Who We Are
We have developed the world’s first AI-powered AR navigation platform for drivers, using our ultra-efficient Spatial-AI: road understanding deep learning AI and 3D localization that runs at the edge, in real time. We are a group of dedicated professionals formed out of Harvard and the Harvard Innovation Labs in 2017, bringing expertise in deep learning, computer vision, software optimization, and UX design. We are backed by multiple tier-1 mega VCs and Y Combinator, and we have just recently raised our Series A funding round that was led by State Farm Ventures. Now is the perfect time to join our core team and revolutionize how billions of people perceive and navigate the world!
