AI and automation have become essential components in the developer's toolkit, transforming the way we build software and offering the best hope yet of meeting the unrelenting demand for scale, speed, and reliability that has come to characterize the cloud-native era. Whether as engineers or investors, when attempting to identify the essential tools amid a sea of contenders, context is everything. This is doubly true for generating test code - a realization that helped to guide the formation of 8VC’s newest portfolio company, SapientAI.
Spartan Radar’s momentum continues to build following their Series B (led by 8VC and joined by strategics Microsoft and Wipro), with rapidly expanding partnerships and the addition of radar engineering authority Dr. Matt Markel as President. In this post, we explore how Spartan’s ambitious yet pragmatic approach delivers immediate safety upgrades to today’s automotive industry, while scaling to an autonomous future.
