About the Company: Founded in 2019, Roboflow is the brainchild of Brad Dwyer and Nelson, who see computer vision as a foundational technology that can enable developers to solve problems resulting from devices’ inability to see the world around us. The platform provides a framework for developers to build computer vision into their products, enabling them to upload images and videos to train custom or prebuilt computer vision models. With Roboflow, customers can annotate images while assessing the quality of datasets to prepare them for training. Once training finishes, Roboflow can deploy the model to the cloud, edge, or browser and monitor the model for edge cases and degradation over time.
