The NovuMind Vision

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in NovuMind. We have been busy the last couple of years assembling one of the world’s best teams in AI and creating a set of enabling technologies that we think will change the world. In this blog, I hope to share with you my excitement about what we’re doing and some of my perspectives about the industry. I’ll be adding posts every few weeks and I’ll be eager to hear your feedback. I have worked on artificial intelligence for many years, but I must say that right now is a particularly exciting time for the AI industry. This is due to multiple converging forces. The smartphone and the proliferation of other “connected things” are generating vast amounts of data. At the same time, deep neural networks are being developed that are capable of being trained with this data to perform all sorts of perception and automation tasks. Heterogeneous computing, i.e. the use of different computing architectures to address specific functions, has powered many of the advances in deep neural networks. Consider the success of Nvidia, whose GPUs have been adopted for many applications beyond graphics processing. The ability of machines…More DetailsThe NovuMind Vision
