Our Story

Pioneering the first-ever confidential AI solution for multi-party and inter-company collaborative analytics.

Opaque was built by confidential computing pioneers hailing from UC Berkeley’s RISELab, the world-renowned lab developing technologies that enable applications to interact intelligently and securely with their environment in real time.

RISELab has produced companies and projects like Databricks and Apache Spark. Together, Professor Ion Stoica (also founder and chairman of Databricks), Professor Raluca Ada Popa, Dr. Rishabh Poddar, Professor Wenting Zheng, and Chester Leung created, incubated, and open-sourced the breakthrough MC2 (Multiparty Collaboration and Competition) platform; MC2 enabled multiple data owners to perform joint analytics and ML model training on collective data without revealing their individual data to each other. Opaque’s platform was built on top of this open-source foundation, and the company was officially founded in 2021.
