Latest Industry Insights from Draup Braindesk

  • Unavailability of AI Infrastructure – Companies wanted to integrate machine learning, but there were no standardized tools or infrastructure to solve this problem that Big Tech did for their in-house AI projects                             
  • Data Labelling and Tagging – Since its launch, Scale AI was initially focused on tagging images and videos for self-driving cars and started off with its idea of creating AI infrastructure for the self-driving and autonomous segment of the automotive industry
Differentiation Overview
  • Integrated Data Infrastructure – There aren’t many companies tackling the full scope of building a data foundation for the top AI-building companies. Scale AI is annotating the data, which is basically training AI with a very high-quality graph, called the ground truth data, as well as managing the data for the potential customers demanding it.
Scalability Roadmap
  • Product level Scalability – Scale AI from more than labeling data; it has moved to a suite of software-based services designed to help companies gather, annotate, clean up, and manage data while also building and monitoring their AI models. It has developed and expanded its portfolio with products such as Scale Nucleus and Scale Rapid.
  • Industry Level Scalability – The company cracked various industries right, from autonomous driving to Mapping, Robotics, AR/VR, Offline Retail, E-commerce, and Search and Natural language and Content Understanding, helping companies label and annotate their various types of raw data.
Sustainable Perspective
