Tapastreet Limited, a Dublin, Ireland-based photo and video discovery platform for mobile devices, raised €500k in funding.
The company intends to use the funds to increase adoption of its solution.
Founded in 2012 by ex-Intel engineer Joe Mitchell (CEO) and ex-Googler Dave Johnson, Tapastreet is a photo and video discovery platform that enables users to see and share what is currently happening at any location worldwide by accessing real-time media uploaded to popular social networks.
The company, which unveiled its applications at TechCrunch Disrupt 2013 in San Francisco earlier this month, has also developed a joint research project with Trinity College Dublin and The Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA) under the EU’s Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways, Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), to develop advanced image synthesis techniques and location-based artificial intelligence machine learning algorithms and integrate them into Tapastreet’s core product offering.
The app is available for free on Android, iPhone and iPad.
