Alphapura is a seed stage R&D company, located close to Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Financial District, focused on developing the first patent family for Artificially-Intelligent Recycling Manufacturing Systems (ARMS). Alphapura is expected to disrupt manufacturing, retail, and e-commerce, by allowing for on-demand product acquisition for a million different product designs, and reducing the cost of products, labor, training, production, consumables, logistics, and overheads.
Alphapura was founded by former UOP graduate business faculty member, and former Stanford University research professional, Frederick Janson, MBA, based on five USPTO patent applications, the last of which was granted in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. One of those patent applications was submitted by Frederick Janson and Ratan Daniel, formerly an HP IT professional and project manager. All patent rights have been allocated to Alphapura Robotics by legal agreement.
Alphapura's founding story started with Frederick designing, patenting, and prototyping the world's first 3D-printed water purifier or solar still, able to transform dirty and salt water into drinkable water, to solve the fresh water and food access crises on Earth. Unfortunately, the cost of 3D printing filament was cost-prohibitive. To overcome the same, Frederick et al designed, patented, and prototyped the first recycling manufacturing system in the world, to be powered by renewable energy, and later added artificial intelligence, network communications, and other patent claims.
