Tell us about yourself?

My fascination for machine learning grew a few years back when I worked for an AI-based company in Toronto. Having no prior knowledge about the AI industry, I got intrigued to see how the ML industry was rapidly expanding and how it impacted the day-to-day tasks of humans in various major sectors by automating the process.

However, while working over there, I was able to figure out the biggest setback was the lack of the training data, needed to feed the machine learning model. When my company was looking for a scope to scale up its magnitude, I offered them a solution that could speed up the process of gathering a large set of data through a harness of effective communication-based pipelines.

Being in that company gave me access to ample opportunity to learn a lot about the AI industry and its data arrangement. This first-hand experience and practical knowledge about machine learning triggered me to found my own company that solely focuses on AI. I realized that this is the sector where data are constantly needed, and I am the better fit to outsource the team to find the quality training data to deal with a diverse range of clients from different countries.

Establishing the company on the AI wasn’t an easy experience considering that the field is still growing and emerging. But what my company has established already with the help of the most supportive team I could think of, I can’t thank them enough and look forward to working in unison in expanding our business to more countries and industries worldwide.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Go and live your dream. Don’t try to push yourself for others. If you think you want to become of something, don’t listen to anyone but you. Don’t try to get carried away by what others think or how your weakness can become an obstruction for you. I always have had a mind to becoming an entrepreneur from a very early stage. I wish I could rewind the time and prepare myself for entrepreneurship years earlier.

What problem does your business solve?

AI has shaped the lives of people from a variety of angles, often in a positive way. The future technology lies within the hands of AI that impacts a wide range of sectors from retail to automobile technology, sports, agriculture, security, etc. AI ensures that these fields of technology can grow with the enhancement of computer vision powered by AI. However, you need the top-grade training data to beef up the machine learning model to deploy its diversifying application over a wide range of fields. But acquiring these data is often complex since it involves a human intervention to provide the most distinctive solutions for the modern computer vision system.

We, Quantigo AI, harness the best experts in the data industry to feed the large volume of data – researched and annotated from the successful case studies to help the AI industry exhibits its excellency everywhere.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

As I stated earlier, my years of working for the AI industry has garnered me first-hand experience, which I could utilize to source a large volume of quality training data to overcome the challenges that can arise in the AI industry in terms of the workforce. Like any newbie who could have been quickly shattered with the immense challenges from the AI industry, sheer knowledge of this field triggered me to initiate this business without thinking twice.
