Special thanks to the program that brought us together

Our team was formed through the relationships we built at the Frontier Development Lab an applied artificial intelligence research lab at NASA Ames hosted by the SETI Institute and developed and operated by Trillium Technologies. This research program created the lifelong friendships that allowed this team to develop. Applications are open for the 2021 program (https://frontierdevelopmentlab.org/)
