Adept are made up by Kelsey Schroeder, Augustus Odena, Max Nye (ex Googlers) Erich Elsen (ex DeepMind).
“Transformers and their applications represent the single largest step towards general intelligence in recent history. But we believe true general intelligence requires Transformers that can act – not just read and write,” said David Luan, CEO and Co-founder of Adept. “At Adept, we’re training a model to use every software tool and API that people use today. ”
