Neurala Launches Brain Builder Platform to Accelerate Creation of Custom Vision AI Solutions

Brain Builder platform streamlines creation, deployment, and analysis of custom vision AI solutions, making AI more accessible for organizations of any size

BOSTON – March 14, 2019 – Today, Neurala announced the launch of Brain Builder: an end-to-end SaaS platform to streamline the creation of custom vision AI solutions. By giving organizations an all-in-one tool for data tagging, training, deployment, and analysis, Brain Builder makes custom vision AI creation more efficient and accessible for AI beginners and experts alike.

“While investments in AI have increased exponentially in recent years, a staggering 91 percent of organizations still face significant barriers to adoption, including a lack of IT infrastructure and a shortage of AI experts,” said Dr. Massimiliano Versace, CEO and co-founder of Neurala. “These challenges are compounded by the fact that every company has their own unique data, use cases, workflows and problems they wish to solve, which demand customized – and resultantly complex – AI solutions.”

“Brain Builder is breaking down those barriers to entry,” Dr. Versace continued. “Now, anyone – AI expert or otherwise – can build a custom vision AI solution by using a single platform that guides the process from development to deployment. In turn, any organization with a vision AI problem – across verticals such as drones, robotics, smart devices, manufacturing and more –can reap the benefits of AI without breaking the bank or requiring a PhD.”

The Brain Builder platform represents the latest evolution of Neurala’s existing tools to streamline vision AI development. Last year, Neurala launched its Brain Builder data annotation tool, which enables fast and accurate creation of data for DNN training. Now, organizations can go well beyond data annotation to see through the full AI lifecycle. Users simply upload images to Brain Builder, leverage the platform’s annotation tool to tag data, and the platform will train as they tag. With the simple click of a button, users then deploy their brain either in the cloud or on the edge. The platform automatically creates an AI solution that’s custom-fit for businesses’ specific use cases and can evolve with the businesses’ changing needs.

While traditional approaches to deep learning make continuous learning impossible, Brain Builder includes Neurala’s patented Lifelong-DNN™ (L-DNN) technology to combat this issue. L-DNN allows AI to learn quickly, at the edge and iteratively over time. This further simplifies custom AI creation, as L-DNN significantly reduces the amount of data and training time required and enables ongoing improvement of AI even after it has been deployed.

Organizations that use Brain Builder see significant ROI, in the form of cost reductions of over 25 percent and time savings by as much as 90 percent, compared to the process when using traditional deep learning approaches or other tools.
