Singapore-based Taiger, which specialises in applied artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, has successfully closed its S$8 million ($5.87 million) Series A round, led by Tembusu ICT Fund I and state-backed investor SGInnovate.
Taiger, a startup specialising in applied artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, today disclosed a US$5.8 million funding deal to push Singapore’s AI capabilities forward in line with the country’s “Smart Nation” initiative. Its technology covers human-machine natural language interaction, semantic search, and information extraction.
One of the key steps towards achieving this goal is fostering corporate involvement, and investment, in the startup community.
