Neurala wants to help make drones more intelligent with its newly announced Neurala Developers Program. The program is designed to enable developers to integrate the Neural Brain into their applications. The Neurala Brian is a deep learning neural networks platform that aims to make solutions smarter by mimicking biological perception and navigation in software.
"The Neurala Brain is giving our drones autonomy and control that would not otherwise be possible,” said George Matus, founder and CEO of Teal Drones. Teal Drones is one of the first drone providers to bundle Neurala technology into their drones. "Neurala's real-time, deep learning software is powerful and versatile—and we believe it will find many compelling applications in the hands of the larger developer community."
The developer program features a set of C++ APIs, testing tools, code examples, and a working program with source code. In addition, mobile wrappers are available for Android and iOS. Developers can easily give drones the ability to learn, adapt and interact in real time without having extensive resources of skill sets.
“The artificial intelligence capabilities we once saw as futuristic possibilities are becoming realities. Now anyone can easily integrate a deep learning neural network in an app,” said Massimiliano “Max” Versace, Neurala co-founder and CEO. "We've spent years developing The Neurala Brain so that a variety of devices can benefit from bio-inspired brainpower. As we make this technology available to developers for everyday projects, we look forward to witnessing the resulting proliferation of products that can learn, see and act more autonomously."
Developers can also use Neurala’s program to add AI to self-driving cars, cameras, toys and other products.
