By Attaching Images To Data, Zegami Can Leverage Human Pattern Recognition To Its Fullest Extent
Zegami, an Oxford University spin-out, announces the release of the Zegami Cloud Beta platform. Zegami is providing a brand-new way to search and explore datasets with its innovative use of images, enabling new discoveries that were previously unattainable.
By taking the technology to the cloud, Zegami is looking to massively increase its reach by making it easy for anyone to upload and analyse their data. “To date we’ve seen our platform used in scientific research and industry. By making it available on the cloud, we’re now allowing everyone to put their data in Zegami and take advantage of our technology,” said Samuel Conway, CEO, Zegami.
By attaching images to data, Zegami can leverage human pattern recognition to its fullest extent. It provides a canvas that lets customers understand all their information at once while being able to quickly analyse, identify and zoom in on the most relevant detail.
“While we’ve seen our ability to collect and store data grow exponentially, the final step of communicating information to people has remained rudimentary. On the whole, we’re still stuck with looking at data in tables and charts or scrolling through pages of information. Zegami offers a game-changing paradigm in the way we communicate information to people and we’ve already offered unique value to customers in scientific research, sports, retail and HR,” said Roger Noble, CTO, Zegami.
The technology at the core of Zegami was first created to analyse the results of high-throughput microscopy at Oxford University. After spinning out as a separate company in 2016, it has attracted investors including Oxford Sciences Innovation and Parkwalk.
Zegami Limited was founded in February 2016 as a spinout company from Oxford university based around the Zegami Data discovery toolset. It was originally developed as a collaborative project between the Weatherall Institute at Oxford University UK and Coritsu Group from Adelaide in South Australia.
Significant potential was seen in the initially delivered solution and also the great team that had been created from both Organisations that had been working on it.
Now based in Oxford and headed up by Samuel Conway (CEO) Roger Noble (CTO) formerly of Coritsu Group and Stephen Taylor (CSO) of the Weatherall Institute, with a board headed up by Charles Pope and backed by investment funds such as OSI and Parkwalk. The challenge for the team now is to show the world just how amazingly powerful Zegami is and make it a commercial success.
