After three years of closed source work, the Diffgram Training Data Platform is now Open Source. It is similar to closed source offerings like Labelbox but is different in that it is now Open Source.

If a closed source startup, like Labelbox, fails there’s no guarantee that you will be able to get support. However a tried and tested solution to this problem is Open Source.

The Open Source Diffgram community is already over 600 technical people strong. There are people submitting code for new cloud providers, creating bug reports for issues, and more. Overall, a global team is creating a shared repository of knowledge, which means that companies can be assured they will always be able to get support and updates.

This software is important to all companies, especially large companies, therefore it’s important to show leadership in this space. We estimate, based on analytics from installs and public information, that Diffgram has now been installed on more systems than the nearest competitor, Labelbox. Considering that each installation of Diffgram can service hundreds, and sometimes even thousands of users, this is a substantial presence.

There are many software packages in this general space that are open source — however Diffgram is the first to put the entire platform in the open, which has supported over 40,000,000 annotations. There is no separate remote service to get value from it. Instead, Diffgram’s business model is to charge larger teams who have a significant volume of users and people who wish to use the fully hosted platform.

Those interested in trying Diffgram can learn more at or view the code on Github.

Founded in November 2018 Diffgram has had two rounds of funding, as well as funding from the US Small Business Administration. Diffgram customers include sports analytics, insurance, industrial logistics, and consumer staples manufacturing to name a few.
