About us:

Voted by Forbes as one of the top 25 machine learning startups of 2021. V7's mission is to enable any business to create and leverage vision AI and solve any visual task. We're a heavily UX-driven product and aim to change the way software is developed through the use of deep learning.

Most of the world's growth and sustainability depends on tasks involving visual understanding, from the detection of disease, to preserving natural habitats, to the manufacturing revolutions that pull communities out of poverty. We are a platform to develop customized AI combining automated image annotation, dataset management, and model training to create an almost magical end-to-end experience in bringing autonomous intelligence to life through learnable human actions.

We are a venture-backed team harnessing and curating the ML-ops of some of the world's most ambitious tech companies and AI startups. What sets us apart is our team's obsession with pushing our product to where AI will be three years from today. The product sells itself to the right user, but that can only be sustained for as long as every interaction within it is delightfully designed and implemented.
