Founded in 2017 by Dr. Mike Capps and Dr. Chris Hazard, Howso seeks to change the trajectory of AI by making it more transparent and trustworthy. The company’s core development platform is built using instance-based learning (IBL). It is an understandable and auditable alternative to black-box AI development platforms such as PyTorch, JAX, and Scikit-learn. Howso’s AI framework is already used by global financial institutions, health care systems, and governments committed to understandable AI. Howso is backed by leading investors including Calibrate Ventures, Shield Capital, and Mastercard.
