Help us make a better world
More than twenty years ago, our founder articulated the idea that the “corporate entity” is a company that is not just the people who work there, but also the shareholders, the customers, and everyone that understands and believes in the company’s vision. New Sapience is more than a company - it is a community with a shared vision of a better world that you can join today.
Our sapiens, which have been called “AI with a human face,” are the world’s first machines that think and understand like humans do. Our vision is of a world where these thinking machines are our partners, helping every one of us to realize our own personal goals, to live a more engaged human life.
While the field of AI has always been prone to exaggerated claims, never has the hype, confusion, and sometimes even genuine dishonesty surrounding AI been higher. With the exception of what New Sapience has created, everything you read about AI is about “Machine Learning” (ML) – a technology that never should have been called AI in the first place. The correct term is Data Science. If people would stop calling it AI, perhaps there would not be a rush to use ML in automated decision making.
Data science has many useful applications in pattern recognition. Bear in mind that ML algorithms only compile statistics; they are mindless, with nothing like intelligence. Yet these algorithms are used every day to decide who gets a loan, who gets a job, and who gets admitted to schools. There are even cases of people being falsely arrested based on ML-output. When ML is used to make decisions that affect people’s lives, it can only treat people as statistics. Are you okay with that?
Even worse (if that’s possible), Big Tech companies have deployed these algorithms to track our behaviors and manipulate us for their own financial gain.
When our sapiens become commonplace, when human knowledge, perspective, and values are at the foundation of thinking machines, the tyranny of the mindless statistical algorithms will be over.
Can one small company bring a technology into the world that will put humanity on a new track towards a better world, when the combined might of the Big Tech Goliaths are pushing us in another direction?
We can, although not by ourselves. Reach out, give us your hand, and help us make it to the top.
If you share our vision, help shape it and be part of making it our collective, new reality.

special opportunities for new sapience Community Members
- An opportunity to reserve the name of your own Companion Sapiens. Sapiens, like people, have individual proper names (because, like people, each one becomes unique by interacting with you and other people as you permit).
- An opportunity to have access to Ada, an online prototype sapiens, and help shape her ongoing ”education” through your feedback.
- An opportunity to participate in our upcoming private beta test program, which consists of getting your own Companion Sapiens well in advance of official product release.
- First consideration for employment as we grow.
