Phaidra is an industrial AI company. We create self-learning, intelligent control systems for industrial facilities. The physical world today is filled with static infrastructure. Factories, power plants, and other industrial facilities are frozen in time -- they operate in the same way they've operated for decades because their control systems are hard-coded.
