Intel Capital Joins $7.6M Series A Round for Amenity Analytics, Features Natural Language Processing / AI Startup at 2017 CEO Showcase
Natural Language Processing AI Platform Delivers Key Insights and Signals to Fortune 100 Customers and Major Hedge Funds
Palo Alto, CA — New York-based Amenity Analytics announced today that Intel Capital has joined its list of Series A investors and that the company was featured at the Intel Capital 2017 CEO Showcase as one of Intel Capital’s new startup investments. Amenity’s $7.6 million Series A round, first announced in August, was headlined by investments from State of Mind Ventures in addition to Intel Capital. That funding has been used to accelerate product development and to scale sales and marketing.
Amenity Analytics’ unique artificial intelligence system was designed by world renowned machine intelligence scientists, and it has quickly become a top competitor to IBM’s Watson for its ability to unlock insights from vast amounts of text. The system uses highly-accurate natural language processing which requires minimal coding or special information technology support — a significant hidden cost in other AI approaches. Clients have used Amenity’s platform to identify and extract data from regulatory filings, conference call transcripts, news, social media, research reports and more.
“Amenity Analytics is rewriting the rulebook on analytics and democratizing world class Natural Language Processing with its self-correcting AI platform,” said Amir Faintuch, Senior Vice president of Platform Engineering Group at Intel. “Intel is committed to advancing artificial intelligence for business and society by driving breakthrough performance and democratizing access.”
