Innodata in the News

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 3, 2021 /  Innodata Inc. (NASDAQ:INOD), a leading data engineering company, today announced that it has expanded its capabilities to support large-scale robotics artificial intelligence initiatives such as Dexai Robotics’ AI Kitchen Robot, Alfred.

Dexai, a leader in commercial kitchen robotics, engaged Innodata to create training data that will allow its flagship robot, Alfred, to detect ingredients, prepare meals, and recognize spills to prevent food waste. Rollout into commercial kitchens will take place in 2021, and each new installation will require training on new parameters – ingredients, kitchen layout, and types of spillage. Training requires semantic segmentation of thousands of images across dozens of ingredient types in turnaround times as short as two weeks. Innodata plans to quickly scale this effort while guaranteeing 95% pixel accuracy. According to Dexai data scientist Alan Zhou, “Combining high quality data from Innodata with Dexai’s state of the art machine learning algorithms will help empower Alfred’s computer vision models to learn faster with increased accuracy.”

"Innodata is playing a critical role in training and hardening the AI behind Dexai's food service automation robots."
