Training Data

How we provide the key ingredient for machine learning

Machines need training data to understand the world. They need annotated examples to understand that a collection of pixels is a pedestrian or that a sound file is actually a person asking for directions. Without that data, algorithms simply don’t work.

The Figure Eight platform transforms unstructured data from the real world – text, images, audio, video – into high-quality large scale structured training datasets at enterprise scale. We’ve helped train, test, and tune machine learning algorithms for everything from search relevance and sentiment analysis to object detection and conversational agents. And we can help you too. Our platform powers:

Computer Vision

From simple image labeling to pixel-level semantic segmentation, the Figure Eight platform tests, trains, and tunes some of the most ambitious vision projects in the world.
