Team Members

Albert Stepanyan

CEO AND FOUNDER

Hey there, I am Albert, A.K.A. Cyberhulk. Coming from Military and tech background and having deep expertise in building tech businesses such as Develandoo, I decided to combine those skills and create Scylla - World's best gun detection system.

Ara Ghazaryan

TECHNICAL CO-FOUNDER AND CHIEF DATA SCIENTIST

I hold a Ph.D. degree in Optics and Molecular Physics. Over the course of 9 years, I have been a postdoctoral researcher at Munich Technical University, Pusan National University, and National Taiwan University. Being a physics guy with a background in optics and imaging techniques, I faced the problem of image analysis very early in my career, back at National Taiwan University, where I first built and then utilized optical systems that were aimed to address various biomedical diagnostic problems. The main challenge was first to learn how to distinguish images corresponding to pathogenic tissue samples and quantify compounds based on their optical features, followed by the even more challenging task of teaching the computer to do it automatically and even better than a human would do. All this experience, later on, came in handy, developing a sophisticated computer vision-based security suite called Scylla.
