Come and change the world of AI with the Kumo team!

Now, we’ve moved from megabytes to gigabytes to terabytes of data storage with no end in sight and companies invest millions of dollars to store and organize that data and only leverage a fraction of it for machine learning.

With Kumo, we are building the first data platform to seamlessly allow machine learning over data warehouses for faster, simpler, and smarter predictions to combat data waste and maximize data value. Query the future with Kumo.
