MAIHEM redefines quality assurance for AI. We create AI agents that continuously test a company's AI application, such as a chatbot. Our solution allows companies to stress-test their AI products before they go live and to automate A/B testing with hyperrealistic simulated users. This leads to substantially improved AI quality assurance processes - enhancing AI performance, reliability, and safety.
