About us

Hoursec’s energy efficient AI-On-Chip technology was born after a neuroscientific research invention that went through the fortunate steps for implementation, shaping us as an innovative startup. This gave us the breakthrough to reduce the energy requirements for AI workloads by a factor of 3000X. With Hoursec, customers can achieve sustainable training and inference for real-time business decisions. Hoursec’s inspiration from brain-inspired synaptic functioning, allows us to maximise the ratio of information transmission by giving flexibility and a high throughput characteristics found in the brain. Thanks to our theoretical and interdisciplinary re-thinking of computation, we have a granular approach to simulating complex systems for IoT and edge computing. Our sustainable AI-On-Chip platform offers optimisation and analytics right from the Data Centre, to devices at the network’s Edge.
