Dublin-based AI startup Artomatix has raised €2.1 million in a seed round from Enterprise Ireland, Horizon 2020, and a number of angel investors.

Artomatix is developing 3D content tools using AI for games companies and film studios.

“We are convinced that the future of 3D content creation lies in Artificial Intelligence,” said founder and CTO Dr Eric Risser, whose background lies in machine learning, computer vision and computer graphics research.

“This funding will be devoted to hire engineers and researchers to help execute our product roadmap and to develop our technological competitive advantage further,” he said. “We believe this funding will go a long way towards helping us realize our vision to enable 3D artists create immersive worlds faster than ever.”

By 2022, the 3D market will be worth €282 billion, according to Markets & Markets. This, says Artomatix, is creating a growing demand for 3D content development tools. The company was founded in 2014 but launched its services late last year and now counts a number of Fortune 500 firms among its client base.
