Changing the Way We
See the World.
The 1980s saw the emergence of business intelligence software: Programs that could turn mountains of data into actionable information. Analyses that used to take hours of human labor could suddenly be done in seconds. In the 2000s, there was a parallel development in the growth of visual intelligence—tools to assess the visual world and extract actionable information from it.
In 2014, Radu B. Rusu, Stefan J.J. Holzer, Stephen D. Miller, and Pantelis Kalogiros, who knew each other as computer vision and artificial intelligence researchers, decided that progress in VI was held back by a reliance on 2D data, such as photographs and videos. They felt the development of 3D file formats, along with software that, like the human eye, assessed the world in three dimensions, would have a transformative effect on visual understanding.
That year they founded Fyusion. Together, they developed and patented a new file format called a .fyuse, which allows people to capture stunning 3D images using common smartphones, followed by the patented AI-Based Lightfield Information Suite [ALIS], a scalable AI platform which analyzes 3D images in real time.
FYUSION’S TEAM PATENTED NUMEROUS NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND BUILT ALIS, THE AI-BASED LIGHT FIELD INFORMATION SUITE.
Fyusion technology was first introduced through consumer social media apps, attracting over 100 million users. Over time, the company shifted to enterprise applications, with a focus on automotive.
In 2020, Fyusion was acquired by one of its biggest clients, Cox Automotive. Based in San Francisco, Fyusion employs some of the world’s top researchers and developers in light field imaging and AI, who help customers view and analyze millions of 3D automotive images every year, and remain on the cutting edge of VI research and development.
