About Normal Computing

Normal is a New York-based deep-tech startup founded by former engineers from Google Brain, Alphabet X, and Palantir. Our investors include Celesta Capital, First Spark Ventures, Micron and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt. We engage with enterprise companies across various industries, including financial services, semiconductors, and the public sector, to deliver cutting-edge AI solutions.

We build AI systems that natively reason, so they can partner with us on our most important problems.

Our products serve as critical full-stack infrastructure for our enterprise users in deploying AI into high-stakes applications. We are addressing the challenges of reliability, adaptivity, and auditability, which have traditionally been central barriers to adoption.

We believe that the untapped potential of AI to create transformative value remains to be fully realized. Thus far, AI has been subject to technological limitations such as unpredictable factual errors in generative AI (known as hallucinations) or lack of auditability as black-box models. Consequently, these limitations restrict the application of AI primarily to consumer-grade, low-stakes generative AI workflows and basic pattern recognition systems.

We envision that true transformative value can be unlocked in enterprise-grade, high-stakes AI workflows, where AI can reason reliably and autonomously, and understand its own limits. In these contexts, AI has the capacity to drive meaningful outcomes with real, complex impact.

Our approach involves redesigning AI systems from the ground up, contrasting other surface-level approaches. Our AI application development platform is powered by novel full-stack probabilistic machine learning infrastructure driven by thermodynamic physics. With Normal's probabilistic AI, we offer unprecedented control over reliability, adaptivity, and auditability to AI models, specifically tailored for critical and customer-specific enterprise workflows.

As we forge ahead with our mission, we are seeking passionate individuals eager to collaborate with our uniquely diverse and interdisciplinary team, and motivated by a workplace where the hardest problems remain to be solved.
