What We Do at Anno

By 2025, the world will generate over 460 exabytes of data per day! Cameras will record 50 billion hours of daily video, while an additional 30 billion IoT devices will collect data from other sensor types. The dawn of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Era will unlock value from this data in use cases spanning massive markets including: supply chain, retail, marketing, national security, and law enforcement.

Founded in 2019, Anno.Ai builds AI-first applications designed to seamlessly enable powerful new end user capabilities. Driven to serve our customers mission and business needs, Anno.Ai’s applications are built to leverage machine learning (ML) and advanced analytics behind the scenes, delivering the valuable insights our customers need in a slick, easy to use interface. The result is AI that creates unbelievable and sustainable value for our customers: "this is science fiction made real." 

Anno's team consists of researchers, former intelligence officers, military veterans, law enforcement, repeat startup founders, video game creators, hardware designers, and software engineers. Annomals are currently based in nine US states and three countries. The result is a hive of exciting innovation that has generated novel technologies and broken new ground in the field of AI. 

While the human brain devotes 40% of its resources to vision, AI hasn't even begun to tap the potential of video and imagery. We experienced rapid growth in 2021 with a $15M Series A, 40+ team members, and nearly 3X revenue growth, Anno is surging forward into 2022 with broad customer acquisition and additional key hires.
