Information Week for Spare5
February 19, 2016
In a competition, the sponsoring company provides data, although third-party data may be used as well. When teaming up with a crowdsourcing option, such as Spare5, organizations can get access to the kind of data that AI and machine learning models require to mimic human reasoning.
“Deep Learning models become more complex over time so they can do more. But you need more data to train those models, and the data has to be good quality data,” said Spare5 cofounder and CEO Matt Bencke. “We’re improving the search experience for companies like Getty images, training models for companies like IBM and Sentient, and cleaning up huge directories.”
