Why you should join Slai

Slai is building the developer-friendly machine learning platform. We’re a different type of ML platform that enables developers to build state-of-the-art machine learning apps into their products.

Machine learning is eating software, but it’s still difficult for developers to leverage ML in their products. Today, companies are spending months building their own ML platforms, or relying on outdated tools that were originally designed for academics. We have spent our careers building developer tools, and have experienced this problem first hand. The existing solutions for shipping ML models don’t work.

We believe that for ML to reach widespread adoption, the underlying tools need to be redesigned for developers. Slai is unique because the entire ML development process happens in the browser; we manage the runtime, datasets, source control, and underlying cloud infrastructure with a single tool.
