Lightmatter | Accelerating Artificial Intelligence with Light

Lightmatter


60 State St, Boston, United States

Progress in nearly all areas of human endeavor is inextricably linked to improvements in computers. Transistors, the workhorse of traditional computers, aren't improving. They're simply too hot. Ever-growing datacenters are a dead end path along the road of computational progress. We need a new computing paradigm: optical computing. Lightmatter's optical compute platforms are faster and use less energy. We're simultaneously enabling the growth of computing and reducing its impact on our planet.
