MIT Quest Corporate

MIT Quest Corporate is a community of scientists from MIT and industry committed to developing next-generation artificial intelligence tools to solve urgent problems facing business, society, and the environment. We are experimenting with ways to transition from AI that performs specialized tasks at super-human levels to more generalized systems that are flexible, fair and transparent. We fund promising ideas that we think can be implemented at scale and create positive and lasting improvements in people’s lives.
