CommonGround, an artificial intelligence company, has raised $25 million to expand its metaverse and virtual meeting services.
CommonGround’s offers remote and hybrid companies the ability to integrate 3D avatars, coined ‘TrueSelf Scan’ avatars, in an effort to create realistic and immersive virtual work environments. Through its technology, CommonGround is able to replicate real-life renderings of workers, their specific movements and non-verbal communication.
“What everyone learned during the pandemic was that online meetings are necessary, but they fall short compared to face-to-face meetings. Today’s virtual meeting solutions leave us feeling disconnected and rarely valued, understood, or heard,” said Amir Bassan-Eskenazi, CEO and co-founder of CommonGround.
“CommonGround is creating a new way to meet online where you can sit across a table, look into people’s eyes, see, and be seen. We believe, using hyper-realistic avatars as part of an immersive experience, we can make online interactions even better than face-to-face meetings.”
