Product Owner

Job description

DefinedCrowd provides high quality training data to fuel AI applications and initiatives. Our fully customizable workflows in speech, NLP, and vision are designed to help our clients reach their business goals quickly, easily and with guaranteed results.

But, the power of artificial intelligence is anything but purely artificial. The ability to process and analyze millions of data points per second gives AI the ability to quickly present information to human workers in a digestible fashion. The combination of automation and machine learning gives human workers superpowers they have never possessed.

By working in collaboration, human powers and skills are amplified by augmented intelligence. This new collaborative intelligence will be capable of performing unimaginable superhuman feats. So, human roles aren’t disappearing. In fact, AI is creating new human career paths: Trainers, Explainers, and Sustainers.

While the autonomous car doesn’t require a driver, it does require an Explainer to translate between tech and business units, a Trainer to guide AI in its learning, and a Sustainer to ensure everything works as designed.

This is exactly the mission of our crowd sourcing communities, analyzing, correcting, thus providing high-quality examples for the machines to learn and hone their performances. More than the simple concept of Artificial Intelligence, we’re building a collaborative intelligence between the humans and the machines.
