Neuromorphic Computing

Brain biomimicry is a paradigm shift from today’s Deep Learning AI to Natural Intelligence. Researching 600 million years of evolution to understand how real brains move around their environments to enable a new dawn for autonomy in machines.

Opteran have created computer vision, sensing, object detection and avoidance, SLAM navigation, machine decision making and more. Transforming the way OEMs across industry deliver autonomy in machines, robots and vehicles. Enabling them to move as in nature – with a small, lightweight and ultra-lower powered silicon that is orders of magnitude more efficient than today’s Deep Learning. 

Opteran is spin-out from the University of Sheffield, leveraging over £6m in grant funding and 8 years of research, being started by CEO David Rajan, CSO Professor James Marshall and CTO Dr. Alex Cope.

IQ Capital invested in Opteran at Seed stage in 2020.
