Kraenion is an applied machine learning company developing a visual cortex (a "brain in a box") for machines that interact with the physical world. Our vision algorithms, stereo camera technology, sensors and compute hardware together deliver integrated perception solutions for robotics and industrial machinery. The company was founded in 2017 by Dr. Binu Mathew and is located in Silicon Valley. In 2018, we won a highly coveted innovation grant from the National Science Foundation.
Binu MathewBinu served as a Senior Scientist in Apple's Exploratory Design Group for 10 years during which he invented and prototyped far-out technologies and lead the rapid transition of technology solutions to products. While most of his work is "classified", he designed the key algorithms for image registration that made HDR photography on the iPhone possible. He architected machine learning software (specifically, the predecessor of this API) that shipped on millions of Apple devices. He was also the architect of low-power ML hardware blocks present on some iPhone and Apple Watch SoCs. Prior to Apple, Binu founded Satva Designs, a machine learning software company.
Binu received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Utah and did post-doctoral research at Stanford University. His dissertation focused on computer architecture for accelerating vision and speech recognition.

We are a small team looking for exceptional members. We like passionate, driven, quirky, whacky, people who are a bit different. If you have been blamed for being too rational, too results oriented, or having too refined a sense of aesthetics and design you will fit right in. Non-traditional educational backgrounds are welcome. The being exceptional part is non-negotiable.
