Computer vision AI platform Chooch.ai announced it has raised a $20 million Series A round of funding. This funding round was led by Vickers Venture Partners with additional institutional funding from 212, Streamlined Ventures, Alumni Ventures Group, Waterman Ventures, and several others.

Chooch is known for replicating human visual tasks and processes using a complete computer vision deployment process across a wide variety of industries. And the proprietary technology has been deployed at scale for enterprise applications including geospatial, healthcare, security, media, industrial and retail. Clients include Fortune 500 companies and the US Government. This series A round will serve to build out the strategic engineering team, top data scientists, and the creation of a global sales force.

Unlike single-purpose computer vision systems, Chooch Al is able to rapidly ingest and process visual data from any spectrum, generating AI models in hours that can detect objects, actions, processes, coordinates, states, etc. And organizations then have the choice to deploy the Al models in the cloud or onto edge devices in minutes. The team at Chooch Al takes the client through the whole visual AI deployment process, providing critical services and solutions all on one platform.
