Aerial & Satellite Imagery

We train models to understand the world from the sky

Aerial imagery has never been more prevalent or more valuable than it is today. We train, test, and tune the models that use those satellite images to understand the world.

Why Figure Eight?

A wide suite of computer vision tools

Whether you need bounding boxes, pixel labeling, or just general image categorization, Figure Eight can help. We have a proven computer vision solution that can work with whatever ontology of classes you need to make your models a success.

We train, test, and tune

We help build the annotated images that power the most accurate models in the space. We also test and tune these models by validating (or correcting) less confident outputs so they get better through the iterative process of active learning.

Machine learning expertise

Our machine learning team has decades of computer vision experience. They can help you with everything from prioritizing the right kinds of data, tuning your algorithms, or looking at your approach holistically and making the suggestions that will elevate your model’s success.

Trusted by today’s leading brands

We needed a way to scalably measure search results quality. We needed to look at the impact of algorithms in search results relevancy and Figure Eight provides a way to do that. Our search results have gotten measurably better and we’ve been able to increase revenue, so it's been a real winner in terms of user experience and income.

Machines don’t know music. Machines don’t feel the beat. Machines don’t feel happy. So we have to teach them. Teaching them involves two things: what do you put in, but also how do you grade your machines?
