Optius is a recently formed start-up that uses light to solve one of the biggest problems in modern computation: Time and energy consumption of data transfer. We believe that emerging technologies, like autonomous driving, will benefit significantly from our technology. The extremely fast computation would allow true and robust real-time decision making. We foresee applications for Artificial Intelligence, Big data, High-performance computing, Autonomous driving, and High-frequency trading.
