SiMa.ai has announced a new design center in Bengaluru, India. It said that the investment will accelerate the company’s engineering and operations team, opening up new in-region job opportunities for board development, operations, infrastructure, and system application roles.
Krishna Rangasayee, founder and CEO of SiMa.ai, said, “The embedded edge market is ripe for disruption and machine learning has moved from nice to have to must-have. Our vision is to build our customers an innovative ML platform that ultimately helps scale the widespread adoption across important embedded edge applications, such as robotics, medical, and autonomous vehicles.
