Infinity AI, a Los Altos, CA-based startup that generates automated synthetic training data, raised $5M in Seed funding.
The round was led by Matrix with participation from founders and operators from companies like Snorkel AI, Tesla, and Google.
The company intends to use the funds to bring its novel generative tools, which complement of its existing self-serve API, to market.
Co-founded by Lina Colucci, Sidney Primas, Andrew Weitz, and Daniel Hensley, Infinity provides a platform that allows engineers to upload a single real-world video and turn that into hundreds of similar and perfectly labeled synthetic videos. The company uses a combination of physics-based simulations and generative techniques to do this. For example, its self-serve API allows engineers to generate hundreds of videos that meet desired statistical distributions of camera location, lighting conditions, avatar appearances, and more. Its generative tools, currently in beta, bring those capabilities to the next level. They include a Stable Diffusion-based inpainting tool that massively augments scenes and another generative tool that adds infinite clothing textures to avatars.
As part of today’s announcement, Infinity AI is launching the Infinity Marketplace, a large open-source marketplace for synthetic datasets.
Infinity will release these tools publicly in 2023. The company currently works with over a dozen customers across fitness and smart facilities, including Tempo Fitness, Voxel Safety, SwRI, as well as a Fortune 50 company.
