About Matroid

Matroid makes computer vision simple. We’ve built an easy-to-use and intuitive studio for creating and deploying detectors (computer vision models) to search visual media for people, objects, and events with no programming required.

With the rapid growth of artificial intelligence, more and more expert knowledge is required to use cutting-edge AI techniques to solve real-world problems. At Matroid, we’re building an intuitive product that allows anyone to train and deploy computer vision models without needing to know how to write a line of code. Founded by a Stanford Professor in 2016, Matroid has raised $33.5 million in funding, and the product has been successfully used in a range of manufacturing, security, and industrial IoT applications.
