About Us

Taiyō: noun  [Japanese word for the Sun]

We are Revolutionizing the Built Environment

Our Mission is to Engineer Intelligence for Better Outcomes in a Connected World

At Taiyō.AI, we recognize the crucial role infrastructure plays in fostering economic growth and development. We’re dedicated to tackling the industry’s challenges and driving transformation.

With a projected $100T investment in global infrastructure over the coming decades, the infra community will have significant influence on sustainable development and long-term prosperity across the globe. However, infrastructure lags all other major sectors in data quality, information technology and AI solutions by decades. This lag has massive implications on the industry’s rate of evolution at a time when it should be leading change.

Global society needs a healthy, efficient infrastructure industry.  Our mission is to reduce information asymmetry and empower industry stakeholders by providing foundational intelligence that informs critical choices.  We believe that uniformly empowering stakeholders with improved intelligence will result in more informed decisions and better outcomes across the industry and society.

The Taiyō.AI core leadership team pulls together a diverse and complementary set of experiences, collectively bringing proven product and leadership expertise in artificial intelligence, systems engineering, construction, infrastructure, risk management, and finance.
