Our Mission

We want to make working with natural language data natural.

Our motivation: Excel is one of the most beautiful pieces of software ever created: a simple and completely flexible interface that exposes powerful operations (formulas, pivot tables etc) allowing anyone to organize and transform numbers and tabular data. Whether you use 2% of Excel's capabilities or are a power-user, you still turn to this tool anytime you have tabular data you need to work with.

We aim for HumanFirst to be a similarly ubiquitous tool for working with natural language data: a completely flexible interface exposing powerful operations (semantic search, clustering, labeling, disambiguation etc) for organizing and transforming natural language data around the simplest of interfaces, available to anyone.

We believe natural language data is the most untapped resource companies have today.

It has historically been hard and costly to harness natural language data, especially for people with less technical skillsets. By unlocking and democratizing the ability to work with this data, we are creating a generation of natural language owners, who will bridge the gaps between product, customer support, artificial intelligence and human augmentation roadmaps.
