Lyric Labs | Analog Devices, Inc.
1 Broadway, Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA
What is the GPU of machine learning? Can we redefine how processors work to make statistical inference more efficient? How can we democratize machine learning and make it available to 1000x more people?
These are just some of the problems scientists at Lyric Labs are working on. Lyric Labs, a division of Analog Devices, is the world leader in developing novel combinations of hardware and software to solve challenging real-world problems. Our team is working in areas such as core machine learning, probabilistic programming, and hardware accelerated Bayesian inference with applications in audio processing, communications infrastructure processing, timeseries modeling, vital signs monitoring and low-power semantic signal processing.
Our research scientists define and execute long-term
research projects, develop innovative algorithms and
hardware solutions, and work with Analog Devices to
incorporate their technology into real-world products
that impact millions of people. They stay current on
state-of-the-art algorithms, technologies and theories,
and maintain world-class academic credentials through
publications, presentations, external collaborations,
