In Brief

A survey by Kaltura reveals that 75% of staff admit to skimming through or multitasking during training videos.

Colossyan, led by CEO Dominik Mate Kovacs, utilizes generative AI to create engaging workplace learning videos by remixing footage of virtual avatars against various backgrounds.

Kovacs founded Colossyan in 2020 after leaving Defudger, driven by the growing corporate interest in AI.

While Colossyan's platform offers a free trial, some users find its avatars stiff and its text-to-speech engine robotic.

Despite some user dissatisfaction, Colossyan has attracted notable clients like Novartis, Porsche, and Vodafone, and recently secured $22 million in funding led by Lakestar to expand its team and develop new features.

Most people don’t fully watch training videos, often skimming through them or multitasking while they play. A survey by Kaltura, a video tech company, found that 75% of staff admitted to this.

Dominik Mate Kovacs, CEO of Colossyan, believes generative AI can make training videos more engaging. Colossyan uses AI to generate workplace learning videos by remixing and editing footage of virtual avatars against various backgrounds. Users can input scripts that are read aloud by Colossyan's text-to-speech engine, which translates them into over 70 languages.



Enterprises are leveraging AI in diverse areas such as IT automation, customer care and digital labor — highlighting the broad applicability and potential impact of AI technologies in streamlining operations and enhancing service delivery

Kovacs

Kovacs started Colossyan in 2020 after leaving Defudger, a deepfakes detection platform. He was inspired by the growing corporate interest in AI.

While Colossyan's platform offers a free trial, it wasn't entirely satisfying for some users, with stiff avatars and a robotic text-to-speech engine. However, the platform has attracted several big-name clients like Novartis, Porsche, and Vodafone.

Colossyan recently raised $22 million in a funding round led by Lakestar. The company plans to expand its team and develop new features like branching videos and knowledge checks to enhance its platform's capabilities.
