Zegami, a visual data exploration tool and an Oxford University spin-out, has announced the release of its Zegami Cloud Beta platform. Zegami is providing a brand-new way to search and explore datasets with its innovative use of images, enabling new discoveries that were previously unattainable.

By attaching images to data, Zegami can leverage human pattern recognition to its fullest extent. It provides a canvas that lets customers understand all their information at once while being able to quickly analyze, identify and zoom in on the most relevant detail.

An example? Imagine a picture of a forest from above, full of life. As a visual data exploration tool, the Zegami technology would be able to make sense of all the data and give information on every single plant, tree, flower, animal, insect and weed in the area displayed on the picture.

By taking the technology to the cloud, Zegami is looking to massively increase its reach by making it easy for anyone to upload and analyze their data.

Scientific Research, Sports, Retail, HR

“While we’ve seen our ability to collect and store data grow exponentially, the final step of communicating information to people has remained rudimentary,” said Roger Noble, CTO of Zegami. “On the whole, we’re still stuck with looking at data in tables and charts or scrolling through pages of information. Zegami offers a game-changing paradigm in the way we communicate information to people and we’ve already offered unique value to customers in scientific research, sports, retail and HR.”

The technology at the core of Zegami was first created to analyze the results of high-throughput microscopy at Oxford University. After spinning out as a separate company in 2016, it has attracted investors including Oxford Sciences Innovation and Parkwalk.

Initially the cloud beta trial will be by invitation only. To find out more visit: www.zegami.com.
