We work from R&D to production

We work at every stage of the Machine Learning product pipeline, from fundamental, on-premises R&D to lifecycle and deployment.

Our Specialties

We tackle the problems that SaaS cannot solve.
We leverage our software suite to build custom systems that work on premises and fit directly into your deployment architecture.
Computer Vision

From object detection to segmentation to image captioning, we build state-of-the-art solutions leveraging Deep Learning to push your products to the forefront and provide you with a competitive advantage. We have experience with real-time-processing as well as building systems to make images indexable and searchable.

Recommendation Systems

Supercharge your product with user personalization. With proven conversion rates from e-commerce to content recommendation, we help you match your users to an experience that will keep them engaged. Even if your application needs solely visual or content-driven recommendations, we can help you craft a stable backbone for recommending content.

Natural Language Processing

Whether your product requires autosummarization, sentiment analysis, classification, or entity extraction, we can supercharge your application with state-of-the-art NLP. From routing support tickets to automatic conversational agents, Vai Technologies provides solutions that can help you engage and support customers in new meaningful ways.

Custom Algorithms

We work across a variety of Machine Learning specialties. In particular we specialize in Computer Vision, NLP, and recommender systems. However, we have experience in everything from time series analysis to social network analysis, so if your product, idea, or goal does not fit in our specialties, reach out and we can build custom solutions.

How we work

Algorithm development and Machine Learning development in commercial settings is often very discrete with a large gap between R&D and production. We will work with your team to set up both continuous integration and delivery for in-house ML solutions, as well as continuous deployment, if appropriate.
Instead of rotating your ML product needs to fit into a pre-baked SaaS solution, we rotate our software and deployment architectures to fit your needs and develop on-premises tooling for you to manage, customize, and scale as needed. We continue to provide support as you grown into your solution.
