Our story

Openlayer makes AI transparent, explainable, and fair. The founders, Gabe, Rish and Vikas met at Apple, where they were ML engineers and witnessed firsthand the challenge of building trustworthy AI models. Through exposure to dozens of teams at Apple, they were able to get a birds-eye view of what made development pipelines work (or fail), and in turn, gained a special intelligence into how ML teams operate at large and small scale. Each team inevitably ran into the same problem: their models would not perform as accurately as they thought they would in the real world. The founders left Apple to solve this problem by building a best-in-class process for evaluating and improving models.
