Goodbye onetask, Hello Kern!

March 5, 2022

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 and welcome 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.
