Mireplica Technology

The Mireplica Visual-Processing Architecture addresses a wide range of vision-processing applications – including AI – programmed in conventional C++. A single program thread enables the efficient use of hundreds of datapaths, operating simultaneously on contexts that are logically fully shared, to the extent of an entire image frame of any dimensions. Despite the use of vector abstractions in the programming model, the architecture supports on-the-fly processing on streams – without requiring that large vectors, arrays, or line buffers be assembled in memory before processing.

The architecture employs a new form of instruction generation and execution: asynchronous distributed single-instruction, multiple data (AD-SIMD). Execution is highly out-of-order, but conforms to a single-threaded model implemented using a standard CPU, such as RISC-V, with custom instructions emitted by class-library abstractions. The platforms are highly customizable using C++ high-level synthesis, and approach the power, performance, and area metrics of hardware ASIC blocks, but with full programmability.

Piera Systems

Piera Systems Inc. is focused on Digital Health. Piera has developed a next-generation Intelligent Particle Sensor (IPS), the Piera-1, which uses a breakthrough approach for detecting and measuring the quantity and size of particles in any medium (initially air).  Piera-1 is a cost-effective solution to detect much smaller particles (<PM0.1) with superior accuracy, and to distinguish their sizes in real-time. For the first time, taking advantage of Piera-1, applications can be developed related to air quality monitoring. The resulting data on Particulate Matter enables calculation of its mass and concentration, and the data signature can be analyzed using Machine Learning/AI to classify the components.

An example is Canāree, a detector that can identify and discriminate cigarette and vape smoke, including its mass concentration, dissipation and overall air quality. When deployed in public spaces or homes, Canāree will reduce the impact of vaping and smoking affecting the public health. To learn more about Piera Systems, please visit enables the rapid development of computer vision deep learning models without coding, by providing a visual, interactive system that lets you build accurate visual classifier and labeling models in minutes to a few hours. The system can label thousands of images after you label a few hundred, and then builds your model. Iterate until you reach the desired precision. Predictions can be exported as files, and the models can be moved to mobile phones or other devices.

For developers of CV solutions, saves countless dollars and time. For AI experts that want to build their own models, solves the problems (expense, time, accuracy) of label farms, and amplifies your output. Domain experts that want to build their own AI but don't know how can now create them. Camera and silicon providers can to build out developer and applications ecosystems.
