7 years of Research and Development
We are often glued to our smartphones. Yet, we mostly interact with the smartphone "computer" by looking at a tiny 6-inch screen. The speed of today's human-computer interaction (HCI) is slow, similar to modems of the early 90s. This has bothered Ixana's co-founders for more than a decade. They have worked independently as well as together to make HCI faster, more effective, and more efficient.
The what and why of faster HCI have been clear for years. Faster modems led to Web1.0, fast cellular data led to Web 2.0. Faster HCI would herald new markets. But, how to significantly speed up human-computer interfaces eluded us until recently. Ixana's founder and CTO, Shreyas had the insight that distributed computing could transform HCI and high communication energy is the bottleneck to it. Realizing this, Shreyas and his research team invented Wi-R, an orders of magnitude energy-efficient and secure communication with transformative impact on HCI. Building on the insight and the inventions, the team at Ixana has already made significant strides towards making faster, more efficient HCI a reality.
