Typical recognition speeds under 100ms, using general-purpose GPU techniques.


Our expertise in deep neural nets helped us achieve the world's best published image labelling results.


We scale to your demand. Our systems are built on proven infrastructure with automatic scaling to handle processing of millions of images.

World Class Performance

Clarifai is pushing the limits of practical artificial intelligence. Our image recognition systems held the top 5 spots for classifying objects in images in the ImageNet 2013 competition. Optimized systems go even further, achieving lower error rates at 10x the speed with 1/5th of the memory footprint.
