Minneapolis software startup gets $2.3M in funding, signs Ryan Cos. as client

A Minneapolis company that created software designed to help construction companies save money and boost efficiency by monitoring projects from afar is quickly gaining some big name users of its product.

Founded in 2016, SiteKick’s software captures images from smart cameras and environmental readings from sensors at the construction sites. The information is uploaded into a cloud infrastructure, where machine learning looks for objects of interest in the images, like people. The virtual presence system then produces real-time and historical data on construction progress, safety and productivity at the sites.

SiteKick, which emerged from stealth mode a little over a year ago, has about 20 clients, ranging from local general contractors to multibillion-dollar Minneapolis commercial real estate

It was a windfall for online proctoring companies, but thrust the pitfalls of the practice into the spotlight.

Being watched by a faceless stranger or artificial intelligence provokes anxiety or worse, according to some students and teachers. Educators and privacy advocates raised concerns about the software’s efficacy, invasiveness and potential to discriminate against some disabled candidates.

Online proctoring companies are now updating their user experiences, partly to
