About us:

Mythic's platform delivers the power of desktop GPU in a single low-power chip, supporting inference for large deep neural networks. Mythic's technology is based upon an entirely new hybrid digital/analog flash calculation using 8-bit non-volatile memory arrays which have been under development since 2012. This step-change in performance brings in a range of new applications in a broad array of verticals, including safety and security, autonomous vehicles, VR/AR, robotics, and media.

Mythic is a fast-growing company with over 130 employees, $85M in funding from top tier investors, and >$1M NRE revenue from two existing customer accounts. Mythic's investors include Softbank, Threshold Ventures, Lux Capital, and Data Collective.
