We are creating an ecosystem uniting collective intelligence, artificial intelligence, and community to help practitioners and companies build products faster and better.
With the latest advancements in natural language processing, we are at a unique point in the history (of humankind) where we can computationally analyze our knowledge and accelerate the process of innovation.
In 2018, Amir and Xiyang met while separately pursuing ways to use AI to build more impactful products and solve bigger problems. They built a community that started locally but very quickly scaled to a global platform.
Today, the platform brings together practitioners, experts, researchers, and more who are tired of searching, and want to start building!
Our platform aggregates the intellect of expert users and leverages AI to create the ultimate knowledge distillation solution. In other words, it brings together a global community of AI practitioners who use our AI-powered platform to learn and build collaboratively.
Our humble community started with 10ish people gathering every other week nerding out while talking about interesting ML papers they had come across. The mailing list grew to 400 people by the end of the year.
Amir and Xiyang finally incorporated “aggregate intellect” with the lofty goal of “automating scientific discovery”. Based on market demand, the goal slowly shifted towards education and the more applied side of ML.
Well, everyone knows what happened in 2020! The Pandemic and lockdowns forced the team to think more deeply about scale, and the industry impact of ML, and R&D in general, and capped the year with a small fundraising round.
This year has been all about bringing everything we’ve been building together, the NLP-based core tech, the community, the Marketplace business model to de-risk product development for startups, and more to come…
