Building machines that think like people

Sanctuary is on a mission to create the world’s first human-like intelligence in general-purpose robots.

Carbon™, our pioneering AI control system, and Phoenix™, our 6th generation robot, are the general-purpose technologies that make our mission possible.

Product True General Purpose System 650X650

A true general-purpose system

While others are focused on developing special-purpose AI and special-purpose robots to address specific, narrowly defined, singular tasks or activities, at Sanctuary we are taking a much more general-purpose approach to both AI and robotics.

The Carbon™ AI control system mimics subsystems found in the human brain, such as memory, sight, sound, and touch. When applied with Phoenix™ general-purpose robots, opportunities will exist to take on just about any human task. Sanctuary technology can be trained and piloted in both the physical world and in the virtual world through the Sanctuary World Engine™.

A tool for the expansion of human endeavors

The idea is to augment the human workforce and to make it safer. With human-like intelligence, Phoenix general-purpose robots will work side by side with people in the following ways: 

  • Directly piloted by people
  • Operated by people using pilot-assist
  • Supervised by people while using the robot’s built-in Carbon™ AI control system to observe, assess, and act on tasks
Product Best Both Worlds 650X650

The best of both worlds

Our work is unique. Leveraging a blend of symbolic and neural reasoning, our autonomous control system utilizes the best of both approaches to AI while mitigating the weaknesses of each. Put in another way, Carbon™ is AI that has never been seen before. 

Work that's safer, more efficient,
and sustainable

Watch as our robots complete a wide variety of tasks in the "Robots Doing Stuff" series. Our intelligent, human-like systems will enable work to be done without putting their human supervisors and pilots in harms way, making work safer, more efficient, and sustainable. 

Many organizations around the world are experiencing a profound labor shortage. Gaps in the workforce can be filled with Sanctuary technology, which can help to sustain economies and propel humanity forward.
