About Efficient Corporation:
Efficient is a chip company developing a general-purpose computing platform for intelligence at the extreme edge. Efficient’s technology increases on-device compute efficiency by orders of magnitude, and thereby enables pervasive intelligence throughout environments that are unreachable with today’s processor designs. Efficient is developing an ultra-low-power general purpose processor that dramatically reduces energy without compromising programmability — imagine a vision-based sensor that can perform AI functions for 10 years on a single AA battery. In addition, Efficient is building a fully integrated software and compiler stack that supports migration of high-level language code to the Efficient chip platform with no required re-writes.
Efficient was established in 2022 as a spinout of Carnegie Mellon University and is currently building a world-class team of hardware and software engineers spanning from silicon implementation to compilers. With seed funding secured, a portfolio of patent-protected IP, and substantial progress on hardware and software development, EfficientAI is moving quickly toward delivering first silicon in early- to mid-2024..
