In 2018, Microsoft bought Lobe, a San Francisco-based startup that made a platform for building, training and shipping custom deep-learning models.

I had seen a demo of this last November, but was forbidden from speaking about it publicly. 🙂

This week, Microsoft made some of Lobe’s technology publicly available and I encourage you to check it out.

On October 26, available a public preview of a Lobe app for training machine-learning models. Available for both Windows and Mac, the Lobe app is free and designed to enable people with no data science experience to import images into the app and label them to create a machine learning dataset.
