MISSION & VISION

We believe in the power of AI to improve lives

To get there, AI must become more sustainable and accessible. Our goal is to empower creators to harness the transformative power of ML to build intelligent applications.

OctoAI makes AI more sustainable through efficient model execution and automation to scale services and reduce engineering burden. We make AI more accessible by enabling models to run on a broad set of devices and easier to deploy without specialized skills.

Our Story

OctoAI was spun out of the University of Washington by the creators of Apache TVM, an open source stack for ML portability and performance. TVM enables ML models to run efficiently on any hardware backend, and has quickly become a key part of the architecture of popular consumer devices like Amazon Alexa.

Recognizing the potential for TVM and technologies like it to transform the full scope of the ML lifecycle, OctoAI was born.

What's in a Name?

Thinking about the type of company we wanted to build, we took inspiration from the playful, clever, curious octopus. These unconventional thinkers have a unique, distributed intelligence that spans their entire body.

They are adaptive enough to camouflage at a moment’s notice, and creative enough to complete puzzles, build gardens, and use tools. Plus, like any good engineer, they love to take things apart.
