AI platform InsightFinder announced new customers, leadership, and funding to meet growing demand for its AIOps technology

Every organization now relies on technology to remain competitive. Downtime is more expensive than ever and the volume and variety of machine data generated as logs, metrics, and traces means the old way of managing availability and performance is no longer an option.

InsightFinder, founded by Dr. Helen Gu, a system machine learning expert, helps companies like Dell, Credit Suisse, and China Mobile to detect system anomalies without thresholds, predicting severe incidents hours before they happen, and automatically pinpointing root causes. Customers report four to six hours of downtime reduction per incident and tens of thousands of dollars in cost savings monthly.

To support increased market demand, the company today announced a two million dollar investment from leading venture capital group Fellows.Fund, alongside the founder of a $100B+ software company, Silicon Valley Future Capital, Eastlink Capital, Brightway Future Capital and more than a dozen executives at Facebook, Uber, Pinterest, Amazon, and Airbnb. According to Alex Ren, Fellows.Fund Managing Director, “InsightFinder’s groundbreaking approach was vetted by the experts in the field, and the Fellows’ network and connections are poised to foster the company’s success.”

The company also announced it recently closed a deal with NTT DATA, the Japanese multinational information technology service company headquartered in Tokyo. NTT DATA will use technology from InsightFinder to help its customers reduce downtime for critical systems. Additionally, InsightFinder extended its existing partnership with Apprendis, makers of the Inq-ITS e-learning platform.

InsightFinder is also expanding its leadership team to include new Chief Revenue Officer, John Whittington. John has over 25 years of enterprise software sales experience. He co-founded BlueStripe Software and grew the business to a successful exit to Microsoft. According to John, “I’ve helped introduce monitoring technology to enterprise customers for nearly three decades and have never seen a stronger product than InsightFinder or a market more poised for disruption.”

DeepMotion introduces Markerless Face Tracking

DeepMotion introduces Markerless Face Tracking

The team at DeepMotion has introduced markerless Face Tracking. The AI-powered motion capture solution is now more complete with the ability to capture full-body motion now with facial expressions – all from a single video.

Adding face capture to Animate 3D gives users more control over expressing their vision by quickly and easily generating 3D face animations in minutes. No special hardware is needed allowing any video captured on any device to be used to generate 3D face animations.

The new face tracking feature is the latest in a continuous and aggressive release schedule that brings new features every few weeks to the service. Some of the other recent features include half-body tracking as well as various foot locking modes that enable users to capture motions like swimming and acrobatics “They’ve been killing it with the updates” says Virtual YouTuber Fruitpex in their recent coverage of top motion capture solutions.

The new face tracking AI captures facial features including blinking, expressive mouth motions, eyebrows and head positions with markerless tracking, no dots necessary. To complement this new feature, they recently launched half-body tracking and tight headshots which further enables tracking of the irises and higher fidelity features of the face. Users can also stick with full-body tracking that will still provide general expressions of character’s faces despite it being further away.

They recommend trying the new face motion capture with their Custom Characters feature to get a sense of what it can look like on a real character. Users can customize their own avatars with the built-in Wolf 3D metaverse avatar creator Ready Player Me, seen recently in other applications like VR Chat. Users can also upload their own unique character directly to the service, however will need to make sure it is set up with the standard ARKit blendshapes for it to work correctly. Alternatively, users can always select the Default character option that will generate the animation on a default character which one can then import into the 3D modeling or animation software of their choice to retarget onto their own character.

All users now have access to this feature, available in the Animation Settings when creating a new animation. The animation download will include the full-body motion data plus facial BlendShape weights based on ARKit Blendshapes. You can check out their FAQ to learn more about how to use Animate 3D Face Tracking for your projects.
