Vicarious

Vicarious is an artificial intelligence company that uses the computational principles of the brain to build software that can process visual information, think and learn like a human. By using inductive biases drawn from neuroscience, Vicarious's system requires orders of magnitude less training data than traditional machine learning techniques. Currently the company's focus is on visual perception problems such as recognition, segmentation and scene parsing.

We are building a unified algorithmic architecture to achieve human-level intelligence in vision, language, and motor control. Currently, we are focused on visual perception problems, like recognition, segmentation, and scene parsing. We are interested in general solutions that work well across multiple sensory domains and tasks.

Using inductive biases drawn from neuroscience, our system requires orders of magnitude less training data than traditional machine learning techniques. Our underlying framework combines advantages of deep architectures and generative probabilistic models. We use modern software engineering practices, and we strive to maintain a codebase and a culture that are a joy to work in.
