Along with its partner CoreWeave, Inflection AI has raised a total of $1.525 billion in funding so far as it aims to build the largest AI cluster in the world comprising 22,000 Nvidia H100 Tensor Core GPUs.
In just over a year, Inflection AI has developed an advanced and refined large language model that powers Pi (personal intelligence), a personal AI that’s designed to revolutionise human-AI interaction by offering a seamless and intuitive experience as well as useful information.
Mustafa Suleyman, CEO and co-founder of Inflection AI said, “Personal AI is going to be the most transformational tool of our lifetimes. This is truly an inflection point. We’re excited to collaborate with Nvidia, Microsoft, and CoreWeave as well as Eric, Bill and many others to bring this vision to life.”
Continued growth and development
The funding will provide backing for Inflection’s ongoing efforts in the development of its first product Pi, which first launched in May.
Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia said, “A powerful benefit of the AI revolution is the ability to use natural, conversational language to interact with supercomputers to simplify aspects of our everyday lives. The world-class team at Inflection AI is helping to lead this groundbreaking work, deploying Nvidia AI technology to develop, train and deploy massive generative AI models that enable amazing personal digital assistants.”
Kevin Scott, CTO and EVP AI at Microsoft said, “We’re proud to support Inflection AI as they pursue their vision for more trusted and personal AI experiences.” He adds that AI companies such as Inflection are pioneering the industry with transformative products at an exciting time.
In an earlier funding round in early 2022, Inflection AI secured $225 million investment from backers including Greylock, Microsoft, Reid Hoffman, Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt, Mike Schroepfer, Demis Hassabis, Will.i.am, Horizons Ventures, and Dragoneer.
