No comments

Zorroa Corp., a Berkeley, CA-based search and analysis platform able to automatically extract intelligence from visual assets and apply insights to data-driven business processes, closed a $7M funding round.

The round was led by Gradient Ventures, Google’s AI-focused, early-stage venture fund, with participation from a number of strategic partners.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its Zorroa Visual Intelligence (ZVI) platform, accelerate ongoing feature and usability enhancements, and invest further in employee growth.

Led by Dan Wexler, CEO, Zorroa provides a platform that automatically analyzes and organizes a company’s large collection of visual assets — digital documents, images, and video — extracting insights and metadata contained in these assets and providing actionable business intelligence.

Launched in April of last year, Zorroa Visual Intelligence includes an intuitive user interface and a visual-processing pipeline that automatically organizes massive collections of images, videos, and documents using advanced machine learning and vision algorithms. ZVI adapts to the specific needs of enterprise clients and their different asset-analysis requirements, such as automatic document categorization, facial recognition, natural language processing, and other solutions required in different market verticals.

The company’s solutions are used by Oil & Gas, Media & Entertainment, and Mortgage & Finance.
