Industrial Process Automation
We are re-designing industrial automation in the era of IoT and cloud computing. Our technology makes industrial automation smarter, easier to deploy and evolve, hence, more scalable.
Dr. Kenneth Tran always has a passion for innovating technology to solve real-world problems. Over 7 years working at Microsoft Research, he specialized in optimal control for industries, using reinforcement learning techniques. In 2017, Tran became interested in indoor agriculture and saw potentials for intelligent automation solutions to transform the industry. Under his leadership, the Microsoft team won the Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge 2018.
But it was his personal background that truly motivated the establishment of Koidra. Growing up in a family with a manufacturing background, Tran architected his family-owned wood pellet factory where he encountered challenges of obsolete data analytics and operation technology. That experience drove him to combine world-leading machine learning research and industrial control expertise to create intelligent automation solutions that disrupt the incumbent manufacturing industries. Today, Koidra is a pioneer and leader in this space. Tran’s passion for solving real-world problems continues to push the company forward as he remains committed to using technology to create a better, more sustainable world.
Koidra’s culture is built upon a foundation of values that drive our actions and relationships. By positioning customers at the forefront of everything we do, we constantly innovate to help them operate more efficiently, sustainably and continuously. Our core principles include transparency, ownership, bias for action, and more.
