Virtualitics Raises $4.4M in Series A Funding

Virtualitics, a Pasadena, CA-based VR/AR Data visualization and analytics platform developer, raised $4.4M in Series A funding.

The round was led by The Venture Reality Fund.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its team and accelerate the deployment of new functionality within its platform.

Led by Michael Amori, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Virtualitics is a developer of big data visualization and analytics tools for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) environments. The platform, which combines VR/AR data visualization, artificial intelligence, natural language and machine learning to identify multidimensional relationships and actionable knowledge hidden in complex datasets, enables users to examine up to 10 dimensions of data in a shared virtual office. Virtualitics is currently in private beta, with participants including Accenture and Efficient Power Conversion.

Beyond Amori, the company’s founding team includes:
– Professor George Djorgovski, the founding director of Caltech’s Center for Data-Driven Discovery. Djorgovski also serves as the Department Chair for Astronomy at Caltech and was one of the founders of the Virtual Observatory framework, which is now a global data grid of astronomy, as well as of the emerging field of Astroinformatics.
– Dr. Ciro Donalek, a computational scientist at Caltech with more than 15 years of experience in machine learning.
– Dr. Scott Davidoff, manager of the Human Interfaces Group at NASA’s JPL, where he oversees design and development of the user interfaces that command all JPL spacecraft in addition to leading the team that created Virtual Mars.
