Returning from CRN’s 10 Hottest AI Startups Of 2022 (So Far), AI Squared continues to impress with its low-code, drag-and-drop models for users to gain AI-generated insights from their web applications, skipping time-consuming development cycles.
The Washington, D.C.-based startup integrates machine learning models such as PyTorch, Keras and TensorFlow with commercial apps from Salesforce, SAP, Microsoft, Oracle and other vendors, according to AI Squared.
In June, AI Squared announced that it raised $6 million in a seed round of financing. NEA led the round, with participation from Ridgeline Partners. The money will go toward product development and hiring, according to the startup.
In an October interview with WJCT, CEO Benjamin Harvey said his company has a valuation of more than $50 million and that he hopes to raise at least $50 million in the Series A round and reach a $500 million valuation.
Before he founded AI Squared last year, Harvey worked at Maxar Technologies for more than a year, according to his LinkedIn. He left with the title of data science director.
He previously worked at Databricks for more than a year, according to his LinkedIn. He left in 2020 with the title of solutions architect and data scientist.
Harvey worked at the National Security Agency for about 10 years, according to his LinkedIn. He left in 2019 with the title of chief of operations for data science.
