Our mission is to reduce the friction between users and data through data agent technology.

The values behind Gaia

Reduce Friction

Reduce Friction

We think that analytics are too hard to use, requiring too much time, money, and training for the average person. Everything we do is about removing friction between decision-makers & data.

Be Human

Be Human

There are plenty of giant, faceless corporations out there — we don’t want to be one of them. We believe in staying close to our users so that we can understand their problems and help solve them.

Be open

Be Open

AI has the potential to make the “black box” problem that’s plagued data platforms even worse. We’re combatting lack of openness by committing to transparency, open-source, and ethical AI standards.
