    SEATTLE, WA – (May 23, 2017) – DefinedCrowd Corp., a startup that allows companies to collect, enrich and train data for artificial intelligence (AI) applications, was selected to participated on TechCrunch Startup Battlefield NY. The enterprise revealed on stage the Multimodal Workflow, a new feature of the platform.

    TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield is one of the most important and competitive event for tech startups. This year’s acceptance rate was less than 3% and the top companies selected pitched their business during TechCrunch Disrupt NY to a specialized jury, and a vast live audience, while the event was livestreamed to all the world.

    “This is truly an honor,” states Dr. Braga, CEO of DefinedCrowd. “It’s great to be among the few selected to pitch their companies on stage. TechCrunch has always been a reference to us and it’s really exciting for us to be part of this.” The video of the presentation is available on TechCrunch’s Youtube Channel.

    Dr. Braga revealed the new feature of DefinedCrowd’s platform on stage, the Multimodal Workflow. This template will serve clients with specific need of synchronized data collections from different inputs. With spontaneous scenarios or scripted prompts clients can now collect speech, video and even biometrics data all synchronized and ready to be used. Beside demographic configuration (Language and Proficiency, Gender, Age and Country), the clients can set up the collection environment to theirs needs, for example, selecting from home, living-room, office or In-car environments and optimize the noise conditions and recording distance. They’re able to choose the output quality and format of video and audio as well as combine different physiological signals, as Heart Beat, Respiratory Rate or EDA and other sensors as GPS and Accelerometer. All the other settings are optional and configurable, so clients have access to a complex but flexible workflow, easy to use and configured to their needs.

    “This feature allows us to meet the market requests, since there is an increasing number of AI companies needing synchronized data to train their models. This new workflow enables the creation of data needed to build a service that will monitor our vital signs and recommend a calming playlist when we’re stressed, for instance,” explains Dr. Braga. “It’s really exciting for us to release the Multimodal workflow at Startup Battlefield, which will give us a huge exposure,” she adds.
    TechCrunch Disrupt NY, which Startup Battlefield is part of, took place in New York from May 15th to 17th.
