About Ought

Ought is an applied research lab building Elicit, a research assistant using language models to automate parts of the research process. 
 
Today, researchers and policy analysts use Elicit for literature review, finding collaborators, and labeling datasets. Researchers can define new tasks by showing Elicit just a few examples of the task being done. Elicit then scales those tasks to thousands of publications and datasets.
