Our Mission: Achieve nothing less than radically enhancing human understanding through the use of information technology, by making it dramatically more convenient for people to interact with information, devices, and other people. We will achieve this by developing a revolutionary Information Utility, able to operate at planetary scale. To validate the architecture, we will stress it under demanding applications for rapid decision making and learning. In addition, we will develop new methodologies for the construction and administration of systems of this unprecedented scale and complexity. Our success will be measured by how effectively our architecture actually amplifies and leverages human intellect.
