There has never been a better time to indulge in the science and technology of Artificial Intelligence. We are a group of people who love what we do. Our founders have a wealth of experience working on various ground-breaking products including self driving cars, AWS AI services, GMail, Google Docs and flash storage systems. Backgrounds include key roles at Google, AWS, Uber, founding team of a startup which had a billion dollar IPO, and degrees from IIT, Stanford and Dartmouth. We are looking for talented backend software engineers, machine learning software engineers and research scientists to be part of the founding team.


What is machine learning? Software derived from data

#artificialintelligence

You've probably encountered the term "machine learning" more than a few times lately. Often used interchangeably with artificial intelligence, machine learning is in fact a subset of AI, both of which can trace their roots to MIT in the late 1950s. Machine learning is something you probably encounter every day, whether you know it or not. The Siri and Alexa voice assistants, Facebook's and Microsoft's facial recognition, Amazon and Netflix recommendations, the technology that keeps self-driving cars from crashing into things – all are a result of advances in machine learning. While still nowhere near as complex as a human brain, systems based on machine learning have achieved some impressive feats, like defeating human challengers at chess, Jeopardy, Go, and Texas Hold'em.

Uber Buys a Mysterious Startup to Make Itself an AI Company

#artificialintelligence

Uber has acquired Geometric Intelligence, a two-year-old artificial intelligence startup that vows to surpass the deep learning systems under development at internet giants like Google and Facebook. But as this tiny AI lab slips into Uber's increasingly vast and ambitious operation, the startup is still tight-lipped on what its technology actually looks like. Founded by New York University psychologist Gary Marcus and University of Cambridge professor of information engineering Zoubin Ghahramani, Geometric Intelligence spans thirteen other researchers culled from across the academic world. Fourteen of the startup's fifteen employees will move to San Francisco, where Uber is based, serving as the central AI lab for the ride-hailing company. Ghahramani, the mathematician most responsible for the startup's core technology, will remain at Cambridge while spending half his time working for Uber.
