“Many companies continue to battle with moving their AI and ML jobs into production as an outcome of information labeling restrictions and a lack of real-time validation that can just be accomplished with human input into the system,” said Dataloop CEO Eran Shlomo. “With this investment, we are dedicated, in addition to our partners, to overcoming these roadblocks and providing next generation data management tools that will transform the AI market and meet the rising demand for innovation in global markets.”

The platform itself centers around the “human beings in the loop” design that matches the automatic systems, with the capability for people to train and remedy the model as needed. It integrates the hosted annotation platform with a Python SDK and REST API for designers, along with a serverless Functions-as-a-Service environment that works on top of a Kubernetes cluster for automating dataflows.
