Semiotic Labs was founded in Los Altos, California, in February 2020. Before starting the company, Ahmet Ozcan (CEO) managed the Machine Intelligence department at IBM Research, Almaden; Alexis Asseman (Lead Developer) investigated AI hardware acceleration at IBM Research; and Sam Green (Head of Research) was finishing his Computer Science Ph.D. at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

From the beginning, Semiotic Labs has created products that combine AI and cryptography. Initially, we focused on Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE), a family of techniques that enables computing directly on encrypted data. We experienced initial success with an NSF SBIR Phase I to use our technology to accelerate FHE. After our first year, we pivoted into web3, where we found greater demand for our AI and cryptography skills within The Graph protocol and became long-term core developers.
