Low-power AI networks for cars, phones, drones & wearables

Applied Brain Research (ABR) makes software tools and algorithms for building very low-power embedded AI systems for use in devices such as phones, drones, robots, cars, cameras, clothing, wearables, and sensors. At ABR, we are neuroscientists and AI engineers, making devices smarter and greener.

Your brain is the world's most efficient neural network computer. Our designs are inspired by the design of brain circuits. As an example, the architecture of our recently released automatic speech recognition (ASR) system was inspired by the neurons that track events in time in your brain. Our ASR design understands spoken command words using only 9 one-millionths of a watt of electricity. That means the chip alone would run for more than 7 years on the average hearing-aid battery! We sell our technologies to device makers and our tools to developers who wish to build low-power, dynamic AI networks for their devices. Download our low-power AI developer tool, Nengo, at
