From Research To Real-World




Snorkel AI started as a research project in the Stanford AI Lab in 2015, where we set out to explore a higher-level interface to machine learning through training data. With over 40 peer-reviewed publications on the core technology behind Snorkel Flow, today we are empowering not just engineers but also scientists, doctors, and journalists to put AI to work. Snorkel is developed with and deployed at Google, Intel, Apple, two of the three top US banks, the U.S. Department of Justice, and other leading organizations.
