About Yurts:

Generative AI is making a real difference in people's lives. We’re seeing those who use it experience significant improvements in their productivity and get things done faster than ever before. The problem is, it’s not optimized for the workplace.

Generative AI is not yet connected to the information and knowledge you use every day to do your job. It’s not configurable across the products you work with each day. Why? Enterprises think about privacy, they have their own IT infrastructure, and access rights to data. There are established workflows and applications, budgets for compute, petabytes of corporate data and knowledge.

At Yurts, we’re solving this problem. We are empowering people to do their best work by making every day easier with accessible AI.
