Xeiam LLC was formed in 2010 as a legal entity and joint venture of Tim Molter and Alex Nugent to encompass several
Java open-source projects which were created at the time.
Our open source projects Yank,
form a core set of tools (data management, scheduling, and charting), which can be used to form a basic backbone of larger applications.
While these tools already existed in one form or another, we wanted less complicated and more intuitive software which
did the job more efficiently. We strive to be leaders in the open-source community and foster friendly and effective team work, both
as project leaders and as contributors ourselves.
In 2012, we started a new open-source project called XChange , which is a financial exchange library for Java, mainly for Bitcoin exchanges. We're really excited about Bitcoin and the doors that Bitcoin opens to new and exciting applications that have never been possible before. One experiemntal project we've just started is at bitcoinium.com. We'll soon be rolling out even more projects that are related to Bitcoin as well.
More recently, we've formed a partnership with KnowmTech and MANC Research and Development in an effort to build the world's first brain on a chip, also known as a neural processing unit (NPU). We've been working on an analog circuit simulator which allows us to perform large scale mixed-signal memristor circuit simulations. We've also been developing a software SDK, which allows for the simulation of higher-level functional machine learning capabilities and also maps to low-level memristive circuit simulations. We have a publication in the pipeline and a new program coming up next month. Xeiam will act as a curator and host to software and hardware projects that come out of MANC R&D and drive the projects forward to commercialization.
Tim Molter is a research scientist with degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering specializing in software development and project management. After becoming aware of the power of writing a program during a Computational Physics course as an undergraduate, Tim has since been drawn to several ambitious technology projects both professionally and privately. As a published research engineer at the University of Washington, he co-developed an automated single-cell biological device for the MLSC. He then transitioned into finance by building a real-time trading platform for a small start-up hedge fund and taking a job at an international bank in Munich coding mission-critical market data interfaces. Tim is currently doing research and development in the field of artificial intelligence.
Alex Nugent is an inventor and consultant at the intersection of Physics, Computation and Biology. As an undergraduate Physics major Alex pondered the physics of brains, which led him to discoveries uniting self-organization and information processing. This work has led to over 20 patents and the formation of KnowmTech LLC, an IP holding company for Alex’s work. Alex was instrumental in the creation of DARPA’s SyNAPSE (Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics) and PI (Physical Intelligence) programs, which he advised. Alex is currently working toward the commercialization of his technology related to hybrid CMOS/Memristor adaptive electronics and helping to launch the field of thermodynamic computing.
