A long time ago, to move faster and to help relieve themselves from heavy jobs, Humans invented the wheel.

In the last decade, we have developed AI to complement our brains, to go further, and open new horizons.

And yet, to conquer the most complex and challenging opportunities, AI must be reliable and able to deliver in mission-critical applications. 

Today, Mentium brings the most dependable AI at the Edge, providing co-processors capable of Cloud-quality inference at ultra-low power to tackle the most complex and critical AI applications.

Mirko co-founded and led Mentium in the first three years during technology development and de-risking.
He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Parma University, Italy. He worked at National Research Council in Bologna on the spintronic-memristive effects in organic materials and then moved to the University of California in Santa Barbara where he joined the Prof. Strukov’s group to pursue his interests in memristive systems.

Mirko’s background is in theoretical condensed matter physics, he has a long experience in experimental semiconductor physics, device fabrication and their simulation.
With an extensive experience in neuromorphic computation and Neural Networks, he was the lead scientist for the first demonstration of neuromorphic hardware based on integrated memristors.



Farnood is the leading technologist behind Mentium’s products and certainly one of the maximum expert today in neuromorphic computational architectures.
He received his M.Sc. and first Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran. He then joined the Computer Engineering Department of University of California Santa Barbara to earn his second Ph.D. where he later served as a Postdoc for two years. Farnood worked in the fields of signal processing, fuzzy logic, approximate computing, analog circuit design, nanoelectronics and neuro-fuzzy computing systems but his current research interests are in the design and hardware implementation of high-performance deep neural networks and neuromorphic systems based on nanoelectronics memory devices such as memristor and floating-gate (flash) transistor. Notably, he was the lead scientist for the first successful demonstration of large-scale neural network hardware based on integrated floating-gate transistors.
