A health-tech platform, Redbrick AI, that harnesses artificial intelligence has raised $4.6 million in seed funding led by Sequoia India and its startup accelerator in Southeast Asia, Surge. Y Combinator and angel investors also took part in the round.
The company aims to facilitate solutions for building medical imaging AI. It was founded in 2021 by University of Michigan alumni Derek Lukacs and Shivam Sharma. Its SaaS platform provides web annotation tools for 3D/2D data to provide experts with access to specialized tooling right from their browsers.
“With the growth of AI in clinical settings, researchers need excellent tools to create high-quality models and datasets at scale. Our customers oversee this growth, pioneering everything from the automated detection of cancers and surgical robots. The new funds will be indispensable to the growth of our engineering team in India and to diversify our suite of products,” said Sharma, the company’s CEO.
RedBrick AI’s tools are built to address challenges that are unique to medical data annotation, such as quality control, machine learning integration, and the complexity of existing annotation tools.
The company has joined a growing list of health-tech startups that have received significant funding recently, including diabetes care startup Beato and D2C health-tech startup Good Health Company.
