The provision of this additional capital is a powerful endorsement of SeMI Technologies' leadership in the field of vector databases – a new type of database that is pioneering a new age of AI-powered database technologies – and the value it brings. While previous databases only stored raw data, Weaviate stores data processed by machine learning models, allowing users to better index and search their data. This investment will enable SeMI to grow its team, its user community and the number of its partners as well as its use cases; in addition, the company will be able to create and optimize new ML models and modules.
