Mission & Vision
At OctoML, we believe in the power of AI to improve lives. But to get there, AI must become more sustainable and accessible. Our goal is to empower more creators to harness the transformative power of ML to build intelligent applications.
OctoML makes AI more sustainable through efficient model execution and automation to scale services and reduce engineering burden. We make AI more accessible by enabling models to run on a broad set of devices and easier to deploy without specialized skills.
OctoML was spun out of the University of Washington by the creators of Apache TVM, an open source stack for ML portability and performance. TVM enables ML models to run efficiently on any hardware backend, and has quickly become a key part of the architecture of popular consumer devices like Amazon Alexa.
Recognizing the potential for TVM and technologies like it to transform the full scope of the ML lifecycle, OctoML was born.
What's in a Name?
Thinking about the type of company we wanted to build, we took inspiration from the playful, clever, curious octopus. These unconventional thinkers have a unique, distributed intelligence that spans their entire body.
They are adaptive enough to camouflage at a moment’s notice, and creative enough to complete puzzles, build gardens, and use tools. Plus, like any good engineer, they love to take things apart.
We are searching for bright, talented, curious Octonauts to join us!

How OctoML is designed to deliver faster and lower cost inferencing
2022 will go down as the year that the general public awakened to the power and potential of AI. Apps for chat, copywriting, coding and art dominated the media conversation and took off at warp speed. But the rapid pace of adoption is a blessing and a curse for technology companies and startups who must now reckon with the staggering cost of deploying and running AI in production.
OctoML attended AWS re:Invent 2022
Last week, 14 Octonauts headed out to AWS re:Invent. We gave more than 200 demos showing how OctoML helps you save on your AI/ML journey, and gave away a dream trip to one lucky winner.
