EdgeQ: founded in 2018, San Francisco startup has taken in $51 million in disclosed funding which came in the form of a Series A that closed in November 2020. Launched by former executives at Broadcom, Intel, and Qualcomm, the startup recently came out of stealth mode to announce – well, it’s hard to tell when looking at their sparse website.
Says a press release by the company, “EdgeQ will address the untapped 5G infrastructure market as the first company to converge 5G connectivity and AI compute onto a system-on-a-chip.” Sprinkle that with some blockchain and they’ll be cooking with gas. Vinay Ravuri, CEO and founder of EdgeQ, told Network World that we’re moving “from a smartphone economy to a constellation of intelligent edge devices.” Essentially, we’re creating a world where everything has a digital twin. Eventually, we’ll be able to create a nested simulation and move one more iteration from base. (According to Elon Musk, there’s a one in a billion chance that we’re not in the base simulation.) And after that crazy tangent, we’ll move on to talking about 5G antennas.
