We want to build technology that is genuinely useful, that solves real problems and that makes a positive economic and social impact. We think the best way to do this is to help innovators in businesses and institutions around the world to create intelligent products, that can learn, so they work better and better over time. Forward-thinking organisations, in almost every sector, see the potential of machine intelligence to create new business opportunities, to deliver better customer service, to accelerate innovation, to improve people’s lives.
We want to support innovators using our technology to help create new breakthroughs. That means we don’t just want to sell into big companies, we also want to support the start-ups, the research labs and the universities where interesting work is happening.
We want our technology to be available, accessible and easily modifiable so that anyone with a smart idea can use it. Our aim is to be open and to share best practice within our community so that people come up with even better ideas.
We are serious about our technology. We are serious about helping our customers make products that are more intelligent. We take our responsibility seriously too. We believe AI has the potential for enormous positive change, but there are plenty of issues that are still to be resolved and we want to take an active role in these discussions and engagements.
We are also serious about enjoying our work. We believe that creativity and innovation comes from a combination of hard work and collaborating with a diverse group of smart people who challenge each other and who are allowed to be themselves.
When you look at where machine intelligence is heading, it becomes clear that progress depends not on old hardware technology but on a completely new computing platform, designed from the ground up for intelligence.
Being intelligent means listening so that we can work out what needs to be done, learning how we can help and how we can make something that is useful. Working together with partners whenever we can and helping them to be successful will, in the long run, improve our technology and allow more people to benefit from AI.
