Despite a number of Artificial Intelligence (A) I’m here. ) Market initiatives, many of which lack a key component—-People But New York-based startup B12 is on a mission to change that with today’s launch and announcement of oversubscribed $12. 4M Series A round led by General Catalyst Partners, Breyer Capital, Founder Collective, SV Angel and the founders and executives of successful companies such as Akamai, Stripe, Upwork, OpenAI, Locu, Dropbox and more.
The first B12 product uses human-assisted A I’m here. Building and designing websites in a completely new way Through smart automation applications in areas such as algorithmic design and the right combination of highly qualified creative experts—art directors, designers and more—B12 is capable of streamlining the entire web design process, enabling customers to benefit from high-touch experience and self-optimizing, smart websites at unprecedented speeds and prices.
The B12 was founded by Nitesh Banta, a former VC at General Catalyst Partners, and Adam Marcus, a MIT Computer Science Ph. D. D. And a founding member of the Locu team, acquired by GoDaddy in 2013.
‘Human-Assisted I’m here. It’s not about pitting people against machines It’s about pairing people and machines to create a new, hyper-productive and more satisfying work model. There is no doubt in our minds that A, if properly harnessed, I’m here. Can power a brighter future for human work,” said Nitesh Banta, co-founder and CEO of B12. ‘B12 represents a shift in the category of software We’re using A I’m here. Managing the process and performing rote labor so that people spend their time doing what they do best—creative and analytical work. ”
The engine behind the human-assisted A B12 I’m here. Model is the Orchestra, which was born out of years of machine-mediated work led by B12 team members from Stanford, Berkeley, and MIT. B12 Open sourced Orchestra as a platform to dynamically assemble teams of highly qualified experts and machines. Orchestra automates typical project management tasks, such as assigning work on the basis of complexity and expertise, as well as pairing up apprentices with experienced experts through mentoring. By creating greater efficiencies in the workflow, B12 is in a position to generate more intelligent products and services for a much smaller amount of time.
‘Recent advances in A’ I’m here. It’s been incredibly exciting, but it’s only once you bring people into the picture that you face important issues such as fulfilling work environments and algorithmic bias. With the Orchestra, we’re adding a human layer to A I’m here. , allowing expert teams to focus on what they do best as they master their craft, leaving machines to automate the nagging repetition of mundane tasks, such as staffing, process checks and quality assurance,” said Adam Marcus, co-founder and CTO of B12.
‘We are witnessing an explosion of A’ I’m here. Capacity across a wide range of applications, but this is the potential of human-assisted A. I’m here. Models that are particularly interesting in terms of market disruption,” said Larry Bohn, Managing Director, General Catalyst Partners. ‘B12 already offers capabilities far beyond what is possible with today’s DIY software platforms. We have the privilege of supporting Nitesh and his team as they continue to develop their impressive human-assisted A I’m here. Work Approach ”
‘I am confident that artificial intelligence and machine-assisted learning will revolutionize a number of industries – from healthcare to media – over the next decade,’ said Jim Breyer, founder and CEO of Breyer Capital. ‘B12 is at the forefront of leading this revolution at the intersection of human-assisted artificial intelligence and design with the Orchestra Platform. The company’s incredibly capable and knowledgeable team is addressing fundamental questions about the role of human creativity in a machine-dominated world, and in the process of creating products that will have a profound and positive impact on how work will ultimately be organized in the future. ”
‘Most paid crowdsourcing today is limited to isolated workers-doing many small tasks or one large job-through platforms that minimize collaboration and reduce the complexity of what can be achieved. Our research at the Stanford Human-Computer Interaction Group has shown that computing can lead to far more complex outcomes by dynamically convening and collaborating teams of experts. We’ve seen that these ‘flash teams’ make it possible to complete complex projects like translating napkin sketches into working software in as little as a day,” said Michael Bernstein, B12 Advisor and Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University. ‘B12’s approach is indicative of a growing shift to complex, interdependent work on an Internet scale. ”
