FIT supports Largo AI Cinema Revolution with CHF 500K

— Largo, a spinoff of the Image and Visual Representation Lab at EPFL, is about to start a small revolution in the world of cinema. Thanks to its artificial intelligence software, the company provides directors, authors, producers and distributors with powerful information aimed at optimizing the impact of movies, and hence their profitability. A method already used by industry leaders Amazon and Netflix, but previously inaccessible to any others. Largo wants to democratize this, and the CHF 500’000 Tech Growth loan from the Foundation for Technological Innovation (FIT) will certainly be a help.
