LGN — world leading edge AI innovations.

LGN is an edge AI software vendor, founded by leading MIT and Oxbridge academics, backed by the world's top mobility investors, with commercial operations in the UK, US and Europe.

Professor Vladimir Čeperić

Professor Čeperić is a double PHD research scientist specialising in on-chip artificial intelligence at the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering & Computing. He has an MBA and a wide range of industrial experience advising companies like Bosch, Ericsson, Infineon and On Semi.

As a visiting professor at MIT, he developed an on-chip optical neural network running at the speed of light. His fundamental interest in the intersection between optical signal processing, on chip artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms led to the formation of LGN.


Dr Luke Robinson

Dr Robinson has a PhD in Quantum Computing from Cambridge University and is a Research Fellow of both Cambridge and Oxford. He has founded a range of AI and deep-tech companies, including CS Photonics, Earth Rover, Flox, Hazy, Sociate and Sunfish Energy.

Having first collaborated with Professor Čeperić on the use of quantum beam shaping to improve LiDAR resilience, their shared interest in in the intersection between optical computing and deep learning algorithms led them to form LGN together with Daniel Warner.


Daniel Warner

Daniel Warner has a BEng in Electrical and Electronic engineering. He begun his career designing manufacturing lines for major manufacturers including BMW. During his time at Apple he was part of the team responsible for opening new stores around Europe, before moving into the adtech industry, where he built teams from the ground up as a startup founder and CEO.

Daniel and Luke first collaborated on a mobility sensor company to push for new levels of safety in cities. They share a passion for improving how things work and using cutting edge technology to achieve that goal.


James Arthur

James is a software developer and entrepreneur. Along with Luke, he created deep tech venture builder Post Urban, generating $50 million of portfolio value in 4 years.

He was co-founder and CTO of synthetic data company Hazy, winner of the $1 million Microsoft Prize for the best AI startup in Europe. He also co-founded and was CTO of open source furniture company Opendesk, backed by Vitra, and the TED Prize winning WikiHouse construction system.

Before that James co-founded environmental TV channel green.tv, built the mass participation tools for Earth Hour, developed video publishing systems for Apple and oversaw the development of IDEO's social design platform, OpenIDEO.com.


Unique, patent pending technology

LGN views the world through a unique latent space "lens".

A compact yet powerful description of space and temporal observations that's optimised for AI-to-AI communications.

This core latent space technology allows us to efficiently detect interesting and surprising elements of a scene, optimally compress data for AI and increase the resiliency of AI systems.

Inspired by the human perception system

The name LGN is a compressed representation of INTELLIGENCE.

It was inspired by the Lateral Geniculate Nucleus, a relay that sits in between the retina and visual cortex in our brains, filtering information and directing our attention.

As sensor deployments and data volumes grow exponentially, the need to filter and direct attention on the important information is accelerating.

LGN's core technology can be understood as an artificial Lateral Geniculate Nucleus for artifical intelligence.

Backed by the world's leading mobility investors.

LGN is backed by investors including Trucks, InMotion, Luminous, AI Seed and Post Urban.
