Data annotation is an integral part of the artificial intelligence model training process. The solutions for recognition, understanding speech, image segmentation and machine translation from one language to other require the existence of immense dataset training. Training datasets are the major assets of companies working in the artificial intelligence industry. Internet services generate huge amounts of data every day, which can be used to build deep learning models. Annotation of text and data enables businesses to update creating datasets from scratch, updating datasets, combine multiple training datasets and also helps with training data creation among others. Different approaches to data annotation include internal labelling, outsourcing, crowdsourcing, synthetic labelling and data programming among others.
Internal labelling includes ensures highest possible labelling accuracy and has the ability to track the process, and assign the tasks to the team. The data can be streamlined with semi-supervised learning as well, and entails labelled as well as unlabelled data. Synthetic labelling entails generating data which imitates real data in terms of essential parameters which are set by the user. Synthetic labelling can be generated quickly, modified to improve model training and customized for a specific task. Data annotation tools are used extensively by computer vision engineers, AI product owners and annotators among others. Many customers have very specific and nuanced annotation requirements, which require the tools highly modular and configurable.
In October 2018, Google developed a solution which promises to cut down on labelling time significantly. The technology is known as fluid annotation, and employs machine learning to annotate class labels and outline every object and background region in a particular picture. Advanced data labelling platforms can be used with on premise as well as hosted data. Some features of advanced data annotation techniques include interpolation of bounding boxes between key frames, automatic annotation, shortcuts for critical actions, dashboard with list of annotation tasks and basic authorization among others.
