20 Feb Machine intelligence startup launches with plans to create new industry model
Texas-based Hypergiant has officially launched this morning with plans to provide a new industry model for machine intelligence and a commitment to providing business outcomes through technology. Leveraging platform products and services to create powerful technology solutions and smarter, more efficient workforces, the new startup will work with major brands to make every aspect of their business more intelligent.
“Starting today, machine intelligence isn’t a black box of magic tricks and empty promises, it’s purpose-built products and services that achieve business results,” said CEO Ben Lamm.
Hypergiant aims to help Fortune 500 companies improve operations through machine intelligence technologies as well as space-age solutions.
“Hypergiant solves the over-promise and under-deliver problem in AI by completely rethinking not just the process and delivery focus of AI products and services, but the entire company model itself,” said Ben Lamm, co-founder and executive chairman of Hypergiant in a press release.
At its launch, Hypergiant has over 10 Fortune 500 customers, including TGI Friday’s, Bosch and Schlumberger, as well as five strategic partnerships with GE and Adobe.
In order to capitalize on new technologies, the company’s operations are split into three divisions: Hypergiant Space Age Solutions, which provides machine intelligence consulting to companies; Hypergiant Applied Sciences, which experiments and creates new machine intelligence technology; and Hypergiant Ventures, which invests in innovative machine intelligence companies.
Hypergiant was founded in August of 2017 by Ben Lamm, who has founded other startups including Conversable and Chaotic Moon Studios; John Fremont, the previous managing director and Artificial Intelligence Lead for Accenture; and Will Womble, the managing directory and Energy/Oil & Gas Go-To-Market Lead fo rNorth America at Accenture.
Hypergiant is based in Texas with offices in Austin, Dallas and Houston. The startup has received investments from Mythic Ventures, Align Capital and Beringer Capital. More information can be found on their site.
