Our mission is to enable every company to harness the power of AI
AI development is constrained by the cumbersome process of making unstructured data readable by machines.
Our team is working tirelessly to make AI practical by building applications that support the rapid annotation, management, and evaluation of training data.
Encord was started by former quants, physicists and computer scientists. We experienced firsthand how the lack of tools to prepare quality training data was impeding the progress of building practical computer vision applications. AI felt to us like what the early days of computing or the internet must have felt like, where the potential of the technology was clear, but the tools and processes surrounding it left much to be desired.
From first starting the company, we believed there must be a better way to making AI practical. We have devised a unique and effective methodology for automating and streamlining the tasks related to preparing and managing quality training data, in effect solving the training data problem.
Team Encord is composed of a team with a deep technical foundation and a breadth of operating experience. Our people include senior executives from some of the largest technology companies on the planet, PhDs, and world-class alumni from Google, Bloomberg, Meta (Facebook), Tractable, DRW, J.P. Morgan, and more.
We are backed by some of the foremost leaders in the space including CRV, Y Combinator Continuity, the Harvard Management Company, top industry executives, and other leading Bay Area investors.
