Beyond Limits, an industrial and enterprise-grade AI technology company built for the most demanding sectors, including energy, utilities and healthcare, today announced a Series C funding round with $113 million closed and another approximately $20 million committed. This round is led by Group 42, an AI and cloud computing company, and bp ventures, an existing two-time investor and customer of the company.
Today we are seeing unprecedented, world-wide demand for systems that go beyond the limitations of conventional AI. Our cognitive software has the ability to understand situations and place problems in real-world contexts as well as to learn over time.
– AJ Abdallat, CEO and Founder of Beyond Limits
Beyond Limits’ Cognitive AI applies human-like reasoning to solve problems, much like how humans form conclusions using inference and logic. This unique approach combines encoded human knowledge with available data sources, allowing systems to adapt and continue to operate in situations where data may be in short supply or missing altogether. As a result, Beyond Limits’ customers are able to elevate operational insights, improve operating conditions, enhance performance at every level, and ultimately increase profits as a result.
bp ventures was established to identify and invest in high-potential, game-changing technology companies that can help us reimagine our global energy system. With this additional investment, we believe that Beyond Limits’ Cognitive AI could help create a more intelligent and sustainable future for the energy sector and indeed across industry as a whole.
– Morag Watson, Senior Vice President, Digital Science and Engineering at bp
Martin Edelman, General Counsel, Group 42, said, “We believe Beyond Limits’ unique AI will bring new levels of efficiency to high-impact sectors and help drive future economic growth.”
The $133M funding will be used to expand Beyond Limits’ business both in the U.S. and abroad, including the launch of Beyond Limits Asia, with regional headquarters in Singapore and operations in Hong Kong, Taipei and Tokyo and further expansion across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Beyond Limits Asia will drive investments for joint ventures and strategic partnerships in Asia to expand Beyond Limits’ AI in new verticals including financial services, led by the Hong Kong office, and advanced manufacturing, led the Taiwan office. The funding will also accelerate Beyond Limits’ Cognitive AI application development and SaaS product portfolio and fuel the Beyond Labs R&D program.
