Retrocausal recognized for achievements in Human-Centric Video Analytics

NEW YORK and SEATTLE, July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CB Insights today announced it has named Retrocausal, a growing leader in AI-driven quality assurance systems for manufacturing professionals, to its first-annual AM 50 ranking. The AM 50 ranking showcases the 50 most promising private, advanced manufacturing companies worldwide.

“This initial cohort of the AM 50 includes a wide range of companies at different stages of maturity, product development, and funding. Collectively, they are working on everything from factory analytics and artificial intelligence to the industrial internet of things cybersecurity,” said Brian Lee, SVP of CB Insights’ Intelligence Unit. “We’re excited to watch the companies on this year’s list continue to grow and further create operational efficiencies that will have a meaningful impact across industries.”

“Our camera-based software platform understands manual assembly processes,” said Zeeshan Zia, CEO of Retrocausal. “Retrocausal’s Pathfinder platform helps operators avoid mistakes, allows industrial and quality engineers to improve processes, and enables managers to track production. Our solution has won patents and technology industry awards, and today’s recognition is significant. We are proud to be recognized by CB Insights, the leading business analytics platform, for our impact on the manufacturing industry.”

Utilizing the CB Insights platform, the research team picked 50 private market vendors from over 6,000 companies, including applicants and nominees. They were chosen based on factors including R&D activity, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, business relationships, investor profile, news sentiment analysis, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The research team also reviewed hundreds of Analyst Briefings submitted by applicants.

Due to the growth in demand for Retrocausal’s in-process quality control and process improvement software, the company has opened a new office in Dallas, Texas, to be closer to its manufacturing customers in the Midwest and Mexico. In addition, earlier this year, the company announced it had closed a financing round of $3.4M and unveiled joint projects with Honda Innovations and Siemens Digital Industries Co.
