Best Tech Startup (Silicon Valley) | SWIM.AI is an edge intelligence software company. Our software platform processes streaming data, enabling real-time analytics, object modeling, and machine learning at the edge. Previously having led Sensity Systems (acquired by Verizon in 2016), founders Rusty Cumpston and Chris Sachs have built a team with a deep understanding of application and networking software stacks. This has led to the creation of SWIM EDX, a unique take on the distributed actor model, which autonomously manages message and service distribution for distributed applications. Unlike most IoT software platforms, SWIM EDX makes use of no open source database technologies (MongoDB, Cassandra, Akka, Kafka, Spark, etc.), and instead opted to implement a completely proprietary software stack in order to optimize for interoperability and efficiency. The SWIM EDX software stack kernel can be compressed to 2MB in size, enabling the deployment of SWIM EDX into a variety of hardware environments. SWIM EDX dynamically composes heterogeneous objects in a distributed system into a single cohesive application, which can be uniformly addressed by application developers. This drastically simplifies the creation and scaling of real-time AR/VR, industrial, autonomous vehicles, Smart City, artificial intelligence, and other applications.
