It’s been an exciting few months for us at Snorkel AI. Data-centric AI platforms and programmatic labeling solutions are fast becoming critical needs for enterprise ML teams. Snorkel AI has invested over half a decade researching core techniques for data-centric AI approaches such as weak supervision and programmatic labeling, and over two years developing and deploying the world’s first data-centric AI platform, Snorkel Flow. We have had the privilege to work along incredibly talented teams at BNY Mellon, the world’s largest custodian bank, Chubb, the world’s largest P&C insurer, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the world’s largest and oldest cancer center, and more Fortune 500 enterprises. Given the rising market interest, we’re continuing to scale our team with leaders from the enterprise and AI/ML domain. I couldn’t be more excited or humbled to welcome Aparna Lakshmi Ratan, VP of Product, Kiran Bondalapati, VP of Engineering, Shwetha Alampalli, Head of Talent, and Karim Tarmohamed, VP of Sales to Snorkel AI’s executive team.
