Our Story

In 2014, Radu B. Rusu, Stefan J.J. Holzer, Stephen D. Miller, and Pantelis Kalogiros — who knew each other as researchers in computer vision, artificial intelligence and robotics—decided that progress in visual understanding was being held back by a reliance on 2D data, such as photographs and videos, and that the development of 3D formats had the potential to transform the way we understand the world.

That year they founded Fyusion with the goal of building new, visually stunning 3D technologies that would enable them to solve complex visual problems with artificial intelligence. Together they developed and patented a new file format, called a .fyuse, which allows people to capture stunning 3D images from their smartphones, causing a social media sensation and drawing more than 100 million users through consumer mobile applications.

Since then, the Fyusion team has patented over 130 new technologies to realize its vision, and built the AI-based Light Field Information Suite (ALIS), which makes Fyusion technology accessible to enterprises.

Today, Fyusion is a trusted partner to global brands such as Cox Automotive, Itochu, Lotte, and others as they leverage ALIS to develop 3D solutions that are revolutionizing the way their companies do business—from 3D digital merchandising to automated damage detection. Based in San Francisco’s historic Potrero Hill, Fyusion employs some of the world’s top researchers and developers in light field imaging and AI, helping its customers view and analyze over a billion 3D images every year.
