Phaidra creates AI-powered control systems for industrial manufacturing. Our reinforcement learning algorithms enable customers to massively improve their energy efficiency, sustainability, process stability, and yield.

We do not require new hardware or sensors. Our cloud-based intelligence service integrates directly with existing SCADA / DCS / BMS control systems for optimal closed-loop process control. Most importantly: these AI control systems automatically learn and self-improve based upon the sensor data — which means performance increases automatically over time.

We’re best known for our work on Google’s data centers (40% cooling energy reduction), and have since expanded this technology to other mission-critical industries (e.g. pharmaceuticals, chemicals, paper & pulp, etc.). Please reach out if you’d like to learn more!
