Fifth Generation Computer Corporation has been an innovator of design solutions since the Company’s inception. We have developed products for a variety of industrial and military uses. Our goal is to expand our design solution services in partnership with our business partners and others.

 

Fifth Generation Computer Corp. (FGC) was founded in New York in 1984 to design and develop special purpose parallel processors used in pattern matching applications. FGC's designs are based on patents first assigned to Columbia University by the Defense Department and now assigned solely to the Company. In 1985, FGC entered into teaming agreements with AT&T to obtain a significant DARPA contract under the U. S. Defense Department's Strategic Computer Program to design and develop a Multiprocessor System based on FGC's novel and

innovative parallel processors. The contract was awarded to AT&T and FGC, as its major subcontractor, in 1986 and proved to be very successful in demonstrating aunique parallel processing approach to real-time continuous speech recognition and other military applications. Over the following two years:

 

  • FGC built the first prototype of a DSP-based massively parallel processor, which led to a major deployment of these units in one of the first Automated Operator Assistance Systems to be implemented in the world.

  • Another version of this prototype, the AT&T BT-100, was deployed in hundreds of military installations around the world for use in applications requiring the power of Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) technology.

In 1998, FGC designed, built and delivered the FGC Speech Recognition Server (SRS), utilizing 42 off-the-shelf Intel Pentium boards, to its second Telephone industry customer, US West, as part of a jointly developed Automated Directory Assistance System (ADAS). For the next seven years, the FGC SRS System handled over 400 million requests without a system failure.


In 1999, a third patent was awarded to the Company for a Parallel Processor.


In 2011, a European patent was granted.


In addition, the Company has a large library of copyrighted software programs, which are available for license.
