Cortica emerged out of a research project at Israel’s esteemed Technion Institute that led to a series of breakthrough discoveries into how the mammal cortex deciphers visual environments. The three researchers that would become Cortica’s founders combined their expertise in Neuroscience, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science to hack into live rat brain tissue and “encode” digital images. Mimicking these natural biological processes is the core of Cortica’s autonomous AI.
Since beginning in 2007, Cortica has become the leader of AI technology for autonomous platforms. The company’s autonomous AI is based on proprietary brain research and utilizes unsupervised-learning technology backed by more than 200 patents. Cortica understands the visual world on a human level – thereby significantly exceeding the capabilities of the industry.
With headquarters in Tel Aviv and offices in NYC Cortica has 100 employees including leading AI researchers and veterans of elite Israeli military intelligence units.
This autonomous AI is embedded in next-generation, ultra-scale platforms where understanding images is a critical task. Cortica provides the intelligence that enables autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and more.
