Sustainable and innovative solutions with AI.

Build a Fairer, more Sustainable Society with AI

At Recursive, our goal is to collaborate with large enterprises to create innovative solutions to sustainability challenges, merging in our expertise in AI research and our client’s domain knowledge. We want to make ethics a priority concern during development, and we are invested in making sure AI is used in a fair and balanced way. Our development projects focus around the main themes of improving efficiency, accelerating innovation, risk mitigation and better work and education.

We are now looking to grow and expand our impact further, building on previous successes. One of many initiatives we are currently pursuing is a system to optimize irrigation of peatlands in Indonesia, helping to prevent forest fires and maximize carbon absorption. Learn more about this project by watching our presentation at the Google Cloud for Sustainability event. In addition to our client projects, we actively maintain and enhance our own products, such as FindFlow and Borealis.
