About Us
Encord is a fast-growing startup building an active learning platform for computer vision AI applications. Our mission is to enable companies to unlock the power of AI. We have raised $20M from top investors including CRV, Y Combinator Continuity, top industry executives, and other leading Bay Area investors.
Started by ex-computer scientists, physicists, and quants, we felt first hand how the lack of tools to prepare quality training data was impeding the progress of building practical AI. AI feels to us like what the early days of computing or the internet must have felt like, where the potential of the technology is clear, but the tools and processes surrounding it are terrible. We have devised a unique methodology for automating the tasks related to preparing quality training data, in effect turning the training data problem into a data science problem.
