Traditional computer architecture needs a rethink.

Temporal technology.

Forty years of prolific advances in data processing have generated massive progress in information communication and processing. But today the energy demand on devices is forcing even the most sophisticated computer processors to reach their performance limits. Autonomous processing and developments in devices used for AI and Cryptocurrencies are causing current electronic systems and future generations to outgrow energy available. As models become more complex energy demand will increase.

Game-changing tech: Fit for the future.

Temporal technology is primed to revolutionise computing and be the next platform for technological advances. We’re developing an entirely new form of computation for the AI era, one that has the potential to be a game-changer so powerful it will lead world-changing progression through technology. Our technology could accelerate computation, increase processing capacity and reduce energy consumption to tackle modern-day computational limits and address the global energy challenge.

Ground-breaking innovations: Pioneering tomorrow's technology.

The novel concept relies on time to represent data; it’s the result of a scientific, theoretical and fundamental rethink on traditional computer architecture. The innovative technology could have the capacity to deliver a future-proof model for modern-day computational tasks, and it’s just the beginning. Our pioneering innovations will create pathways for faster and more efficient designs for the new breed of electronic applications, putting us at the centre of the ‘trillion device future’.

Jonathan Edwards MPhil

Founder & CEO

Joanne Edwards BA

Founder & COO

Jonathan is the inventor, developer and main advocate for the use of time as data and for temporal arithmetics. He is the first-author of all publications related to the technology, publishing at major international conferences (including IEEE) as a visiting researcher with University of York Non-standard Computational Research Group.

The current focus of his work is aimed at approaching the problem on a more formal level, and to evaluate novel implementation mediums. Jonathan is our technical CEO and the driving force behind the temporal processing concept.

Joanne leads the company operations, financial management and together with the Temporal team, sets the strategic direction to enable the evolution of the Temporal concept. As a specialist in grant funding, Joanne has secured an Innovate UK grant to advance the concept and has been successful in placing Temporal Computing as one of 12 shortlisted Digital Investment Showcase companies.

Her experience in business strategy, development and financial management forms the backbone of the company’s journey from concept to commercialisation.
