Retrocausal, a Seattle, WA-based leader in AI-driven quality assurance systems for manufacturing professionals, secured $3.4m in funding.
The round was led by Glasswing Ventures and Differential Ventures, with participation from new major investors, Argon Ventures, Ascend Ventures Vietnam, and Hypertherm Ventures.
The company will use the funding to further build out its team and extend its global growth.
Led by Dr. Zeeshan Ziam co-founder, and CEO, Retrocausal provides the Pathfinder platform, which supports discrete manufacturers’ measurable improvements in quality, efficiency, and first-time yield by decreasing manual assembly errors.
The platform can be deployed in days by anyone on a manufacturing operations team, enabling organizations to see a near-immediate return on investment. Its automation engine builds a production-ready deep learning model in one day or less and with minimal training data. This accurate model gives manufacturers a real-time analysis of the manufacturing floor, historical data, and a wealth of build process analytics while protecting operator privacy with options selected during deployment.
Pathfinder combines purpose-built software with any GPU-enabled Windows computer and off-the-shelf webcam, providing the latest advancements in computer vision to increase the quality of products coming off the manufacturing floor. In addition, operator privacy is enabled by the narrow camera field of view required for many assembly operations, as well as software image blurring and encryption options.
