Leveraging human-assisted multilingual data collection, Venga AI will power natural language processing AI and machine learning.
Global leader in translation and localization Venga Global announced this week the launch of Venga AI to meet growing data transformation and machine learning needs. Expanding data annotation, collection, and validation for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) services, the company looks to improve localization approaches, especially for languages other than English.
“We started offering data services in 2016 focused around natural language processing and data translation,” says Venga chief sales and marketing officer Antoine Rey. “We have learned, adapted, and developed technology with great success to bring quality clean data to top AI and data companies. We are excited to now publicly offer our expanded roster of services including data annotation and validation for text, image, video, and audio.”
Working in translation, localization, and creative services in over 150 languages, Venga partners with clients to “streamline global communication.” With expertise in natural language processing (NLP), the company builds custom programs for enterprise clients to provide human-assisted clean data collection, annotation, and validation for ML. These programs are supported by a production team, innovative tools and technology, a specialized supply chain, and an ISO-certified quality assurance team.
The announcement of the AI program notes the growing need for clean data to feed into machine learning algorithms, especially in sectors producing medical diagnostics, autonomous vehicles, and voice search. With roots already in the translation industry, Venga has pivoted to providing data services in recent years, leveraging local human networks to create accurate data sets.
Venga chief operating officer Chris Phillips credited the company’s “ability to ramp up from zero to thousands of trained resources in very short time periods” as “key to our success. We achieve this through stringent vetting, testing, and training of quality resources and optimize our technology stack project by project to create efficient and controlled NLP data collection.”
Venga Global earned recognition last year by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Supplier Diversity Initiative, gaining certification as an LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE).
