Vaders(Value Adders)

The journey from raw data to a trained model has numerous steps called a data-pipeline. Each component requires different tools and expertise. We call the people, teams and code that provide these steps, Vaders or “value adders”. Vaders are the heart of ai.market.

ai.market enables Vaders to participate in the value chain of pipeline creation by monetizing their efforts and providing economic incentives to optimize the process. Over time we expect teams of Vaders to specialize. The market is focused on providing matchmaking and support for Vaders who create value in the market.
