Primer

Primer is a company developing AI to generate written intelligence reports.

Primer – also known as Primer.ai – is a company developing artificial intelligence (AI) to generate collected information into written reports. Primer was established by Sean Gourley in 2015. The company aims to help companies understand large datasets in multiple languages through the use of AI. Primer is based in San Francisco, California. 



Product & service

Primer’s AI is comprised of six engines – structure, ensemble, event, context, difference, and story – each functioning as the building blocks to generating a comprehensive report. The engines work together to: extract and classify data, construct sentences based on classified data, cross-reference generated information with relevant sources, differentiate between factual and biased sources, as well as analyze reports generated in several languages to decrease possible misinformation due to linguistic differences. Primer’s products are intended for use by corporations and governments.



Funding

Since its founding year, Primer has managed to accumulate a total capital of $54.7 million through five funding rounds – with its most recent being a Series B held in November 2018. This round raised $40 million in funding. Several investors who have previously financed the company were Mubadala Investment Company, Section 32, In-Q-Tel, and DCVC Opportunity.
