“Our ever-growing spatial data library enables us, partners and third-party developers to deliver powerful property insights and intelligence to our customers,” said RJ Pittman, CEO of Matterport. “Every day, we see the innovative ways they use Matterport to transform the way buildings are designed, built, managed, promoted, insured and inhabited.”

The Matterport platform is powered by Cortex AI, its patented deep learning neural network. It analyzes 3D spatial data captured from Matterport’s flagship Pro2 camera and a wide variety of third party devices including Lidar cameras, 360 cameras, and mobile devices. Cortex consistently and accurately creates 3D digital twins of any space and handles complex tasks -- from 2D to 3D reconstruction, advanced image processing, automatic color correction, object and room labeling, and more. The AI is trained by Matterport’s expanding spatial data library that currently comprises more than 10 billion square feet of every type of building imaginable.

“Big data is helping organizations across the world enhance the customer experience, cost optimize, drastically improve operational efficiencies and enable more real-time actions,” said David Campbell, CEO, Tech Ascension Awards. “We’re very excited to recognize big data leaders like Matterport with innovative solutions that are helping organizations utilize rich, powerful data in unique and invaluable ways.”
