Our Mission

To create a better world by providing the tools necessary for building intelligent robots that can advance humanity and enhance productivity

Our Story

Our founders have spent many years working at the frontiers of artificial intelligence, robotics, numerical algorithms, multi-agent systems, distributed systems, cryptography, and computer architecture. They founded Lemurian Labs to build a platform to make it easier for robotics companies to build, test, and deploy multi-robot systems in production.However, they quickly learned that we were unlikely to benefit from autonomous robots because there was a tremendous gap between what the workloads needed from hardware, and what legacy hardware were capable of delivering. And so, they pivoted to build the processor that would allow humanity to fully realize the benefits of autonomous robots.

Our Culture

Move with urgency & focus

Our customers depend on us to do our jobs, so that they can do theirs well. Millions of robots around the world will be deployed to solve critical problems and elevate humanity only when we deliver. When we mess up, miss a deadline, or slow down, it matters. We take this responsibility seriously.

Be humble & over-trust

By the standards of the rest of the world, we over-trust. We’re okay with that. Trust and respect yourself, your teammates, and your leaders.Everyone knows something you don’t, learn from them instead of trying to prove you’re right or smarter.

Use failure as an accellerant

We accept failure as a possibility, and celebrate our failures because we are learning.
We value experiments and view everything as one. It allows us to get better information and make better decisions faster.

Communicate clearly & concisely

We focus on listening intently and understanding others point of view before responding to avoid miscommunications.

Be a constructive contrarian

At Lemurian we encourage bold, new ideas. We are not fearful of speaking our mind and offering new perspectives. Great ideas are not built in a vacuum, they need to be challenged.

Think differently

We go in search of the right questions to ask, before we search for answers. Only by reasoning from first principles can we truly address our customers problems.We are not afraid of challenging the status quo. We set and pursue ambitious goals in the face of skepticism and are not afraid of being temporarily misunderstood.
