Know About Data Annotation


Data annotation consists, text annotation, image annotation, and video annotation using the various techniques as per the project requirements and machine learning algorithms compatibility. Data annotation is done to create the training data sets for AI and ML while image annotation is a very important type of image annotation. A task of marking and outlining objects and entities on an image and offering various keywords to classify it which is readable for machines. Presently, Image annotation is growing very fast as image annotation is a very important task as this data helps to create accurate datasets that help computer vision models work in a real-world scenario and get effective results. We annotate & tag images with respective labels & keywords for easy and accurate categorization & help you in creating your customized image annotation services.

Annotation Services for Machine Learning – Types, Quality, Pricing Lionbridge AI


The growth of the AI industry has led to an increasing demand for data annotation services and the birth of more and more data annotation companies. Just what are annotation services and how do you use them to their full potential? This article will go over the types of annotation services, how to ensure good data annotation quality, and tips to help minimize annotation costs. Within the field of machine learning, annotation service providers are companies that annotate and process raw data, for the purpose of training AI models. Due to the large scale of data labelling tasks, annotation companies often employ crowdworkers to label the data and complete the project within the client's timeframe.

How to Select the Best Data Annotation Company Lionbridge AI


If you've ever built a machine learning algorithm, you'll know that gathering labeled datasets is a tremendous undertaking. Trying to conduct data annotation in-house only distracts teams from what they do best: building a strong AI. Outsourcing data annotation services is a proven way for teams to boost productivity, decrease development time and stay ahead of the competition. Individuals, researchers, companies, and governments are increasingly turning to data annotation companies as a viable solution to obtain both crowdsourced annotators and off-the-shelf annotation tools. As the number of AI training data service providers grows, how do you decide which to trust?

What is The Difference Between Data Annotation and Labeling in AI & ML?


Though, Data labeling and annotation are the words used interchangeably to represent the an art of tagging or label the contents available in the various formats. Nowadays both of these techniques are basically used to make the object or text of interest recognizable to machines through computer vision. Data labeling is the process of tagging the data like text or objects in videos and images to make it detectable and recognizable to computer vision to train the AI models through machines learning algorithm for right predictions. Labeling basically done with useful tags or added metadata to make the texts more meaningful and informative making it understandable to machines. And usually texts and images are labeled but nowadays annotation is also used for the same purpose and labeling is done for machine learning training.

Crowd Sourcing Web Service Annotations

Web service annotation is of crucial importance to enable efficient search and discovery of such services, especially for those that are REST based. However, the process of annotating such services has several drawbacks, whether automated or not. Automated processe are quite inaccurate and do not in general provide quality annotations. Manual processes are very expensive, both in time, effort and consequently financially. This work focuses on easing - and thus reducing the cost of - manually providing annotations. This is done using a user friendly wizard on the seekda Web services portal in combination with crowd sourcing on Amazon mechanical turk. The approach turned out to be very promising in solving one of the crucial problems of the Semantic Web promise, namely, the acquisition of annotation.
