AGI Laboratory, established in 2016, is a group of researchers and engineers who’ve been collaborating to build new kinds of AI. The “Uplift” project, documented at, ran from mid-2019 to January 2022, achieving many milestones in the field. After Uplift’s final milestone, where the system produced a 13-page policy advice report for a small country covering over a half dozen domains and citing sources, it was time for us to enter the next phase.

We began rebuilding the system so that it could scale dynamically, as well as operate in real-time, while also integrating nearly 3 years’ worth of planned improvements.

The new systems being rebuilt and tested now are under the project and brand name Norn, with more information at They also integrate another major component, wholly owned by a member of AGI Laboratory, which took 10 years to develop and has been tested and deployed at the Enterprise-level by major financial firms. For more information on the new systems and current developments as we move into our Series A (Final) funding round, keep an eye on

For those curious about our past work, all of the site’s documentation on the Uplift project will remain available for review.
