships with both Mount Sinai in the US and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden; and deployed our personalized platform to 80,000 new learners, while simultaneously servicing our existing learners. This was a major achievement that demonstrated the versatility and agility of our team to rapidly develop and roll-out world-class personalized learning at scale, impacting hundreds of thousands of individuals.
Over the coming years, Sana will power personalized learning for millions of learners around the globe.
