Archangel Imaging joins prestigious Creative Destruction Lab program #BuildSomethingMassive
Updated: Dec 12, 2020
Archangel Imaging are proud to announce their acceptance into the Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) program based in Oxford. Joining CDL is a unique opportunity to connect with mentors from world-leading companies such as Google, IBM and LinkedIn to help build a truly disruptive and impactful platform for the future. Imaging joins the Artificial Intelligence (AI) stream, working with the brightest minds and technology leaders in the field to advance their Cerebella® real-time hybrid team coordination platform for complex, time-critical missions.
Archangel Imaging has an ambitious mission: to empower human and machine teams to be at the right place, at the right time, with the right information to enable rapid response and preventative action in time sensitive situations. From monitoring oil pipeline leaks to preventing the poaching of endangered species, these environments have a common constraint: they are in remote, off-grid locations, with little infrastructure. Archangel Imaging offers affordable and highly flexible plug-and-play solutions tailored to the end user’s needs without the need for existing infrastructure. Its smart devices run AI algorithms locally on the cameras, and can be integrated with smart sensors, UAVs or drones. Cerebella.ai brings these devices into one task-management system solution, designed to withstand low connectivity and low power consumption requirements.
Daniel Sola, Chairman of Archangel Imaging, believes that "we will inevitably see a need for smart machines to work alongside human staff. Cerebella provides an easy tool to coordinate these resources reliably in real-time, particularly in remote locations. By using the relative strengths of human and non-human team members, we can finally solve some persistent, global problems. "
Archangel Imaging won the BTinfinity Lab Augmented Intelligence Award in 2018 and the AIConics AI for Good Award in 2019.
