Protecting service members and civilians with artificially intelligent systems

Protecting service members and civilians with artificially intelligent systems

We empower robots to go where people and robots cannot go today - to gather critical intelligence that makes battlefields safer for service members and innocent civilians. We do cool stuff in the areas of deep learning, online learning, life-long learning, perception, state estimation, planning, controls, and hardware design.

Los Angeles-based 'deep tech' investment firm Riot Ventures is raising a $75M fund

  • TechCrunch
  • 3 months ago
  • Riot Ventures, the Los Angeles-based, early-stage and deep technology investment firm is going out to market to raise a $75 million second fund to finance the development of startups in LA and beyond.
  • The firm has largely flown under the radar, but it has been investing in startups applying innovations in automation, artificial intelligence, computer vision, computational biology, material sciences and robotics to industrial products and processes for the past two years.
  • Its first fund was a modest $10 million vehicle that the firm’s co-founders, Stephen Marcus and Will Coffield, raised to test the thesis their fledgling fund was exploring.
  • Chiefly, they thought that robotics and machine learning were going to transform everything from aerospace to industrial manufacturing and retail, and they saw Los Angeles as a unique location from which to deploy capital.
