As a team, we are working to define and solve the hardest problems in AI including computer vision, speech, and natural language, geared towards real-time capabilities on small to medium form factor devices. We originated out of multiple years of research, as such at our core we value learning, intellectual curiosity, and self-starters. We have the ambitious goal of enabling a distributed intelligent edge ecosystem that complements a centralized cloud infrastructure, while keeping data private, enabling real-time computation and the ability to learn continuously from the real-world data. We achieve this by bringing innovative solutions to enterprises, and make edge devices intelligent while optimizing for memory, compute and energy without modifications to existing AI infrastructure and frameworks.
