Company Description:
Sync Computing is a venture backed company funded by The Engine and spun out of MIT Lincoln Laboratory. We have developed an electronic circuit capable of solving optimization problems exponentially faster than today’s most advanced computers. The Sync technology is capable of realizing many of the gains envisioned by quantum computers, but is entirely built with standard electronic components, and can leverage the low costs and massive scales of the microelectronics industry. We seek to revolutionize the existing digital computing paradigm, with applications in materials simulations, drug discovery, machine learning, logistics, and encryption.
