If you are a person that works in mobile, AI or areas realated to it, or you just like to follow tech space, you know that Apple released Core ML. As Apple says, Core ML is a new foundational machine learning framework used across Apple products, including Siri, Camera, and QuickType. Core ML delivers blazingly fast performance with easy integration of machine learning models enabling you to build apps with intelligent new features using just a few lines of code.
You might look at it and say, ok, it is just one of new frameworks that you can use, nothing too much important. But the most interesting parts of it, for people that are not machine learning experts, is the fact that you can pick up a Core ML model, put it in your app (drag and drop), and you can have machine learning backed app. There are lots of source code examples and model examples that Apple gives you, but there are also lots of examples on other sites.

Some people will make their own Core ML models, but “Average Joe” that is making “Not Hot Dog” app is not a machine learning expert. He just wants to use it as a part of pipeline, give a picture or camera input to this black box and get some result.
There are some great machine learning experts and people with R&D departments that make really cool technologies. So why not give them extra revenue source and give “Average Joe” affordable and great technology? 🙂
I believe that Core ML model marketplace would be perfect for that. Machine learning teams could make simple models for broad applications, and we could all buy them and use them as a part of our apps. Just like companies like Microblink sell their SDKs for reading ID cards, payment slips, invoices, IBAN, receipts and more, they could also sell Core ML models to other developers.
