Anima AI + Science Lab

We envision and build principled foundations for AI.
We enable and accelerate scientific applications by developing new AI methods.


Our AI based weather forecasting is 45000x faster than current weather models, while having the same accuracy. This speedup allows us to run thousands of simulations in different scenarios to predict what the climate will bring in the future.


Our methods allow drones to land and fly in strong winds while guaranteeing safety.


Our Fourier Neural Operator is able to run PDE simulations at 1000x speedups - to accelerate simulating fluid behaviors in engineering domains - from designing better heat sinks to faster cars and planes and everything in between.


Our Orbnet molecule model is able to predict quantum chemistry, and used to design new drugs - and help understand COVID-19.


Our models can solve open ended tasks by learning from internet scale knowledge.
