We are building AI that naturally weaves itself into the fabric of your life.

“As a technologist who cares deeply about the future of humanity and our planet, I have always believed that AI needs to be built for the benefit of humanity.”

Liesl Yearsley, Founder & CEO, Akin
1.

After founding companies with enterprise-grade AI systems, listing one company and having another acquired by IBM, I realized there was still work to be done. 

2.

We founded Akin under the shared belief that AI needs to evolve, and needs to be built to truly care about humanity’s wellbeing.

3.

It’s with this shared belief that Akin has launched AI systems for space missions, solved core issues in generative AI, all while continuing to build AI solutions.

AI for good

We don’t just talk about Public Benefit AI, we do it. We have modeled out how humans could work in harmony with ecosystems in space, and applied this to actual measurement of AI for good. Our clinical trials on Wellbeing AI align with Government Policy. Building AI for good, we work with prestigious universities, clinical partners and an expert advisory board.
