Lucata Wins 2022 BIG Innovation Award
New York City – Jan. 20, 2022 – Lucata Corporation, provider of a next generation computing architectural extension to Intel® technology for high performance, massively scalable graph analytics processing, today announced continued strong momentum for 2021. Major accomplishments included raising a Series B funding round, naming highly respected members to Lucata’s Boards, launching the Lucata Pathfinder graph analytics processing server and demonstrating its tremendous performance advantages over conventional computing, and receiving recognition for Lucata’s products based on the company’s patented Migratory Thread technology.
“2021 was a remarkable year for Lucata as we increased our funding, continued building our organization, introduced our technology to the market, and successfully demonstrated its power to transform graph analytics,” said Michael Maulick, Lucata CEO. “From deadly diseases and ever-rising threat of cyberattacks, to rampant financial fraud, our society is faced with challenges that only a major advance in computing hardware technology can address. Lucata Pathfinder enables organizations to use existing software to uncover much deeper connections within much larger graphs than possible today using conventional computing technology. This allows them to reimagine the potential of graph analytics. Beyond analytics, Lucata will also greatly reduce failures in AI and ML by eliminating the bias introduced from the pruning and sharding of data. 2022 promises to be a very exciting year as we deliver our technology at scale into the hands of customers.”

Lucata Pathfinder enables organizations to leverage massive pools of physical memory to accelerate and scale graph analytics and AI and ML model training by orders of magnitude beyond the capabilities of conventional computing approaches. The solution enables high-performance exascale graph analytics, including exhaustive breadth-first search (BFS), on unpruned, unsharded massive graph databases. Lucata can be used with open source, commercial graph software or with custom-written graph solutions that leverage LAGraph, GraphBLAS, or the Lucata library of algorithms, enabling organizations to use their existing software to uncover much deeper connections within much larger graphs than possible today. These unique capabilities allow organizations to reimagine the potential of graph analytics, AI and ML and address intractable challenges in fraud detection, cybersecurity, blockchain, risk assessment, healthcare and many other fields. Lucata delivers extreme, high performance for a broad range of common Big Data computing use cases which cannot be cost-effectively addressed with conventional computer architectures.
