What if there was a better way to work?

90% of our work lives in the cloud. We depend heavily on task managers like Trello, note-taking tools like Notion, and collaboration tools/repos like Github and Google Drive. As work proliferates across these platforms, data about what we’re working on and who we work with begins to aggregate.

This data is incredibly valuable from a productivity standpoint. Properly visualized and made navigable, we could use this data to do extraordinary things.

Imagine that instead of a resume, you send a prospective employer an interactive map of your specific skills and expertise.

At work, the endless stream of Slack messages and emails would be replaced by powerful, automated Q&A — as questions get automatically routed to internal experts based on their knowledge graphs.

In the office, knowledge graphs and search would be like a flashlight in the dark for new hires, drastically reducing the time it takes them to get up to speed.

Imagine, if you no longer had to wonder about what your colleagues were working on, how tasks were progressing, and were able to seize opportunities for collaboration whenever they came up.

What if, like social media companies use user data to customize your news feed, you could securely use your own work data to personalize your work experience and create a more productive and collaborative environment?

The future is here.

We’re using breakthrough applications of artificial intelligence and NLP to securely integrate with your productivity tools, and render interactive knowledge profiles — starting with Google Drive.

How we got here

We believe human expertise is the single largest black hole of non-searchable information. For companies, employee-attributed data that lives within productivity apps (Slack, Google Drive, Notion, etc) holds a well of insights that can be used to drive operations more efficiently.

To mobilize this data, we’re starting with knowledge graphs and natural language search.
