About Sematic

Sematic is the open-source Continuous Machine Learning platform. As an early-stage venture-backed startup (Y Combinator, Race Capital, Soma Capital), Sematic’s mission is to make cutting-edge developer tools accessible to ML teams at companies of all sizes.

The Sematic team hails from around the world and has extensive industry experience in software development, cloud infrastructure, and Machine Learning tooling (Cruise, Google, Microsoft, Adobe, Instacart, CERN, etc.).

Sematic’s ML platform reduces development time by 80% by bridging the gap between ML practitioners and cloud infrastructure. Using simple Python, ML engineers can implement arbitrarily complex end-to-end ML pipelines and run them seamlessly across their dev box and cloud cluster while visualizing and monitoring everything in a slick Dashboard.

Using Sematic yields much faster turnaround times to retrain models with new data or bring new ideas to production. Sematic brings many production-grade guarantees needed by all businesses using ML in a mission-critical setting.
