NeuReality is an innovative semiconductor start-up designing the next evolution of AI-as-a-service infrastructure.
NeuReality focused on bringing to market AI hardware for cloud data centers and “edge” computers, or machines that run on-premises and do most of their data processing offline.
NeuReality was founded in 2019 by Moshe Tanach, Tzvika Shmueli and Yossi Kasus. The company is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel.
NeuReality's current-generation product lineup, the Network Attached Processing Unit (NAPU), is optimized for AI inference applications, including computer vision (think algorithms that recognize objects in photos), natural language processing (text-generating and classifying systems) and recommendation engines.
NeuReality’s NAPU is essentially a hybrid of multiple types of processors. It can perform functions like AI inferencing load balancing, job scheduling and queue management. Its NR1, an FPGA-based SKU within the NAPU family, is a network-attached “server on a chip” with an embedded AI inferencing accelerator along with networking and virtualization capabilities.
NeuReality also delivers a set of tools, including a software development kit for cloud and local workloads, a deployment manager to help with runtime issues and a monitoring dashboard. Partners include IBM, AMD, Lenovo, among others.
NeuReality is backed by Samsung Ventures, Cardumen Capital, Varana Capital, OurCrowd, XT Hi-Tech, SK Hynix, Cleveland Avenue, Korean Investment Partners, StoneBridge, and Glory Ventures. The company raised $35M in a Series A round on Dec 06, 2022. This brings NeuReality's total funding to $48M to date.
