At Xailient, our vision is a world of seamless and pervasive AI assistance. Our mission is to enable makers and innovators of Smart Cameras to bring their visions to life.

We’ve transformed our algorithmic efficiency into a process that empowers companies to bring AI products and features to market faster, more accessible, and with less investment to compete in the emerging AI-IoT world.

Xailient’s technology, in all our partner POCs, undertakes the role of a trusted sentinel. From protecting precious bees to detecting enemy submarines from space, Xailient’s Edge Computer Vision can accurately identify threats and send timely alerts to the relevant personnel. This applies to our Face Recognition technology within smart home IoT devices. But in all these cases, this technology isn’t ‘set and forget.’ Thankfully, with Orchestrait, Edge AI models and algorithms can be monitored, updated, and checked for privacy compliance in an automated and sustainable way. This means that the AI performing vital tasks like protecting our houses, oceans, and essential pollinators is always in top shape.
