OUR VISION

We can build a smarter planet. Not just for some. But for everyone.

Through continuous research and development, we are constantly thinking about the possibilities of tomorrow while creating practical applications for the problems of today.

OUR MISSION

AI is for everyone.

Building a vision is one thing, creating a new reality is another.

We believe in continuous learning, continuous improvement and AI for all. That’s why we fight against data monopoly. Data should belong and be governed by those who create it. In establishing the trust in how our data is collected, maintained, shared and used - we place the value of data in the hands of the many instead of the few. We know we can make a positive impact on people’s lives by bringing AI to the masses and empowering creators and entrepreneurs to innovate, intelligently.

We can build a smarter planet. Not just for some. But for everyone.

Let’s boldly go forward. Together.
