Artificial Intelligence

Partnering with the founders who are building the intelligent future.

Overview

Artificial intelligence will transform every facet of how we work and live. Foundation models are creating a new set of paradigms for new product construction – models that can write, code, draw, and act on users' behalf. On top of these paradigms we also see the emergence of copilots for everybody – be it lawyers, accountants, or sales reps – that will help us work more effectively and efficiently. Perhaps most excitingly, we’re at the very early stages of this powerful transformation, and the underlying technologies are advancing rapidly. It’s an unprecedented time to be building the products and companies that will power our intelligent future.

Areas of focus include AI applications, AI Infrastructure, and Foundation Models.
