Data movement bottlenecks have informed poor design decisions in nascent computer architectures for AI. We use silicon photonics to break through the existing data-movement bottlenecks, and we’re re-architecting the entire AI hardware stack to take advantage of the 1000x increases in bandwidth and performance. We are creating a single training solution that will outperform the world’s largest AI supercomputers. Backed by Bill Gates, Luke Nosek, Ali Partovi, Dara Khosrowshahi, and other reputable Silicon Valley investors.
