San Francisco-based artificial intelligence provider Sentient Technologies recently announced that it has raised US$103.5 million in Series C funding, bringing the total investment in Sentient to more than US$143 million.
Access Industries led the round with Tata Communications (Hong Kong) Limited - a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Tata Communications Limited, existing investors Horizons Ventures, and a group of private investors in the fields of finance, consumer, food and beverage, and real estate.
According to the company, Sentient will use the funds to further expand its distributed artificial intelligence products and services.
Antoine Blondeau, Chief Executive Officer, Sentient, added: "The new investment will allow us to continue to grow our team, further scale our partner infrastructure, and accelerate the commercialisation of our distributed artificial intelligence technologies. Further, the expansion of our investor team brings a wealth of experience to our organisation as we explore new vertical industries."
