Logo of Recogni


Vision-oriented AI platform purpose-built for autonomous vehicles.

Recogni uses artificial intelligence to develop electric vehicles. The automobile industry has arrived at a crossroads. The transition to electric vehicles (EV) and the vitalized development of fully-autonomous vehicles (AV) has placed a big burden on fitting extraordinary amounts of computational power for artificial intelligence within the energy budget of batteries without affecting range. Recogni, with its unique approach to designing a vision-oriented inference artificial intelligence system from the ground up as a holistic module, delivers unprecedented inference performance at more than 500x better power efficiency compared to other solutions, enabling novel edge processing at multiple points on vehicles to naturally offload central processing needs.

Building on an unique blend of proven track records in high-performance computing and distributed systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and imaging and vision systems, Recogni is working on accelerating the realization of fully-autonomous vehicles.
