About Us

what we stand for

Our Projects

where genius and experience meet

LAION-400M

We are creating the world’s largest openly accessible image-text-pair dataset, as a step to democratize research on training of large language-image models like DALL-E & CLIP

Explore our already released samples (400M) & help us to quickly grow into the billions!

Training@Home

We are using the Crawling@Home dataset to generate openly accessible, multimodal models!

Training and refining openly available models help by avoiding redundancy, which in the end lowers our environmental footprint.
