PathAI, a startup that employs machine learning techniques to improve diagnostic accuracy, today announced that it’s raised $60 million in series B funding led by growth equity firm General Atlantic, with General Catalyst participating. It brings its total venture capital raised to about $75 million, following an $11 million series A financing round, which CEO and cofounder Dr. Andy Beck said will be used to enhance PathAI’s existing offerings, drive improvement of its platform, and fuel research and development into new tools and devices. “Our goal has been clear since day one – a relentless drive to ensure patients get the right diagnosis and the most effective treatment. We’re looking forward to working with our partners to scale this effective approach across disease areas and around the world,” Beck said. “The global network and deep expertise in technology and life sciences brought by General Atlantic, alongside the continued support of existing investors like General Catalyst, can only enhance our ability to effect change toward this major, impactful objective.” Boston, Massachusetts-based PathAI, which was founded in 2015, supplies AI-powered research tools and services for digitizing and analyzing pathology images. With its solutions suite, along with its partnerships with leading diagnostic laboratories and pharmaceutical companies, it aims to support clinicians in bringing faster, more accurate, and more predictive diagnostics to patients. And it’s working to make safer and more affordable the sub-typing of diseases like breast cancer, which is the most common cancer in women worldwide with over 250,000 new cases diagnosed every year in the U.S. PathAI has a staff of 60 (up from 25 in the past year), and recently secured certifications in quality management and information systems. Active collaborators include such organizations as Philips, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and past investors include Refactor Capital, Eight Partners, Pillar, Danhua Capital, and KdT Ventures. “PathAI’s work could radically improve the accuracy and reproducibility of disease diagnosis and support the development of new medicines to treat those diseases,” said General Catalyst cofounder David Fialkow. “The positive — and global — impact of getting this right cannot be overstated. We think this is the team that has all the potential to bring these game-changing solutions to market.” PathAI is vying for a slice of the anticipated $35 billion health care cloud computing market against startups like Deep Lens, which recently raised $14 million for its AI precision medicine software suite, and Inspirata and Proscia, both of which develop products that automate pathology workflows. But it benefits from Beck’s high profile — in 2015, he and colleagues at Harvard Medical School and MIT won a global challenge on the detection of metastatic lesions in lymph nodes with a performance that rivals human error rates consistently. “Digitizing images in pathology has the potential to transform the field by unlocking new opportunities in image recognition,” said Philips digital pathology solutions general manager Russ Granzow. “With computational pathology and the application of artificial intelligence there is an opportunity to increase efficiencies, enable greater accuracy and precision, and allow pathologists to see things and access insights not previously available.”

It used the same old tricks: First, it coerced companies to transfer their technologies, as in the case with high-speed rail. Many Western corporations are willing to provide technology in exchange for access to the Chinese market, training their […]

Just a few short months after San Francisco startup AISense brought Otter, a voice recording app that taps AI to transcribe speech, to the education market with Otter for Education, it’s rolling out a new product that squarely targets enterprise. The company today announced Otter for Teams, a subscription solution designed to accommodate the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses and teams within larger corporations. Its launch follows on the heels of a major milestone for AISense, which was cofounded in 2016 by Sam Liang and Yun Fu: Over six million audio- and video-based meetings, lectures, and discussion have been recorded, transcribed, and edited to date using its technology. “During the past year, Otter has seen significant adoption among people who want to focus more on the substance of their conversations than on taking notes,” Liang, who serves as CEO, said. “Otter for Teams maintains the core features our users love, and pairs these with rich, new functionality designed to improve collaboration and productivity.” That “new functionality” chiefly refers to account management, provisioning, and reporting, plus support for single sign-on. Otter for Team users can share live recordings with other members as they’re being transcribed, and collaboratively highlight key bits of conversations and tag speaker identities. A number of organizations have been piloting Otter for Teams in the lead-up to its debut, including Vice’s Virtue Worldwide creative agency, auditing firm Moss Adams, design and production agency BRC Imagination Arts, and property tech firm Amne. That’s in addition to AISense’s existing enterprise customers like Bridgewater Associates, Tulane University, the University of California-Los Angeles, and Harvard University. Otter for Teams starts at $12.50 per month, which is only slightly pricier than its premium and student tiers — those cost $10 per month and $5 per month, respectively. AISense will continue to offer the free Otter plan, it says, which includes 600 minutes of transcription per month and unlimited cloud storage. Otter’s core technology, which was developed by a team that hails from Google, Yahoo, Facebook, MIT, Stanford, Duke, and Cambridge, is optimized for conversations. It can distinguish among speakers using a technique called diarization, generating a unique print for each person’s voice. Transcriptions are processed in the cloud and made available from the web or in Otter’s mobile app for iOS and Android devices, where they can be searched, copied and pasted, scrolled through, edited, and shared. A word cloud at the top of each recording tracks the most-used terms. Otter competes with Microsoft’s Microsoft 365, which can host live events with AI-powered features such as facial recognition of attendees and autonomous speech-to-text conversion, as well as comparable meeting transcription tools from Cisco and startups Voicera, Verbit, Trint, and Scribie. But it seeks to differentiate its service with competitive pricing. It’s also licensing its tech to third parties like video conferencing company Zoom, which enables conversations recorded by Zoom users to automatically upload to Otter. AISense has raised $13 million to date from Horizons Ventures, Bridgewater Associates, i-Hatch Ventures, MetaLab, Jay Markley, and others, plus seed investors Draper Associations, Slow Ventures, Danhua Capital, and 500 Startups.
