Duke professor’s artificial intelligence startup receives $10 million investment

A new startup led by a Duke professor recently received $10 million to develop practical applications in the growing field of machine learning.
Lawrence Carin, vice provost for research and professor of electrical and computer engineering, received the funding from investment firm Carrick Capital Partners in September. Unicorn ML—the company’s temporary name—will be dedicated to developing practical applications of machine learning, a subfield of artificial intelligence.
“I was not dreaming of starting a company,” Carin said. “But the world has told me I have to have a company because the work that we’re doing is increasingly valued by people who see practical applications for it.”
Carin said machine learning involves teaching machines to learn relationships and recognize patterns in data. Having worked on machine learning at Duke for 15 years, he noted that companies have asked his research team to use the technology for specific applications.
