Cartesiam, European Leader of Machine Learning Software for Microcontrollers, Opens North American Operations


NEW YORK, NEW YORK, Feb. 22nd, 2019 /PRNewswire/Cartesiam, designer and leader of NanoEdge AItm – the first autonomous embedded machine learning solution running on microcontrollers – announces the opening of its US operations.

A French start-up, Cartesiam, invented NanoEdge AItm, a revolutionary technology enabling Machine Learning and AI analysis in small footprint, low energy devices, including 32-bit microcontrollers. This capability is unique in the market as it enables not only analysis but also learning directly within the microcontroller and this, without the help of a complex cloud infrastructure. Devices equipped with NanoEdge AItm can autonomously learn from their environment, identify anomalies, and send alerts.

Nanoedge AI is a revolutionary approach for MCU based solutions and an enabler for the most advanced solutions with intelligence at the very edge being deployed at a much faster pace and lower cost than solutions requiring complex cloud infrastructures and set-up.

NanoEdge AItm by Cartesiam transforms existing passive devices, essentially intended to capture and transmit data, into powerful analyzers equipped with intelligent and autonomous functions. Manufacturers can analyze complex signatures in complete security, directly within the object, with minimal energy expenditure and without transferring any data to a cloud as we capture, learn and analyze data exactly where the data are generated, directly inside the sensor/MCU

The benefits of Cartesiam’s NanoEdge AITM are quite significant versus traditional solutions:

  • Extreme simplicity of deployment
  • Highly secure environment
  • Greater wealth of analysis
  • Adaptability to changing environments
  • Significantly less energy consumption

Cartesiam’s technology is an Industry game changer, receiving multiple awards at its launch in Europe, addressing a market that adds nearly 13 billion microcontroller-fitted devices annually.

Cartesiam’s offers NanoEdge AITM as embedded software, targeting microcontrollers manufacturers and companies installing microcontrollers into their products, enabling Machine Learning in order to deliver significantly increased value to their clients.

According to Semico Research, annual sales of these processors rose from approximately 7.5 billion in 2010 to 12.3 billion units in 2017, and this increase is expected to continue at a rate of 6.7% in 2018 at 13 billion items, representing a considerable market opportunity for NanoEdge AI™ technology.

Marc Dupaquier, former Global General Manager at IBM and a co-founder of Cartesiam will lead Cartesiam’s North American operations

Marc Dupaquier, an IBM veteran with multiple Senior Executive positions at Big Blue and a US-based software expert for over 20 years, will lead operations after having served on Cartesiam’s  Board since the company’s inception.

Marc Dupaquier comments: “The North American IoT market, the primary consumer of microcontrollers, is the most strategic in the world in terms of size, growth, and innovation. The opening of a subsidiary in the United States is essential, as it provides a decisive boost to Cartesiam’s growth and to place NanoEdge AI™ as an embedded microcontroller market reference. We are delighted to join a vibrant ecosystem, and I am excited at the prospect of managing this subsidiary and look forward to offering Cartesiam’s  NanoEdge AITM Technology to US and Canadian companies willing to rapidly embed Machine Learning into their products.

Michel Rubino, Cartesiam President, explains Dupaquier’s appointment: “An initial investor in Cartesiam until now, Marc Dupaquier was a consultant serving on the company’s Advisory Board. Inspired by this project, he decided to join the team of co-founders and took on operational activities as CEO of the North American subsidiary. We are thrilled with this commitment, marking a decisive step in Cartesiam’s development”.
