Bifrost’s generative tools equip users to create 3D virtual worlds and synthetic images. These tools are being used to power AI teams to train their models for applications in \Robotics, Space, Defence, and Mobility. Beyond AI, Bifrost’s 3D environment generation capabilities are particularly useful in Gaming, Film, Simulation and a range of emerging industries.
Today, AI teams across the world struggle to find high-quality labeled training data at scale. This is a major hindrance in developing functional machine learning systems. Collecting such datasets from the physical world requires substantial infrastructure, large teams, millions of dollars, and takes years to complete. AI teams can now use Bifrost’s technology to craft diverse, customizable, and rare datasets using synthetic, computer-generated data, enabling model training with higher accuracy within minutes/weeks instead of months/years, at a fraction of the incumbent cost.
These virtual worlds are being used by world-class organizations such as NASA to land spacecrafts on Mars, nab pirates over the Atlantic, and power mission-critical AI systems across industries such as autonomous systems, geospatial analytics, industrial robotics, and national security.
Bifrost is backed by world class investors like Sequoia Capital, Wavemaker Partners, Lux Capital, Champion Hill Ventures, Techstars, Hustle Fund and Cap Vista.
