CrowdFlower Named a Gartner “Cool Vendor” in Information Innovation and Governance

Human-in-the-Loop platform provides training data essential for burgeoning AI market

SAN FRANCISCO, July 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — CrowdFlower Inc., the essential human-in-the-loop platform for data science and machine learning teams, announced today it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Information Innovation and Governance report by Gartner Inc.

CrowdFlower’s Human-in-the-Loop AI platform makes AI work in the real world by continuously training, testing, and teaching machine learning algorithms. As AI systems increasingly enter the mainstream, their usefulness is often defined by the quality of the training data used. While a machine can process complex mathematical equations or structured data in milliseconds, training data teaches a machine how to process more abstract data like flagging inappropriate content or distinguishing between objects in images.

“We are pleased to be recognized as a Cool Vendor in Information Innovation and Governance,” said Robin Bordoli, CEO of CrowdFlower. “AI has unlimited potential to change how companies work, but to realize that potential companies need a strategy for how they will manage the data that makes AI possible. For AI to work, you need to start with high quality, large scale customized data sets from which machines can learn about the real world. The more you train machine learning models, the better they will perform. CrowdFlower is focused on helping companies harness unstructured data to make AI work for their business.”
