Vision has many meanings: the ability to see, something that you imagine, or something that you dream.
We imagine a world where AI enables humans to do their most meaningful work. We dream of a time where technology unleashes the power of human intelligence, not replaces it.
We know that others believe differently, but to quote William Blake, “god forbid that truth should be confined to mathematical demonstration.”
Technology is a celebration of human innovation. It is best applied when it inspires the human mind.
That’s our vision: AI technologies and humans working together to inspire our thinking and to drive better outcomes for all of us.
