Celebrating 25 Years of Appen and What We’ve AccomplishedToday, Appen works with over 1 million skilled contractors who speak over 235 languages and are located in over 170 countries. This kind of global workforce allows us to provide the high-quality product that our customers have come to expect from Appen. Not only is our workforce global, so are our customers. We work more than 320 customers around the world, helping them to successfully launch thousands of AI projects. Our 1 million skilled contractors helped create our world-class training data by making 1 billion relevance judgements and 3 million image and video annotations last year. We’re so proud to work with each and every one of our skilled contractors. This year, we even started a series featuring our contractors and highlighting why they choose to work with Appen. Our promise to our customers is that we can help them scale their business with security and speed while maintaining quality. With our machine learning assisted products, we’ve been able to do just that.
