Arthur AI

Our Team

Arthur is Dedicated to bringing High-Performing AI Into Production Safely and Responsibly.

Our leadership team has a combined 50+ years of AI experience, delivering many high-leverage machine learning systems into production. Arthur is the platform we wished we’d had in previous roles, to provide much-needed visibility into the large-scale systems we’d worked so hard to build. Our goal is to make every model observable, equitable, and auditable so that all designers can understand and continually improve the operations of their systems.
