How Voxel’s AI Technology Could Put A Stop To Accidents At Work

Jaime E. Love

Better safe than sorry. San Francisco-based Voxel will today announce a $15 million Series A round, with investors flocking to a company promising that new technology can dramatically reduce workplace accidents. The business applies artificial intelligence tools to live video feeds from its customers in order to prevent accidents before they happen and to identify behaviours that might lead to future health and safety difficulties.

Founded little more than a year ago, Voxel works with a growing number of industrial and manufacturing businesses, as well as retailers. Customers provide access to the feeds from the video cameras monitoring their workplaces; Voxel’s AI model then analyses what it is seeing and sounds the alert when it spots an issue.

“It is all about helping people to be proactive about safety on their sites,” says Alex Senemar, CEO and co-founder of the business. Having previously worked in the healthcare sector, founding Sherbit,

“Are you gonna hire a bunch of useless salespeople like they have at Oracle?”

This was the first of many memorable interactions I had with Eliot Horowitz. Eliot was the founder and CTO of MongoDB, and in late 2010, I was interviewing to come aboard as president.

My topic today isn’t product-led growth, but the relationship between a

State Rep. William “Smitty” Pignatelli, Ashley Stolba, undersecretary of housing and economic development, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and Gov. Charlie Baker get a tour of the new internet infrastructure in Becket by Jamie Cincotta, utility foreman of Whip City Fiber. Broadband initiatives have been critical to getting the rural Berkshires connected. Now a federal plan will reduce the costs for residents who qualify. 

Most of Berkshire County is wired for high-speed internet, but not every household can afford it.

Now, a $65 billion federal initiative that is part of President Joe Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is designed to close that gap here and across the U.S. using tax dollars and the help of large internet providers.

Residents can find out whether they qualify based on income or participation in various government assistance programs, or if they live on Tribal lands.

How to find the best VPN for your needs?

To find the best VPN service for your personal or business needs, you’ll need to compare brands, prices, features, and more. But first, you need to understand how a VPN accomplishes its primary mission: Keeping you safe and protecting your privacy online.

Fundamentally, most VPNs (virtual private networks) provide two services: They encrypt your data between two points and they hide the IP address (from which a general location can be derived) where you’re located. For those traveling or out and about, the first function is critical because most Wi-Fi available publicly is unencrypted — so anyone on the network can see what you were sending. 

But VPNs also serve to hide your IP address, replacing the address logged on servers with one in a completely different location — even a different country. For those worrying about stalking or other threats,
