SoftBank Funding For Next-Generation Edge AI Platform
Adapdix has announced that it has received funding from SoftBank’s Opportunity Fund, pushing the total investment amount secured by Adapdix up to $10m. The new funds will be used to build the next generation Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform for the edge, enabling real-time predictive analytics and maintenance for enterprises.
Chad Harris, an investor from SoftBank’s Opportunity Fund, said: “We are excited to support Adapdix in its AI innovations and to participate in its development of new solutions for the edge – we believe the result will be a real game changer. The SB Opportunity Fund is investing at this early stage because we recognize the differentiation of Adapdix’ technologies and believe that it has the potential to become the leader in the fast-growing edge AI market.”
Anthony Hill, Founder and CEO at Adapdix, added: “This investment is validation of our vision for our next-generation AI platform. With the SB Opportunity Fund joining the team of investors, we now have the ability to scale up the business and develop the required ecosystem of partners and suppliers.”
Adapdix’ EdgeOps is a software-only solution that combines advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) analytics with a distributed, edge-based architecture. By enabling control where the AI data is, at the edge, Adapdix helps to increase model accuracy, reduce network cost and congestion, and cut latency.
As the first predictive analytics solution based on an industrial-grade data mesh technology, Adapdix enables ultra-low-latency, predictive maintenance and control. Adapdix’ EdgeOps will initially focus on serving manufacturing companies in the semiconductor, electronics and automotive sectors, with more industries planned for the future.
