Who we are

At Numbers Station, we’re using the latest revolution in artificial intelligence to automate enterprise data tasks. In particular, we use foundation models (e.g. GPT-4o) to power data analytics and downstream actions. Ultimately this democratizes access to data within organizations and enables them to quickly act on those insights. Numbers Station is born out of years of research at Stanford University and our technology already powers assistants and search engines at top tech companies. Numbers Station is bringing this technology to the broader enterprise.
