About Playment

What do we do?

Playment’s mission is to expedite the AI age. ML models are trained on structured labelled data. We help companies to convert unstructured data into structured which is used as training dataset to improve ML model accuracy.

We work with 100+ customers, created over 1.5B+ annotations via our proprietary state of art tooling. We've grown ~90% YoY for last 3 years, are profitable and have been a leading player in computer vision globally.

We’ve built a truly industry agnostic platform to support growing needs of our customers. Eg of our customer use cases - Automotive companies build self driving capabilities, Insurance companies for claim processing & damage detection, Retail companies for shelf tracking, Drone/Satellite imagery for terrain analysis, E-commerce for cataloging & visual object understanding etc.

Why is the problem important?

Programming in ML world is very different from traditional software development. ML technology has 3 major components - model, compute & data; Recent advances in GPU has made compute infinite while algorithms behind AI are evolving to a point where they would mostly become commoditised building block like libraries/functions in software development.     For all practical purposes, ML engineers follow a virtuous cycle of labelling data, training models & testing them. Now, throughout the last 20 years of web development, we built a lot of tooling like Git & IDEs to help software developers write, version & manage vast amounts of code efficiently. Now, if code to software dev is labelled data to ML, is there a need for Github of Software 2.0?

Absolutely. ML end up spending 70% of their time managing/curating datasets. There’s a very strong need to one platform to curate, maintain & label datasets and all related services around it. Playment fills this need.


We've raised $3.5M from YCombinator, SAIF Partners, Samsung & Google Launchpad. We've been generating positive cashflows since last 4 quarters.

We've signed large multi-year contracts with Fortune 500 companies like Samsung, Sony, BMW, Nuro, Intel, Dell etc. These are really high value customers lying between $100k-$500k yearly spend. 50% of our customers end up paying the annual contract value upfront leading to very high cash inflows.
