How it works

Lightly tells companies which subset of their data to label to have the biggest impact on model accuracy.

Find data redundancy and bias

Find and remove redundancy and bias introduced by the data collection process to reduce overfitting and improve ML model generalization.

10x more efficient

Save money on your data related costs by removing redundancies

Increased accuracy

Reduce overfitting and improve generalization by diversifying your dataset

Manage everything in one place

Understand your data within minutes after collection and before any data labeling.
We use self-supervised learning combined with active-learning to accelerate your data preparation pipeline.

Data Selection

Most companies only use between 0.1% and 10% of their data for machine learning. Use our state-of-the-art methods to select the most relevant samples. Let Lightly handle the selection of the data for you while you focus on the training process.

Smart Data Pool

Keep track of the data your team is working on. Our algorithms help you only adding relevant data to the existing pool. We only store non-sensitive meta-information on our servers so you don't have to worry about transfer costs or privacy issues.

Data Analytics

Use our deep data analytics framework to analyze your raw datasets. Get insights about the distribution, diversity, and other key metrics. Find dataset bias before training and evaluating your model.
