LightOn unlocks Transformative AI
We develop Photonic Computing for Transformative AI

LightOn is re-defining computing for some of today’s largest challenges in AI and HPC. We develop new photonic computing hardware, orders of magnitude more efficient than silicon chips. Either seamlessly integrated into existing computing pipelines, or leveraging optimized algorithms, LightOn’s technology makes it radically easier to process large-scale data. With massive models now more accessible, we provide unique tools to unlock their tremendous economic, societal, and scientific impact.

Our technology is currently available to a large community of users (Data Scientists, Machine Learning Scientists and Engineers) through the LightOn Cloud or on-premises with the LightOn Appliance. Founded in 2016, LightOn is funded by Quantonation and Anorak Ventures.

LightOn releases LightOn Appliance, the most powerful photonic AI / HPC co-processor on the market today

LightOn releases PAGnol, a collection of large French language models, geared towards free-form text generation.

PAGnol is a collection of large French language models, geared towards free-form text generation.

With 1.5 billion parameters, PAGnol-XL is the largest model available for the French language. PAGnol is based on the GPT architecture and uses scaling laws predictions for efficient training. PAGnol is the first language model trained by LightOn, in cooperation with the ALMAnaCH team of Inria
