Singular Computing


Singular Computing develops and licenses hardware and software technologies

for high performance energy efficient computing, both large scale and embedded.


The technologies, based on approximate computing, are general purpose.

They support deep learning, other sorts of AI, and non-AI tasks.


Approximate machines yield the same quality results as modern GPUs,

but with 30-50x better compute/watt.
