Our humble community started to stay on top of the mountains of ML papers. We’d nerd out every other week (in-person!) talking about interesting ML papers we’d had come across. The mailing list grew to 400 people by the end of the year.
We incorporated “aggregate intellect” with the ultimate goal of “automating scientific discovery”. Based on the demand of our community, we created lots of educational packages, then started shifting towards how we could enable the applied side of ML.
Welp, 2020! Few months before the Pandemic lockdowns, we left our corporate jobs to focus on our venture. We thought more deeply about scale, the industry impact of ML, and R&D in general. We capped off the year with a small fundraising round raised through our community.
We moved away from education and started exploring an AI Innovation Marketplace. We ran ML development crowdsourcing competitions with startups and other entities, and used those engagements to learn more about gaps in the market.
We used the insights from our rigorous experiments & design sprints in 2021 and identified a gap in knowledge management market. We started building a software platform that used AI to help engineering teams build better and faster
After ChatGPT release we saw a rapid increase in demand for software like ours, we went back to the drawing board and re-imagined our platform. Importantly, we pivoted towards building for traditional businesses with many manual workflows
