    About the employer

    We’re a team of scientists, engineers, ethicists and more, committed to solving intelligence, to advance science and benefit humanity.

    Our story

    We’ve always been fascinated by human intelligence – it shaped the modern world we live in today.

    Intelligence allows us to learn, imagine, cooperate, create, communicate, and so much more. By better understanding different aspects of intelligence, we can use this knowledge as inspiration to build novel computer systems that learn to find solutions to difficult problems on their own.

    Like the Hubble telescope that helped us look deeper into space, these tools are already expanding human knowledge and making positive global impact. Our long term aim is to solve intelligence, developing more general and capable problem-solving systems, known as artificial general intelligence (AGI).

    Guided by safety and ethics, this invention could help society find answers to some of the world’s most pressing and fundamental scientific challenges.

    We’re solving intelligence to advance science and benefit humanity. At the heart of this mission is our commitment to act as responsible pioneers in the field of AI, in service of society’s needs and expectations.
