Describe your company's current technology and solutions
We make software tools and algorithms for building very low-power embedded AI systems for use in devices such as phones, drones, robots, cars, cameras, clothing, wearables and sensors. At ABR we help make devices smarter and greener. We are neuroscientists and AI engineers. Your brain is the world's most efficient neural network computer. Our designs are Inspired by the design of brain circuits.

As an example, the architecture of our recently released automatic speech recognition (ASR) system was inspired by the neurons that track events in time in your brain. Our ASR design understands spoken command words using only 9 one-millionths of a watt of electricity. That means the chip alone would run for more than 7 years on the average hearing-aid battery! We sell our technologies to device makers and our tools to developers who wish to build low-power, dynamic AI networks for their devices.
