About Us

Cleanlab is focused on data-centric AI (DCAI), providing algorithms/interfaces to help companies (across all industries) improve the quality of their datasets and diagnose/fix various issues in them. We develop next-generation DCAI algorithms that we release publicly as open-source software (github.com/cleanlab/cleanlab) as well as enterprise SaaS products with interfaces for data scientists/engineers to effectively improve their data quality and produce more reliable ML models. While many companies can help store/manage data or develop ML models, there exist few solutions today to improve the quality of existing data, which is the core asset of the modern enterprise.
