Aporia takes aim at ML observability, responsible AI and more
After launching its platform in 2021, and seeing good traction, Aporia today announced a $25 million series A funding round.
Aporia CEO and cofounder Liran Hason met with VentureBeat to discuss Aporia’s vision, its inner workings and its growth.
Hason, who founded Aporia in 2019, has a background in software engineering. After a five-year stint in the elite technological unit of the Israeli intelligence forces, he joined Adallom, a cloud security startup that was later acquired by Microsoft. Following that, he spent three years investing in early-stage companies, mostly in AI and cybersecurity, while working at Vertex Ventures.
Throughout his career, Hason saw the good and the not-so-good side of machine learning, and experienced first-hand the tantalizing process of bringing machine learning to production. This is what inspired him to start Aporia to help companies monitor their machine learning models.
