Making AI an Engine for Job Growth

The Rise of AI

An Engine for Job Creation

We believe the rise of Artificial Intelligence will become the single largest engine for job creation in our generation. Most importantly we believe that these jobs can be meaningful and dignified, while raising the standard of living for all.

At Alegion, we’re not satisfied with just imagining that kind of world. We’re working hard to make it happen.

AI needs humans

We understand how AI really works. And it doesn’t work at all without help from humans.

We have put many thousands of people to work, around the world, training AI software to exhibit human judgment. They add human insight to the data that trains our customers’ algorithms. During testing, they show AI models what they’ve gotten wrong. And as far out as we can see, production AI systems will require human assistance when it comes to the new and unexpected. We believe that human involvement in AI training will be a prominent working role in the near future.

a path for human improvement

We put people to work using our own AI platform. Our platform makes it easy for us to steer workers into areas where they have aptitude and are productive. At the same time, we provide people with on-demand training and skill improvement paths. These efforts empower workers to continuously improve themselves and immediately recognize the value of their training investment.

Global Impact

We’re collaborating with non-profit organizations, governments, and other impact-focused businesses to build a global tapestry of impact centers.

Our Hope

50 Standalone Impact Centers by the End of 2020

These centers are located physically close to disenfranchised workforces, and serve as both community work centers and remote worker training centers. At this time, we have established centers in Malaysia and Egypt, where thousands of people use our platform to prepare ML training data and oversee model testing.

US Impact

Our heart for people begins in our home country

We partner with US non-profits to create job training and fulfillment centers just as we do overseas. Many of our customers require US-based data specialists due to higher risk sensitivity or regulatory mandate.
