Plai Labs is revolutionizing social platforms by combining AI and web3 technologies.
Founded by Chris DeWolfe and Aber Whitcomb, the visionary minds behind MySpace and Jam City, Plai Labs aims to create the next generation of social experiences powered by cutting-edge AI capabilities.
The company recently secured an impressive $33 million seed funding round led by a16z, propelling them into the spotlight of the AI and tech community.
This case study delves into Plai Labs' journey and our collaboration with a team of top-tier machine learning experts, and the development of their revolutionary PlaiDay App.
Plai Labs set out with an ambitious vision to redefine social platforms using AI and web3 technologies.
With the recent seed funding of $33 million led by a16z, Plai Labs received validation and support for its mission. The backing from prominent investors recognized the potential of their innovative approach and positioned them as a rising star in the tech industry.
Before securing their seed funding, Plai Labs recognized the need for experienced AI expertise to fulfill their vision. They sought out external assistance from Eventum to build a team of 6 top-tier machine learning researchers, engineers, and product managers.
Eventum led the Plai Labs effort by providing advisory, consulting, and recruiting services to help Plai Labs lay the foundation for their AI-powered social platform. Most of the AI team we placed ended up joining Plai Labs as full time employees after the engagement.
The collaboration between Plai Labs and our team of AI experts resulted in the development of a Stable Diffusion fine tuning and inference system.
This revolutionary system allowed the creation of fine-tuned models that exhibited enhanced performance, accuracy, and stability. The stable diffusion technique proved to be a game-changer, providing Plai Labs with a powerful tool to fine-tune AI models for specific social interactions.
The fine-tuned models developed using the Stable Diffusion system were successfully deployed in production for tens of thousands of users.
Plai Labs' commitment to delivering high-quality AI-driven experiences was evident in the seamless integration of these models into their platform. Users could now enjoy AI-enhanced interactions and personalized experiences that were unprecedented in the realm of social media.
Impressed with the expertise and dedication of Eventum’s AI specialists, Plai Labs made the strategic decision to hire 4 of the experts we placed on their project to go full-time.
This move not only strengthened Plai Labs' in-house AI capabilities but also fostered a culture of innovation and collaboration within the company.
Plai Labs' journey in the world of AI-driven social platforms showcases the power of visionary leadership, strategic collaborations, and technology.
With the support of a16z's seed funding, Plai Labs solidified its position as an industry leader in AI and web3 technologies. By enlisting the expertise of a team of top-tier machine learning researchers, engineers, and product managers sourced by Eventum, Plai Labs successfully developed the Stable Diffusion fine tuning and inference system, empowering their AI models to deliver exceptional social experiences.
The launch of the PlaiDay App was a testament to Plai Labs' commitment to innovation and user-centric design.
With AI-powered avatars and interactive features, the app represented a paradigm shift in social interactions, setting a new standard for social platforms. By hiring 4 of the AI experts full-time, Plai Labs demonstrated its dedication to nurturing talent and building a formidable in-house AI team.
