Auto-Labeling Service Launch
Feb. 25, 2019—Linker Networks Inc. announced the launch of their service for AI based auto-labeling with continuous learning for the autonomous driving industry. Linker's auto-labeling technology integrated with Microsoft Azure cloud services delivers a seamless and scalable solution to pre-process datasets used for machine learning in vertically integrated industries like autonomous driving, manufacturing, public safety and medical imaging.
The service will be generally available by June 2019.
Linker develops AI models with continuous learning to improve auto-labeling model accuracy and scalability. By integrating Microsoft Azure Machine Learning service, Linker can improve productivity and reduce costs with autoscaling compute, tune hyperparameters faster and deploy customer-owned auto-labeling AI models tailored to specific requirements efficiently.
"Auto-labeling dataset processing technology plays an essential part in delivering managed AI services for enterprise and mobile carriers. We at Linker are excited to have the privilege to work with Microsoft on breakthrough technologies required to deliver intelligent cloud and intelligent edge solutions," Paul Shieh, founder and chief executive officer of Linker Networks said.
Autonomous driving platforms generate hundreds of millions of images and videos to be labeled with the highest levels of accuracy. Reducing labor cost and time-to-label is critical for these platforms' competitive market advantage.
"We are pleased to see Linker Networks using Artificial Intelligence to boost the productivity of our customers who need to label millions of images for the development of their autonomous driving technology," Jurgen Willis, director of product management said. This reduces both the cost and time of development and enables customers to accelerate their go to market timeline. By leveraging Azure Machine Learning service, Linker's data scientists are able to focus on developing the AI and let Azure take care of scaling their AI Training jobs."
At Mobile World Congress 2019, Linker announced the integration of its auto-labeling with continuous learning for autonomous driving with Azure services. This technology will be available and showcased at 5A61.
