Our Story

Robust Intelligence was founded by academics at Harvard in 2019.

We realized that our research on adversarial machine learning could revolutionize the way commercial AI is built, making it much more robust and reliable. 

Since then, we’ve grown our team, welcoming those who previously built bleeding-edge AI systems at companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Uber. Together, we translate years of research and industry experience into our platform, RIME, that eliminates the risks inherent in AI systems.
