DataForce, TransPerfect’s AI data solutions division announced that it has acquired Skilltelligence, a provider of precise, on-demand, real-time market information. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Skilltelligence uses a vetted, high-quality community of data contributors and annotators to deliver information to clients through its proprietary data-gathering platform. The company has historically delivered trade metrics that help organisations assess their retail presence. More recently, they began providing non-trade information, such as videos, images, questionnaires, and lifestyle inputs, some of which were collected in collaboration with DataForce.
DataForce manages a community of over one million people around the world who collect, annotate, and improve data to maximise the capabilities and performance of AI. DataForce clients range from Big Tech, automotive, and healthcare companies to startups and small- to medium-sized businesses who use AI in their operations or products. The acquisition of Skilltelligence will bring additional community management expertise and cutting-edge data collection technology to DataForce’s services.
