"McGill and University of Montreal are home to brilliant students and visionary professors contributing to advancing cutting edge AI research. We are excited to join forces with them in collaborative open research projects with the end goal to design AI tools for our users. We are committed to bringing the latest AI advances directly in the hands of our users enabling them to create high quality artistic content in a faster, better and smarter way."

"I am excited to be able to collaborate with NYU which has a long history of high-impact research in the areas of computer graphics and machine learning. Working with Ken Perlin and his research team will enable Unity to experiment with novel generative 3D techniques that leverage both procedural methods and machine learning. The goal is to create new foundational generative primitives that can be used in content authoring."

What we stand for

We believe the world is a better place with more creators in it. We put our users first. We value everyone’s ideas and the best ideas win. We respect each other’s uniqueness and we’re in it together. We are bold, and we challenge and elevate each other beyond our limits.

How we live our values

Empathy is about listening to understand instead of listening to respond. Respect is acknowledging individual experiences and perspectives. Opportunity is being able to lead, grow, and take on projects in a fair and equitable way.

Our impact

We are the world’s leading platform for creating and operating interactive, real-time 3D (RT3D) content. We empower creators, across industries and around the world. More than 50% of mobile games are made with Unity, with apps made with Unity downloaded over 3 billion times a month.
