Scale AI provides a complete suite of tools for collecting, managing, and utilizing data for AI systems. In addition to providing data labeling services, they offer software for gathering, annotating, curating, and cleaning-up vision and natural language data, so that organizations can build and monitor machine learning models trained on that data.

Data is the lifeblood of building, training, testing, and fine-tuning AI. Alexandr Wang has been at the forefront of providing services around data for AI. He knows what data tools to build for organizations to get the most out of AI, which is why he should be on everyone’s radar. – QuHarrison Terry.
