Otta's take on Weights & Biases

CTO of Otta

Weights & Biases (W&B) builds development tools for machine learning, helping businesses to create and use deep learning models. In order for deep learning to work, itโ€™s necessary for companies to be able to monitor how the models are behaving as they are trained. With over 200,000 customers, W&B has differentiated itself from its competitors such as IBM Watson Studio and Valohai by focusing exclusively on machine learning practitioners and not on sales aspects of the technology, and by its competitive pricing.

The company has also launched a product to help different parties collaborate on machine learning models. This is geared at researchers, reducing the need for them to rerun their training examples repeatedly. Over time, this will help to move machine learning technology forward. What's more, W&B's technology is free for personal and academic use, which has fueled adoption enormously, and it is now being used by research institutions such as UC Berkeley and enterpise companies like Samsung and Salesforce.

The dependence on machine learning is growing as more and more companies begin to use artificial intelligence to handle business tasks, so demand for this sort of software is rising. Having raised Series C funding, W&B is moving to futher develop its product, grow its team and increase its marketing reach.
