Aporia left stealth and announced the launch of its customizable monitoring platform for Machine Learning models with full support for private and public clouds.

The company also revealed $5M in seed funding from Vertex Ventures and TLV Partners and is already being used by multi-billion dollar companies.

Aporia enables data scientists to quickly and easily build their own monitors, so they can keep track of their Machine Learning models' performance, ensure data integrity and provide responsible AI.

"AI needs guardrails", says Liran Hason, CEO of Aporia. "Companies need to have confidence in their Machine Learning models, and the only way to get there is by robust monitoring to ensure they're doing what they're supposed to do."

With Aporia, data scientists can create bespoke monitors for their Machine Learning models in just a couple of clicks, and set alerts of different severity to be sent to email or sources like Slack.

Aporia's monitors are extremely flexible, allowing data science teams to watch the right things for their own unique models and business cases.

Aporia can be installed with a few lines of code and monitors asynchronously, handling workloads of billions of daily predictions with no impact on latency. The user interface is full-featured, clean and simple, making it easy to create, maintain and modify monitors. Once Aporia's platform reveals an issue, data scientists can often quickly track down the cause of the problem and decide how to address it, whether via a logic change, a bug fix or retraining the ML model when necessary.

Concerns regarding data security and regulations make many companies apprehensive about adopting public cloud monitoring tools. Alongside its public cloud deployment, Aporia offers an innovative "managed on-prem" solution, giving peace of mind to large companies and corporations with high data privacy and security requirements.

Liran Hason, the founding CEO of Aporia, is a veteran of the IDF's elite 81 intelligence unit. He was one of the first employees of Adallom (acquired by Microsoft), where he led the ML production architecture, serving millions of users. Before starting Aporia, Hason was part of Vertex Ventures' investment team, and was involved in over 30 investments including Axonius, Spot.io and others.

"Companies are struggling to keep watch of their AI in the ways that matter for their specific Machine Learning model and use case," said Hason. "Aporia makes monitoring simple, fast and secure, bringing engineering and DevOps best-practices into the new field of MLOps and ensuring that data science teams can keep their models performing accurately and fairly."

Emanuel Timor, General Partner at Vertex Ventures says "AI adoption is soaring and requires a proper technological stack to handle the new challenges that come with it. Aporia is a vital part in the new MLOps stack, filling a critical gap in production readiness of AI."

Rona Segev, Founding Partner at TLV Partners: "Monitoring production workloads is a well-established software engineering practice, and it's past time for machine learning to be monitored at the same level. Aporia's team has strong production-engineering experience, which makes their solution stand out as simple, secure and robust."
