About Activeloop

Today delivering valuable insights from unstructured data is difficult. It takes on average an entire month to take a model from research to production. Data scientists and engineers spend a lot of time on managing data. An overwhelming number of tools in use leads to lack of uniformity and repeatability. There is no industry standard for storing unstructured datasets. This leads to heavily manual systems that require constant data wrangling.

Technology

We are building Data 2.0 https://github.com/activeloopai/Hub

The landscape of computation resources across different special hardware and cloud providers is becoming increasingly fragmented.

We're building a platform that unifies and abstracts away infrastructure for easier and highly efficient machine learning and deep learning.
