About

GoodAI was founded in 2014 with a $10M personal investment from Marek Rosa. Our long-term goal is to build general artificial intelligence that will automate cognitive processes in science, technology, business, and other fields. We conduct our own research, advocate fundamental AI research at the EU governmental level, and forge a community of like-minded groups through the GoodAI Grants program.

Our approach

The guiding principles of our AI research focus on developing AI agents capable of gradually accumulating skills and recursively self-improving. To fulfill this vision, we are concentrating on LLM agents equipped with Long-Term Memory (LTM). To better track our advancements in LTM, we have developed and open-sourced the GoodAI LTM Benchmark, along with some of our LTM agents. Additionally, we are working on a game titled “AI People,” which will feature LLM agents with long-term memory, marking it as one of the first AI-simulated games. In the past, we initiated the GoodAI Grants program, founded the AI Roadmap Institute, and launched the General AI Challenge, all aimed at harnessing the power of collaboration to address open research problems collectively.
