Have a question that isn’t answered here? Get in touch with us.

What are you?

We are a nonprofit AI-for-science research lab in San Francisco. Our mission is to build AI systems that can scale scientific research and accelerate the pace of discovery, so humanity can proceed as quickly as possible to find cures for disease, solutions for climate change, and other species-accelerating technologies.

Nonprofit? Why?

We’re trying to solve science. We don’t want to get distracted doing B2B SAAS along the way.

How are you funded?

We’re primarily funded by Eric Schmidt, but we have a bunch of other supporters as well. If you're interested in supporting us or helping us expand our mission, contact us at

How old are you?

We launched in September 2023. You can read our public announcement from November here.

How big are you?

We have somewhere between 10 and 20 people, depending on when this was last updated.
