Machine learning observability startup Aporia today emerged from stealth with $5 million in venture capital funding. The company says the proceeds will support the unveiling of its platform for AI models, which enables companies to monitor AI running in cloud environments. Businesses are investing upwards of $50 billion annually on AI adoption, a recent report from the MIT Sloan School of Management and Boston Consulting Group found. But a lack of ability to detect issues in models as they enter production could be undermining investments. “AI needs guardrails,” Aporia CEO Liran Hason told VentureBeat via email.
