Your First AI Predictions (~1 min)

Get up and running in less than 1 minute with the world's most powerful AI platform


When we talk about artificial intelligence, we are generally talking about computer systems that can make predictions. What is being predicted, you ask? Predictions usually include at least two parts:

  • Model output(s)
  • Some kind of accuracy score (sometimes this part is hidden under the hood)

Why is this considered "intelligence"? Your model is offering you ideas, and telling you which ideas it is most confident about.

This turns out to be a very useful way to do computing. And due to the diligent work of our engineers and research scientists, Clarifai models can deliver predictions in the form of many different types of model outputs.

Let's start with the the most common type of prediction: "concepts".
