Data labeling firm Sapien has successfully secured a $5 million seed investment from investors such as Primitive Ventures, Animoca Ventures, and Yield Guild Games to enhance its artificial intelligence (AI) model training services through a gamified platform.

Sapien was launched in 2023, aiming to create the largest human-powered AI training data network by offering a blockchain-based reward system for its global community of data labelers.

“We are thrilled to have the support of our investors on our path to building the world’s largest network of ‘Sapiens’ – our brand for the millions of humans globally who power today’s most important AI models,” stated Trevor Koverko, co-founder of Sapien. “This funding will allow us to expand our team, expand our frontend labeling infrastructure, and provide better quality data for our growing list of enterprise customers.”

According to Sapien, their services are powering clients from sectors such as healthcare, Web3, education, and leading large language models (LLMs). With the new capital, the company aims to further refine and open source its gamified labeling infrastructure, thereby redefining the collaboration between humans and AI.

“Sapien’s innovative approach to data labeling, which combines advanced technology with human expertise, sets them apart in the industry,” said James Ho, head of Animoca Ventures. “We believe the team’s deep understanding of the market and their commitment to customer success will make them an ideal partner for companies looking to train their AI models with the best data possible. We are excited to support Sapien as they continue to grow and make a significant impact in the AI space.”
