What’s in a name?


Yes, HAL9000 – the sentient computer that features in Arthur C. Clarke’s Space Odyssey – did provide some of the inspiration behind the name HAL24K. And yes, the crew of Discovery One found that when HAL9000 malfunctioned, it had horrible consequences.

Every technological innovation has the potential to be misused, yet they should offer the opportunity to benefit us all. That’s what led to the addition of ‘24K’.

Gold of the highest purity is 24K, or 100% gold, and is used in electronics, medical devices and nanotechnology. Its purity, combined with the potential of AI and ML, is what inspires our mission to make the world a better place (and as a nod to Arthur C. Clarke, any other worlds we might encounter too).
