AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND — August 21, 2018 — Tatau, a technology company delivering cost-effective and efficient computing outcomes to the artificial intelligence industry, today announced the launch of its blockchain-based supercomputing platform.

Tatau is the first commercially-viable decentralized supercomputer pre-configured to perform deep learning and other advanced AI operations. Tatau’s compute pricing is substantially more cost-effective than traditional suppliers. Further, Tatau utilizes a Function-as-a-Service model to deliver computing outcomes as opposed to computer instances.

” said Andrew Fraser, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer.

added Fraser.

Tatau gets its computing supply from existing GPU hardware, typically found in crypto mining and gaming infrastructure, but that is often underutilized or unprofitable from a commercial perspective.

said Martyn Levy, Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officeradded Levy.

Tatau commenced a private token pre-sale in early August 2018, following a successful and over-subscribed USD1.5 million seed round in April 2018, which was led by Techemy Capital.

” says Fran Strajnar, Founder of Techemy Capital.

Under the hood, Tatau uses a blockchain to handle transactions in a secure and transparent way. The Tatau ERC-20 token is the exclusive economic unit on the platform and is used to buy and sell compute, and can be ‘staked’ to reserve future jobs. A proprietary system verifies suppliers’ work, guarding against fraud, and ensuring full privacy.

Tatau’s first product release is now in testing with a select group of customers and partners, leading to a planned commercial release in early 2019.

Tatau is an enterprise-focused, blockchain-based, distributed computing platform that allows anyone to buy and sell computational capacity on decentralized, GPU-based machines. They are helping meet the growing demand for computational power required for complex computations in verticals such as AI/deep learning, video rendering, and predictive analytics.

Tatau, which is headquartered in Malta, was founded by a group of experienced tech entrepreneurs and executives from New Zealand, Israel, and USA. Tatau has offices in Palo Alto and Auckland with extended teams in Israel and Ukraine.
