About us

Hoursec is an innovative machine learning architecture that reduces by up to 80% the amount of data needed for training learning algorithms, as a consequence, for the first time in the semiconductor industry, we are capable of doing both, training and inference on a same chip. As a first application for our breakthrough, we are creating an AI- assisted real-time processing of data transmission in parallel with inference processing. Continuous training, error-correction, and inference in real time. Consequently, we aim to reduce energy required for computation – lower power, faster simultaneous training and inference. Depending on the size requirements of our customers, we can offer a plug and play solution from the centimeter-scale to the nanometer-scale for deployments in the proximity of sensors and actuators. The flexibility for miniaturization, expands our investment and customer opportunities.

Drops of thought

Cloud computing insights.

A grasp of one of our pillars, what Hoursec develops, shape and amplify.

Human-machine boundary insights.

The machine: Knowledge and Information are power but requires energy. The human: Energy efficient decision maker. Hoursec: Fast and accurate decisions at the edge.

Deterministic until creativity surges.

As a research institute and Startup, we live and breath creativity. It is crucially important to distinguish the human from the machine by creativity.

Competitive Entrepreneurship.

Truly innovating focusing on our customer. We don't have competition but satisfied customers.
