Xaitment Receives $1.6M In Funding For AI And Software Development

AI tool provider Xaitment announced that it has received 1.2 million euros (~$1.6 million) in funding to fuel the development of its xaitKnow and xaitThink toolsets, which are set to debut in 2012.
AI tool provider Xaitment announced that it has received 1.2 million euros (~$1.6 million) in funding to fuel the development of its xaitKnow and xaitThink toolsets, which are set to debut sometime in 2012. This funding comes from two of the company's main investors, Triangle and KfW, and will help the company develop a pair of tools that enable more advanced AI behaviors. The xaitKnow toolkit, for instance, will provide AI characters with basic knowledge about their environment, while xaitThink gives these characters the ability to react to its surroundings. Together, these tools promise to help AI react and adapt realistically in games and simulations. "We know there is a good portion of the PC and console market, as well as the civil and military simulation market, that is currently writing advanced AI behaviors from scratch, and could really benefit from tools that ease the process of creating smarter digital characters. That is the reason for this new investment, the results of which we look forward to displaying publicly in 2012," said xaitment CEO Mike Walsh. Xaitment noted that while neither of its new tools are ready to be debuted to the public, the company plans to launch both products in the first half of 2012.
