Scale AI is a San Francisco-based technology company that specializes in creating high-quality training data for the development of AI applications. Founded in 2016, Scale originally found its niche labeling 3D LiDAR data for autonomous vehicle applications. Since then, Scale has rapidly expanded its labeling products, launching 2D Image and Document annotation, and partnering with some of the industry’s leading players such as Lyft, OpenAI, Nuro, and General Motors.
Scale was founded by Alexandr Wang, an MIT college dropout, national programming competitor and former engineering lead at Quora. After being a teenage tech lead at Quora, Alex founded Scale, becoming the youngest founder funded by Accel as a teenager, was recognized as Forbes 30 under 30, and is a frequent speaker at conferences including Auto AI and API Mixtape.
