cortical.io, a Vienna, Austria-based science startup, raised $1.25m in seed funding.
The company intends to use the funds to bring its portfolio of language intelligence products to the global app-builder and enterprise market.
Reventon (NL) made the investment.
Founded in 2011 based on the neuroscience theory of Jeff Hawkins, cortical.io has developed semantic fingerprinting technology. Its Retina API (api.cortical.io) allows users to create semantic fingerprints of any piece of text, in any language.
As examples, fingerprints of product descriptions in English can be compared to LinkedIn profiles in German, documents in Spanish compared to reading preferences of French readers, multi-language twitter messages filtered by their content and job profiles related to CVs.
The company has raised over $3m to date.
