We believe that one of the most powerful manifestations of Artificial Intelligence occurs when an organization is given the ability to see their world through the lens of an AI. Our spatial models enable our clients to remotely observe, analyze and learn from their physical environments in ways that have never been possible before.
Our SpatialSense platform combines deep learning AI with sensor networks inside of a spatial model to create near-live, 4D simulations of real-world scenes. It's now possible for organizations to remotely sense all of their physical environments from a single interface.
Visual and sensory data about the world is proliferating, but the ability of machines to monitor and learn from that data has not kept pace. We address this pressing disparity by radically enhancing an organization’s ability to perceive, replay, remix, and reprogram their worlds at scale.
The Worlds’ SpatialSense simulation engine produces “digital twins” of live physical spaces. What is captured in 2D with cameras and other sensors is re-expressed inside of a 4D model where everything can be measured in space and time. These hyper-responsive simulations provide clients access to active physical analytics via a user interface that streamlines critical information about real-time events.
Clients think of SpatialSense as a visual home base for their entire IoT sensor network. While cameras are the primary sensor in our platform, our API has the capability to seamlessly integrate virtually any other type of sensor data, such as: temperature, moisture, sound, or smell — inside of a single interface.
Worlds, the Spatial AI company headquartered in Dallas, Texas, is completely re-inventing how organizations see and understand their worlds. Through live, AI-powered models, the company’s clients can remotely see, learn and analyze their worlds in ways that were never possible before. Worlds’ partners, investors and clients consist of some of the most progressive and largest companies on the planet including, Align Capital, Chevron Technology Ventures, PIVA, Capital Factory and GPG Ventures who have enabled Worlds to build breakthrough products for Energy, the DoD and other markets seeking higher levels of automation.
After building and selling two companies based on machine learning and AI, founders Chris Rohde and Dave Copps founded Worlds in 2018. After selling Brainspace in 2017, they knew they wanted to stay involved in AI and were intrigued with the challenge of building machines that could see and sense the world. They were joined in the beginning by co-founder Ross Bates, who had previously built and sold the startup Key Ring, also based in Dallas.
As the company pivoted toward a spatial interface, they connected with Head of Spatial Computing, Jason Fox, who was then a Senior Software Engineer in Microsoft’s Spatial Computing group. With guidance from their leadership team, Worlds has assembled an extremely talented and experienced team with skillsets spanning from machine learning, deep learning, spatial computing to full stack development, UX/UI, blockchain and digital identity.
Dave is known internationally as a futurist, technologist and visionary on the role that emerging technologies will play in transforming markets and the world. Dave has founded, launched and sold two technology companies that have placed machine learning and artificial intelligence in hundreds of companies around the world. In 2017 Dave was recognized as Emerging Company CEO of the Year in Texas while serving as CEO of Brainspace Corporation which was acquired by Cyxtera in 2017. Dave received his BA from the University of North Texas. He is an active member of many impactful communities, including: The Aspen Institute's Round table on AI, Peter Diamandis' Abundance360 community, Xprize Visioneer, US Governments's Council for Competitiveness focused on Disruptive Technologies and a frequent speaker at MIT's EmTech conferences as well as universities and technology incubators all over the world.
An avid AI and machine learning enthusiast and expert, Chris is committed to leveraging these technologies for the betterment of business everywhere. Prior to Worlds, Chris was Co-Founder and VP of Business Development of Brainspace, where he brought the power of machine learning, data analysis and visualization to Fortune 500 enterprises, global consulting firms, legal service providers and government agencies. Chris earned his BBA from Texas Tech University.
Ross comes to Worlds with over 20 years of experience building data driven products and services. His passion is in building solutions that help people integrate, explore, and understand large & diverse data sets. Ross has excellent startup & product development experience after having built and sold the mobile shopping company Key Ring. Prior to venturing into the startup world Ross worked as a consultant developing data management solutions for Fortune 500 companies in industries that included Banking, Oil & Gas, and Wireless. Ross earned his degree from the McCombs School of Business at UT Austin.
Jason joins us from Microsoft where he was a Senior Spatial Computing Engineer in their Commercial Software Engineering organization. In his work at MS, he worked with enterprises to build robust spatial computing systems with technologies such as HoloLens, mobile AR (iOS/Android) and accompanying cloud services. Jason has designed and built 3D visualization systems, built video game systems, non-destructive testing systems, and spent time as a technical evangelist.

“A real-time 3D (or spatial) map of the world will be the single most important software infrastructure in computing.”– Peter Diamandis
One of the most powerful manifestations of artificial intelligence occurs when a person can physically see their world through the lens of AI. The Worlds SpatialSense Platform brings real-time sensory data from a physical environment into a single 4D view that is easy to comprehend.
Our SpatialSense platform gives organizations the ability to remotely observe and sense all of their physical environments from one place. There are currently four modules in the SpatialSense platform; WorldTrainer, WorldBuilder, WorldNavigator, and WorldAI.
The Worlds PROTECT™ kiosk is the first, rapid, standoff COVID-19 screening solution in the world. Worlds PROTECT™ is entirely non-invasive and requires no saliva, blood or deep nasal samples to produce a result. A person simply blows into the inlet on the front of the device and the chemical sensors are activated immediately. The signal is quickly analyzed using machine learning algorithms and a result returns in under a minute. Worlds PROTECT™ kiosks are connected devices that, together, form an infectious disease prevention network that will produce the data needed to halt community spread and provide early warning of any future virus.
