Aporia Launches an Extensible Self-Serve Monitoring Platform to Ensure Responsible AI

Aporia | September 13, 2021

Aporia, the customizable ML monitoring platform, announced today the launch of the first self-serve monitoring platform for machine learning, free and available to the public. Aporia's new self-serve product empowers data scientists and ML engineers to begin implementing monitoring logic for early detection of issues like data drift, unexpected bias and performance degradation, and build their very own monitoring system for their ML models within minutes of entering the platform.

The reasoning for releasing this new self-serve product was to create a platform that is completely customizable and extensible at its core, with an API-first approach.

"Our new self-serve product is a build-it-yourself option that offers full transparency with zero hassle. You can maintain full control of your ML models in production, and you will be able to build your own customizable monitoring solution for early detection of any issues," says Liran Hason, CEO of Aporia.

Another reason behind deploying the brand new self-serve monitoring system is to address a common issue plaguing the current landscape of existing products in the AI market today. The digital experience of searching for a model monitoring platform is often confusing and misleading, driving users through a complicated sales process before they ever get the chance to test the product. For users, this creates a lot of grey area and uncertainty about the actual functionality of the solution that is being offered.

Using this new self-serve product, Aporia can ensure an optimal experience for data science teams who want to quickly monitor their machine learning models in production immediately. With a low touch approach, data scientists can easily sign up and be onboarded onto the platform in no time at all. Chat support is available if someone requires assistance, but there is no need to speak to anyone if users prefer not to. Furthermore, there is no tedious process to try out the platform. The entire experience is designed to be extremely simple, clear and transparent.

The platform offers 100% visibility in production and enables data scientists to easily build custom monitors for early detection of concept drift, data integrity and production issues in their models. Aporia's self-serve platform can be seamlessly deployed in under five minutes, and teams can choose from a choice of cloud or self-hosted deployment to ensure the highest level of data security.

About Aporia
Aporia is a self-serve monitoring platform for machine learning, used by Fortune 500 companies and data science teams around the world to monitor billions of daily predictions and maintain AI responsibility and fairness. Founded in 2019, Aporia is backed by TLV Partners and Vertex Ventures.

From six-person startups to thousand-strong enterprises, there is a drive to develop and to innovate faster, leaner, and smarter. This pressure, and the underlying cultural shift, has caused companies to question their long-held assumptions about what could -- and could not -- be automated, virtualized, or done in code. This questioning has led to the development of many cutting-edge technologies for managing applications and infrastructure, making it possible for companies to adapt more quickly across their entire stack, from application to network to compute to storage. These advances, here summarized as “software-defined applications and infrastructure,” have made it easier for companies of all sizes to innovate, adapt, and deliver value.

Ford Awards TomTom Global Traffic Service Deal for Next-Generation SYNC Connected Vehicle System

TomTom | July 02, 2020

TomTom (TOM2), the location technology specialist, has been awarded a global multi-year deal to power Ford’s next-generation SYNC® with its real-time traffic service. Ford’s all-new 2021 F-150 pickup – revealed just days ago – and the soon to be delivered all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV are the first Ford vehicles available with the technology. TomTom Traffic provides accurate, real-time traffic information, which will keep Ford drivers informed and can help them reduce their travel time. TomTom’s traffic service processes over 70 million driving hours every day, derived from billions of de-identified data points. By updating its big data every 30 seconds, TomTom can predict traffic before it even happens. “Automakers choose TomTom Traffic for its accuracy, freshness and reliability,” said Antoine Saucier, Managing Director, TomTom Automotive. “Ford’s decision to include TomTom Traffic in its new SYNC connected vehicle technology is another step towards our vision of a world free of congestion.” TomTom’s real-time traffic service is available in 79 countries around the world, powered by over 600 million connected devices. The service is used by car manufacturers, app developers and enterprises across a range of mobility applications.

LockerDome Rebrands as Decide, Introduces Machine Learning and Decision Platform Decision Marketplace℠ to Power Digital Ads

Decide | February 09, 2022

LockerDome has today announced its relaunch as Decide (decide.co), reflecting its growing ambition to develop machine learning technologies that automate decision making in the real world. As a part of this relaunch, Decide is introducing its home-grown, machine learning and decision platform, the Decision Marketplace℠, to help navigate the tectonic shifts – from the deprecation of third-party cookies to the growing ubiquity of unified, first-price auctions – currently impacting the digital advertising industry. This flagship technology enables the rapid development of machine learning models to render automated, intelligent decisions and optimize outcomes for brands and publishers across the open web without the use of third-party cookies or the crutch of intrusive identity-layer data. At Decide, we believe that the convergence of three macro trends – the embrace of measured media, the flattening of ad stacks, and the fragmentation of identity – is reshaping the future of advertising on the open web, Successfully navigating these waters is not just dependent on the rapid development and iteration of machine learning models but also on our ability to automate intelligent decisions in the real world. The Decision Marketplace enables us to do just that.” Gabe Lozano, co-founder and CEO of Decide. Up until late last year, ad selection and impresion pricing across Decide’s advertising network were handled by only a handful of AI models, which took months to develop. The Decision Marketplace now provides Decide’s analysts an entirely composable environment in which they can build, train, test, and deploy machine learning models in minutes. Those models then compete against one another to render the best decision given a particular ad and a unique impression. The Decision Marketplace is both an extension of Decide’s previous efforts in the machine learning space and also a bold response to a new era on the open web in which all demand sources embrace measured media as their standard approach; ad stacks flatten and publishers migrate towards unified, first-price auctions; and advertisers move away from third-party cookies and behavioral targeting. For now, the Decision Marketplace is being exclusively leveraged by in-house analysts to power Decide’s advertising platform, but the team expects that in the coming years the scope of its work will expand. The Decision Marketplace was not designed to accomplish a particular task for a particular industry. Instead, its total composability creates application potential for any instance in which large, underutilized data exists. About Decide Decide developed a two-sided marketplace designed for modern advertising on the open web. Its ad platform is powered by proprietary machine learning and decision making technology that enables analysts to rapidly build, train, test, and deploy intelligent models to optimize global yield across a distributed network of publishers. Decide offers better ad formats, better metrics, better budgeting, and better machine learning decisions to deliver quantifiable results for brands and publishers.
