Goodbye onetask, Hello Kern!

Published:

A couple of weeks ago, we realized that onetask needed a rebranding as we steadily drifted further from our initial naming. We’re giving our everything each day to improve data-centric AI, starting at data labeling but going far further. We decided to say goodbye to onetask.ai and welcome kern.ai as our new brand.


We chose Kern for the following reasons:

  • It resembles the meaning of a kernel, the core of an operating system. We believe that our dev tooling will one day become a future operating system for data scientists and software engineers working on data-centric AI.
  • In addition to the analogy of an operating system, it also describes kernel functions in Data Science, transforming raw data into training data.
  • We are a remote-first company with a growing team of international team members, but still, have our origin in Germany. We all think it is terrific that Kern can directly translate into our vision: Becoming the core of data-centric AI.


We have great things planned for the future, so stay tuned. I couldn’t be more excited about the journey we’re on! :-)

Become a data pioneer now

Algorithms aren’t the bottlenecks. It’s data. We shorten AI development from months to days by programmatically scaling your data labeling tasks.
