Kore.ai Extends Series C Funding to $73.5M With NVIDIA


Kore.ai, an Orlando, Fla.-based conversational AI software company, extended its Series C funding round to $73.5m with participation from NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA).

In conjunction with the investment (of approx. $3.5m), Kore.ai and NVIDIA will collaborate on accelerating innovation in the deployment of conversational AI-based platforms and solutions for enterprises. The company will integrate NVIDIA software including Riva, a GPU-accelerated SDK for building speech AI applications that delivers real-time performance and provides flexibility and customization for next-generation solutions. In this strategic relationship, while Kore.ai brings its innovation leadership in natural language processing technologies, NVIDIA will bring its innovation in speech AI, which includes speech-to-text (automatic speech recognition or ASR), NLP parsing and text-to-speech (TTS).
