Pioneering research on the path to AGI

We believe our research will eventually lead to artificial general intelligence, a system that can solve human-level problems. Building safe and beneficial AGI is our mission.

Safely aligning powerful AI systems is one of the most important unsolved problems for our mission. Techniques like learning from human feedback are helping us get closer, and we are actively researching new techniques to help us fill the gaps.

Focus areas

We build our generative models using a technology called deep learning, which leverages large amounts of data to train an AI system to perform a task.
