About Us

Our vision is to humanise AI by building autonomous systems that behave like humans.

Latent Logic, formerly Morpheus Labs, was formed following our founding team’s involvement in the TERESA project, where the enormous societal and commercial value of Imitation Learning became clear.

Our aim is to unlock that value by combining our world-class academic background with a practical problem-solving mindset, a good understanding of customers’ needs, and a talented, driven team.
