The increasing use of artificial intelligence is reshaping many sectors worldwide. The growing need for new skills is creating a challenge for many employers. Currently, only one in four employers is confident that they can identify the skills their workforce needs in the future. As a result, a new set of tools are being developed to address this challenge. One of these is an open source streaming data project called Apache Kafka. The project is being used by over two dozen law enforcement agencies in Colorado.
Another company is Sama, which provides services to more than 25 percent of Fortune 50 companies. Sama raised $85 million in funding and has an employee count of 120 full-time employees. The company is using 3,500 crowdworkers to annotate over one billion data points by 2020.

The artificial intelligence market is a highly competitive one, and many startups are launching new products that are built on top of open source AI models. These companies are looking to use machine learning to perform tasks that might otherwise be impossible.
One such startup is Voxel51, which uses artificial intelligence to analyze live video feeds and turn footage into ready-to-use data. The company also has a flagship product that provides a cloud-based analytics platform. This platform helps to identify areas of crowding, distancing, and social interactions in real-time. The startup uses live public street cam video and advanced computer vision models. Voxel51 also offers a machine learning-based option that can be used to analyze footage from pre-existing cameras.
Another startup is Hugging Face, which specializes in natural language processing. The company recently launched a project called BigScience that aims to improve the quality of large natural language models. The project has 900 researchers working on it. The platform can process text-based documents and PDFs, and can also search for answers to “open domain” questions. It also launched a project called Workplace Live, which launched automatic captioning of Facebook Live videos in March.
The company has raised $196 million in its Series B funding round, led by Insight Partners, Elephant Ventures, and StepStone Group. In addition to its funding round, the startup also launched its Viv AI platform. The platform promises to connect third-party applications and perform any task.
