Lightmatter is an artificial intelligence (AI) hardware company that uses integrated optical technology to create faster and more efficient processors. They accelerate critical operations in deep neural networks using an array of programmable photonic elements fabricated alongside transistors in conventional CMOS processes (the same processes used to make cell phone chips). Advantages of our optical processing technology include speed of light evaluations as well as low power consumption. By accelerating this core AI operation, they can speed up many of the software algorithms underlying image recognition, natural language processing, and more, thereby facilitating the next generation of AI-powered computing. Founded in 2017, the company is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, United States.Something looks off?
