Our Story

Duality was founded in the fall of 2018 with the goal of solving a complex challenge: how to accurately simulate complex environmental scenarios, and use them to gain insights via real-time responses from sensors and machines.

Founders Apurva Shah and Mike Taylor each brought a vital piece of the puzzle: Apurva, deeply rooted in the graphics world, worked on the Oscar-winning film pipeline at Pixar studios, while Mike pushed the frontier of robotics, leading Caterpillar Inc teams in building massive field robots and winning the DARPA Urban Challenge with CMU.

Together they assembled a cross-disciplinary team holding over 70 patents across robotics, simulation, and visualization — and uniquely capable of tackling this multifaceted challenge.

Our headquarters are located in San Mateo, California and our team is spread out across three continents. We are distributed in nature, but singular in our focus.
