(9 Months)Neural Pixels, LLC Austin, TX
I have considered myself a machine learning researcher for over 5 years now. There is very little machine learning software that is cross-platform and can run with very low end requirements. My goal with Neural Pixels was to fill that void. At the time of this writing, we have 3 desktop softwares avaliable for Mac and Windows. I designed the models inside of each using Python and Tensorflow. The softwares themselves are all Electron based written in Typescript with React. For the inference engine, I am currently using Tensorflow.js, which does the computation with WebGL, which allows the software to run with GPU acceleration on almost any hardware without the need for CUDA, or even a GPU.
I do not have any employees, instead, I do everything myself, which is about 5 full time jobs, and it feels like it as well. My wife thankfully handles all of the social media, which is a big help. We have had some succcess, but we really need to run a large advertising campaign to get better adoption, which is not a financial possibility at the time.
