Train AI


Datasets are used to help Artificial Intelligence to understand things for itself. For example, datasets tell AI what shoes look like, and very soon it starts recognizing shoes by itself.

Use AI

This is the exciting bit where the use-cases are

endless. For example, imagine if you could snap a picture of your favourite shoes to discover the

best place to buy them online. Well, with AI it's
