High-quality data is hard.

Surge AI makes it easy.

There's a big difference between James Bond being a bomb at the box office, and the bomb. Machines need rich human intelligence to train them. That’s why the world’s top AI companies turn to us for their data labeling needs.

The biggest game-changer for my research recently has been using Surge Al for human data collection.

With Surge, the workflow for collecting human data now looks closer to "launching a job on a cluster" which is wild to me.

World class data for

World class AI

The best AI responds rapidly to real world developments. What did "delta" mean to any machine 6 months ago? When you need thousands of labels to train new classifiers on the fly, generic workforces using Google Translate just don't cut it — you need sophisticated labelers who understand your problems and the tools to manage them.

That's why we're building next-gen labeling infrastructure. With it, our customers have doubled their ML performance through better datasets alone.

Huge thanks to the Surge Al team for the incredible work they are doing on human eval.

Advancing the Next Generation of AI

Our human-powered datasets have powered the biggest large language model advances and research papers of the past few years.

    Data Labeling Like Never Before

    Powerful Labeling Interface

    Say goodbye to inefficient spreadsheets. Our rich tools and editors make it simple to create sophisticated labeling projects and easy to understand the results.

    Better Data, Faster

    Why wait months for subpar data when you can have amazing data in days? Welcome to a new paradigm of labeling efficiency.

    20+ Languages

    Multilingual needs? We support Arabic, Filipino, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, and 10+ other languages.

    Custom Labeling Teams

    Your data needs are unique — your labeling team should be too. We’ll put together a custom team of folks specifically suited to the demands of your labeling project and actively manage that team over time.

    Elite Workforce

    We produce the highest quality data because we have the industry’s highest-skilled labeling team, composed of graduate students from Harvard and Princeton, former employees of Microsoft and Google, and ordinary folks from all walks of life — artists, engineers, full time parents, retirees, and more.

      Training and Evaluating GPT-3 in Math and Science, Using Surge AI’s STEM Labeling Workforce

      "Nobody understands how to generate high-quality human data like Surge AI. Our engineering team was spending 50% of their time managing contractors, after unsuccessfully iterating with other data providers for 18 months, which was a poor use of their time. The Surge AI team came in, redesigned our data collection methods, and doubled the amount of high-quality data for training our models in two weeks. That data gave us the biggest gain in metrics I’ve seen since I joined."

      Surge AI’s Software Engineering Workforce Trains LLMs to Code

      “When I joined our company, one of my first realizations was that low-quality training data was holding our machine learning models back. It was taking our team 6 months to gather datasets to train new models, and our data scientists were saying half the data was unusable due to quality issues. We talked to Surge AI, and in 2 weeks, they replaced a year’s worth of training data. Retraining our models gave us a 63% boost in model AUC – which was larger than our entire team of ML engineers had produced in 2 years.”

      "The data Surge AI produces is worth its weight in gold. I used to work at Google and Facebook, and we’d have accelerated our ML development by years if we’d had something like Surge AI. Their speed and quality has enabled new machine learning products, and they get it all right on the first try, without needing to iterate for months."
