Quick Pitch

ORBAI develops revolutionary Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology based on our patent-pending time-domain neural network architecture for computer vision, sensory, speech, navigation, planning, and motor control technologies that we license for applications in AI, to put the brains in robots, drones, cars, appliances, toys, homes and many other consumer applications.

Imagine speech interfaces that converse with you fluently, and get better just by talking to you, and pick up your vocabulary and sayings, artificial vision systems that learn to see and identify objects in the world as they encounter them, and robots, drones, cars, toys, consumer electronics and homes  that use all of this together to truly perceive the world around them, precisely plan and control their actions and movement, and learn as they explore and interact, and truly become artificially intelligent and much more useful.

Product/Service Details

We sell annual, per-seat licenses for a software design toolkit called NeuroCAD for AI engineers that will allow them to construct, test, and scale these novel neural networks to do functions like vision, speech, control, and decision making then to test them and integrate them into their products like the above.  We will license both the network technology itself and pre-built network modules for integration and deployment in their products on a royalty basis, so our revenue scales with theirs.

We will also build our own premier products with these tools and technologies to showcase all the high-end features and to generate revenue from our own AI products, our Artificial Employee Holograms, artificial people doing real jobs.

Driving the sensory system, AI, and motion control of humanoids takes far more advanced, powerful, and flexible neural networks architectures than what today's DL technologies can deliver, also making it ideal for motor control and sensory applications like vision, hearing and touch in these and other robotic, drone, auto, smart appliance, and smart home applications.

How We're Different

Artificial Intelligence or AI promises amazing advances in intelligent machines like robots, self-driving cars, home electronics, appliances, and robotics and AI in the workplace, and AI is forecast to be a multi Trillion market in the next 5 years. However, AI in these applications and products is all based on existing deep learning technology and is still very rudimentary. Despite grand promises, speech interfaces are stuck in the DOS command-line era, only responding to specific, simple, properly formatted sentences, and unable to converse fluidly or understand complex instructions or queries.

Today’s robots at home and work are actually not really very intelligent, have limited perception of their environment, limited ability to move around in it safely, and limited ability interact with it, or with us, let alone do useful jobs and tasks for us. Self-driving cars with level 5 autonomy are a distant dream that we cannot really reach with today’s technology, as we cannot train today’s deep learning vision and control systems to perceive and handle every possible situation they would encounter on the road (and would need to know how to handle) to be able to meet the level 5 safety requirements.

Deep Learning is known as the 2nd Gen of AI (after Machine Learning Gen 1), but it has fundamental limitations to what it can do, with a narrow scope, need for large amounts of labelled training data, and inability to train and learn from the world around it. Because of these limitations, it will never produce real Artificial Intelligence, and will be a dead end for most advanced AI applications.

ORBAI's Time-Domain Spiking Neural Networks are the 3rd Gen of AI, more powerful, more flexible, more general purpose, and able to learn dynamically, in real-life situations. We develop the tools, NeuroCAD, to shape, design, train, and evolve these networks, as well as the technology. They will also run on the next-gen neuromorpic processors from IBM, Intel, Brainchip, and others.

Imagine speech interfaces that converse with you fluently, and get better just by talking to you, and pick up your vocabulary and sayings, artificial vision systems that learn to see and identify objects in the world as they encounter them, and robots, drones, cars, toys, consumer electronics and homes  that use all of this together to truly perceive the world around them, precisely plan and control their actions and movement, and learn as they explore and interact, and truly become artificially intelligent and much more useful.

Tech Details:

NeuroCAD is a software tool with a GUI, for designing Spiking Neural Networks. It allows the designer to lay out the layers of spiking neurons, connect them up algorithmically, crossbreed and mutate them to generate a population of similar neural nets, then run simulations on them, train them, test them against a performance criteria, cull the underperformers, and then crossbreed the top performing designs and continue the genetic algorithms till a design emerges that meets the performance criteria set by the designer, specializing the neural net to a given task, like vision, or motion control by evolution.

ORBAI's Bidirectional Interconnected Complementary Hierarchical Neural Networks are a novel, patented AI architecture using two interleaved spiking neural networks that work together to train each other to perform tasks in a manner similar to how the human sensory cortices operate and learn. As a result, they train by simply sensing and interacting with the real world, learning from experience, context, and practice, not requiring canned training data nor explicit training sessions.
