Dan Goldin, who led NASA during the 1990s, took the wraps off his 11-year-old San Diego company, KnuEdge, on June 6.
KnuEdge specializes in neural computing. The company has collected $100 million in private funding for its venture.
The business, formerly known as Intellisis Corp., has two divisions.
Its Knupath division focuses on what it calls Lambda Fabric processor technology, which offers “groundbreaking scalability, latency and workload performance in next-generation data centers.” Among its features are 256-core processors.
The company’s second division, KnuVerse, centers on military-grade voice recognition and authentication technology. Voice can be one of the most powerful biometric identifiers available, the company said.
Goldin, who started the business in 2005 and is its CEO, said his company is developing transformative technology.
“We were swinging for the fences from the very beginning,” the former NASA administrator said in a prepared statement, “with intent to create next-generation technologies that will in essence alter how humans interact with machines, and enable next-generation computing capabilities ranging from signal processing to machine learning.”
The business is located on Torrey Pines Mesa, a short distance from the University of California San Diego.
