Last week, the product of more than a half-decade of research by Brown University and MIT came to light. Einblick, which has secured $6 million in seed funding from investors, is offering a visual data computing platform that fundamentally changes how users interact with data by rapidly allowing them to understand the past, predict the future, and make the best data-driven decisions for their business.
Tim Kraska (Associate Professor at MIT and Adjunct Associate Professor at Brown, formerly Assistant Professor at Brown) is the organization's Co-Founder and CEO and Professor Eli Upfal of Brown CS is a Co-Founder. Its other Co-Founders (Benedetto Burratti, Philipp Eichmann, Zeyuan Shang, and Emanuel Zgraggen) are all Brown CS alums or former students. More than a dozen Brown CS faculty members, students, and alums contributed to the research behind Einblick, which was published in various top-tier systems, machine-learning, and human-computer interaction conferences and journals.
To learn more about Einblick, read Wednesday's press release or a recent blog post ("The third wave of analytics and why Einblick is leading the way") by Tim.
