Our Name

Why Voxel?

We are Voxel51. What is a voxel, you ask? A voxel is to a video what a pixel is to an image. It is literally a "volume element" in the space-time volume of a video.

Why 51?

A few reasons: there are many voxels; can we help you find the right one? Does the voxel you need to find exist in the video?

vox·el

/'väk-sɘl/     noun

Any of the discrete elements comprising the three-dimensional space-time volume of a video.

Our Founding Story

Voxel51 was conceived when our co-founders met at the University of Michigan.

Jason Corso

Jason Corso has spent the last 15+ years identifying and tackling problems in computer vision and machine learning. At Voxel51 and in his role as Professor at the University of Michigan, his mission is to inspire everyone around him to think big, develop a deep appreciation for the critical role data plays in machine learning, and make an impact with our work.

Brian Moore

While doing his PhD at the University of Michigan, Brian Moore designed algorithms for problems in computer vision and machine learning. But when he realized that there was a serious lack of ML tooling available for visual datasets, he decided to pivot and focus on building the tools that he wished he had when training his computer vision models. Enter Voxel51.
