Kogniz, a San Francisco, CA-based machine learning and artificial intelligence security product company, raised $4M in seed funding.
The round was led by The Entrepreneurs’ Fund, Tom Chavez (Krux acquired by Salesforce.com), Auren Hoffman (Liveramp acquired by Acxiom), and other industry investors.
The funding will be used to expand the company’s engineering and data science team, and to grow product distribution.
Led by Daniel Putterman, Kogniz provides a suite of products that use computer vision and AI to enhance security, safety and efficiency in any physical environment.
The company’s cameras, already live in twenty implementations across the United States, process video in real-time to recognize people, objects and activities using next-generation facial and object recognition technologies.
Kogniz also has development offices in Montreal, Quebec.
