The only example of human-level intelligence is the human brain, which has ~125 trillion synapses. This is orders of magnitude more than today’s largest artificial neural networks. Fathom Radiant was founded to bridge this gap.
The limitation is the interconnect technology of traditional electronic computers - put simply, the challenge is moving bits around. By combining the complementary strengths of optics and electronics, we created a revolutionary interconnect fabric that is low latency, high bandwidth, and low power. The result is a single machine with a network capacity of a supercomputer, which enables programming flexibility and unprecedented scaling to models that are far larger than anything yet conceived.
Who we are
Fathom was founded using first-principles thinking to build hardware that can enable artificial general intelligence.
We don't consider beneficial advancement inevitable and believe that we can make the difference in how and when safe machine intelligence is developed.
As a public benefit corporation, we are bound by our charter to help mitigate the risks that such technology creates and ensure that its benefits are shared by all. To pursue these goals we have chosen to establish an independent ethics board, collaborate with other groups focused on beneficial AI, and investigate policy mechanisms for the differential advancement of AI alignment research.
