Founders <br />


Our journey began in the esteemed Efficient Computing Systems lab at the University of Toronto, under the leadership of our CEO, Gennady Pekhimenko. Today, the EcoSystems lab stands proudly as one of the world’s foremost authorities in Machine Learning Systems.

Our founding team is made up of experts in AI, ML compilers and ML hardware and has led efforts at companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft Research, Nvidia, Intel, and IBM. United by our common mission, we have come together to accelerate the landscape of AI by tackling the critical issue of limited resources and accessibility. Our journey is not just about innovation; it’s about pushing the boundaries of what’s achievable, so that AI is not hindered by hardware constraints.
