OAKLAND, Calif., Dec 14 (Reuters) - EnCharge AI, a chip startup born at a Princeton University lab, on Wednesday said it raised $21.7 million as it looks to commercialize its computing technology that is designed to run artificial intelligence applications more efficiently.
Its first products will be cards that can be easily slotted into server racks for companies to run AI applications, said Naveen Verma, CEO and co-founder of EnCharge AI and a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Princeton. He didn’t give a timeline for the product launch.
EnCharge AI chips work by computing data directly in the memory on the chip, using a special chip design and software. As AI models become more diverse and larger, more efficient computing is key, said Verma, and the traditional way of moving data in and out of memory causes bottlenecks in computing, slowing things down.
The technology was originally funded by the U.S. Department of Defense's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and RD was funded by the Department of Defense, the company said. DARPA, which works on weapons, is credited with creating the internet and runs public contests for human-looking robots and self-driving cars.
The chips will first be used in factories, warehouses and retail spaces to run AI applications, said Verma. He said for now they will be focused on doing inference work - for example, identifying if something is a dog or a cat rather than training a machine to learn what a dog or a cat is.
EnCharge AI said the latest funding round was led by Anzu Partners with participation from AlleyCorp, Scout Ventures, Silicon Catalyst Angels, Schams Ventures, E14 Fund and Alumni Ventures.

AI DeFi Blog is a leading resource for all things related to blockchain-based finance and virtual currencies. Our team of experts is dedicated to providing our readers with the newest news, insights, and analysis on the ever-changing world of DeFi. At AI DeFi Blog, we are excited about all things DeFi, from margin trading to yield farming and beyond. We believe that DeFi has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about finance and financial systems, and we are excited to be a part of this expanding movement. One of the main features of DeFi is that it is built on blockchain technology, which allows for decentralized transactions that do not require a third party, such as a bank, to facilitate. This means that you can take control of your own financial transactions and assets, which can be especially appealing to those who are skeptical of traditional financial systems. DeFi also facilitates greater accessibility and inclusion, as it enables anyone with an internet connection to participate in financial transactions and activities. This is particularly important in countries where traditional financial systems may be less advanced or inaccessible. In addition to DeFi, we also cover a wide range of topics related to cryptocurrency, including bitcoin, altcoins, mining, and more. We understand that the world of cryptocurrency can be daunting, especially for those who are new to the space. That's why we strive to provide our readers with concise and user-friendly content that covers the most important aspects of cryptocurrency and DeFi. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just getting started, we've got something for you. Our goal is to offer our readers with the knowledge and tools they need to navigate the thrilling world of DeFi and cryptocurrency. So join us as we uncover the exhilarating world of DeFi and cryptocurrency as a team! From margin trading to yield farming and beyond, we've got you covered.
