AlchemyAPI’s goal is to democratize artificial intelligence technology, making it accessible to everyone. Using a method of artificial intelligence, known as deep learning, AlchemyAPI has developed the ability to train very large and deep neural networks efficiently while remaining cost effective. Deep learning is a biologically-inspired artificial brain that mechanizes certain cognitive tasks to allow computers to read, see, and answer questions the way humans do.
After seeing significant success using deep learning principles to analyze documents and text, we applied this technology to computer vision with similar breakthrough results. AlchemyAPI has become the first company after Google and Baidu to successfully apply deep learning technology to vision. AlchemyAPI’s technology represents one of the first commercially-available vision systems to understand natural images (such as animals, plants and landscapes), while also providing the versatility to be retrained to detect arbitrary objects. In addition, AlchemyAPI’s vision technology is capable of processing tens of millions of images per day using commodity hardware.
Our mission as a company is to transform all of the world’s unstructured data into something more valuable, and by all, we mean everything, not just text.
