WE’RE A PRIVATE AI LAB THAT

BUILDS AI FOR PEOPLE.

AI for People defines what Silo.AI stands for. We want to build a world with safe human-centric AI that frees the human mind from manual labour and empowers human creativity. We believe that this is possible by accelerating human-machine co-operation for collective intelligence.

Humans will remain at the center of most industries

The way
we work, however, will change

People and machines collaborating is more powerful than automation alone.

Elevate employees from routine tasks to more complex, higher value creating tasks.

AI can make sense of unstructured data, be it free text, speech, images or video.

The role of AI is to propose the best course of action, and to learn and improve from feedback.
