We use the name Cyborg to emphasize our strategy of building database management tools for both humans and machines at the same time. Our team comes from a diverse set of disciplines, but we’re all artists and art lovers. We take a holistic approach to building our software — actively curating and creating art together so we can truly understand our community’s needs. Click here for more about our team.
