DefinedCrowd Unveils Data Platform API at Web Summit 2017


The Seattle startup announced version 1.0 of their data platform public API for artificial intelligence and machine learning today, at the tech event taking place this week in Lisbon

Seattle – DefinedCrowd Corp., a startup that offers a platform to collect, enrich and structure data for artificial intelligence (AI) applications, announced the release of version 1.0 of their public API at Web Summit. Announced ahead of its general availability on November 8th, the product helps companies create new projects, upload tasks, and execute data collections and data processing campaigns in a more streamlined way, directly from their own data and Machine Learning infrastructure.

Led by its founder & CEO Dr. Daniela Braga, DefinedCrowd has a strong presence at this year’s Web Summit: A demo booth as part of the Beta program (on November 8th at Stand B 412 of the Big Data Exhibition Area) and pitching to compete among top 200 startups (on November 7th at 2 p.m. on stage PITCH 2).

“As a young company, Web Summit is an amazing opportunity to showcase DefinedCrowd,” says CBDO Aya Zook. “It is an honor to be competing with the top startups in the world and using the event as a launchpad to release our new API.”

The API, which is officially launching during DefinedCrowd’s Beta booth program, is responding to the increasing demand of the company’s growing list of clients to launch large-scale data processing activities on a regular basis. With this product, data scientists can meet their constant data feedback loop needs with much more control and more efficiency, thus allowing them to refresh their machine learning models much faster.

“The life of data scientists will become easier with this API,” says CEO and Founder Dr. Daniela Braga. “They will have the option to integrate their data platforms with DefinedCrowd, having complete control of their projects, working from their own platforms. This will give them direct access to high-quality large-scale data with very little overhead,” adds Dr. Braga.

In the public release, the number of data pipelines that can be accessed will increase compared to the currently available private beta version of the API. Coverage of data types will include speech and text data collections (in 46 languages) to transcription and annotation activities such as sentiment tagging, named entity tagging, as well as several other speech and natural language validation tasks. The release helps DefinedCrowd reinforce its position as the leading provider in high-quality data for artificial intelligence.
