Hui Zhang and ECE alum Ion Stoica take Conviva to new heights

 

July 7, 2017

Nowadays, instead of turning on the TV, most people watch videos online or use phone applications like Netflix to stream their favorite television shows. As more consumers continue watching videos on the web or through phone-based apps, companies are trying to measure how those videos are being delivered and who is watching them. One such company called Conviva, founded by ECE Courtesy Professor Hui Zhang and ECE alum Ion Stoica, developed set-machine-learning-based algorithms to do just that. Conviva, a company currently valued at $300 million, recently raised $40 million from investors like Foundation Capital and Time Warner Investments to continue expanding its business platform.
