Our Mission

We are believers in automation and efficiency, and we see Artificial Intelligence as a toolbox that will allow us to automate more of the growing list of tasks that no longer require human-level cognition.

In our ideal world, much of the mundane and repetitive tasks that humans are responsible for today will be safely and effectively delegated to machines, leaving us humans with more time to imagine, create, and innovate.

We are Backed By
