Gamalon, Inc., a Cambridge, MA-based machine intelligence startup company, raised $4.45m in seed funding.
Backers included Adam D’Angelo, Andy Bechtolsheim, Steve Blank, Ivan Chong, Georges Harik, Felicis Ventures, Boston Seed Capital, Matt Sutton, and Rivas Capital.
Led by Ben Vigoda, Gamalon develops a new approach to artificial intelligence/machine learning called Bayesian Program Synthesis (BPS), which is being commercialized in Gamalon Structure and Gamalon Match.
Gamalon Structure converts streams of text paragraphs found in databases or documents, into clean, structured data rows ready for use in the enterprise. Gamalon Match can then deduplicate/link these data rows.
The two services are now available to select customers as API’s integrated with the Amazon, Microsoft, and Google Cloud platforms.
The company has received approximately $7.2m in research and developments contracts from DARPA with another $500k from other government agencies.
