Scale AI Funds $0.7M for WorkSafe AI, a $2.2M Project Led by OVA, Creators of StellarX

The project, in collaboration with ArcelorMittal and CDRIN, aims to enhance safety training in steel manufacturing using advanced AI technologies.

Montreal, QC, June 12, 2024. On Monday, it was announced at the Conference of Montreal that OVA, the creators of StellarX, have received $0.7M funding, Canada’s AI Supercluster, as part of a $2.2M total investment towards the WorkSafe AI project.

Led by OVA, a dynamic SME at the forefront of Spatial Computing and Artificial Intelligence technologies, the WorkSafe AI project is designed to enhance safety training in steel manufacturing operations using advanced AI technologies like Neural Radiance Fields (NeRF) and Large Language Models (LLM). This initiative aims to reduce injuries through predictive risk assessment and immersive training scenarios, setting a new standard in industrial safety.
