Hypergiant announces the launch of new AI startup
Hypergiant is in the news again. The game changing Texas-based startup announced the launch today of Hypergiant Sensory Sciences, an independent software company within Hypergiant Industries that will leverage AI to provide a fundamentally new way of engaging virtually with physical environments.Hypergiant Sensory Sciences is the brainchild of renowned entrepreneurs and AI experts Dave Copps, Chris Rohde, and Ben Lamm. In 2007, Copps and Rohde combined to form Brainspace and built a machine learning platform for digital investigations that sold as part of a $2.8 billion deal with Cyxtera in 2017.
With an expertise in artificial intelligence and unstructured data, Sensory Sciences is pioneering a new path towards the future when it comes to machine perception and sensory search. Its core technology combines sensor networks, deep learning, and modeling software to create AI-powered digital copies of real-world scenes. The company is extending the science of spatial computing to encompass a learning layer that enables organizations to sense, learn and alert when important things happen in their physical environments, thus making them operate faster and more efficiently.
“As we looked deeper into this opportunity we started to see a vision of how emerging technologies like deep learning and modeling software could reshape and amplify our ability to perceive physical environments. With new learning methods we saw that we could even create learning networks by connecting multiple environments,” said Dave Copps, CEO of Hypergiant Sensory Sciences.
The company’s initial focus will be on critical infrastructure, in industries where learning from multiple physical environments is key. Their first target industries include the Oil & Gas industry, the Department of Defense and Healthcare.
Hypergiant Sensory Sciences Series A was led by Align Capital out of Austin, Texas and included Capital Factory, GPG Ventures in Dallas among others.
