Data Labeling is the process of tagging objects with discrete labels that identify their features such as classifications or properties or characteristics within images or videos. This process involves data annotation, tagging, transcription, and processing.
Data Labeling helps to curate data for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning projects. It forms a crucial part of data preparation required for AI/ML Model building It helps to create labeled data or enriched data that trains your ML models for accurate predictions.
Why Data Labeling Matters?
Machines have faster processing speed and better knowledge storage capacity over humans and hence are replacing them in routine and manual jobs. By harnessing their speed, you can turn them into intelligent machines. But, they tend to fall short of humans when they have to analyze and work in real-time environments. Here is where data labeling comes into the picture. It helps to produce labeled data that can be fed into machines. The labeled data provide the machines with relevant information that helps them to effectively mimic the human brain and process information faster.
Labeled data can be described as well-structured data that can sharpen your ML models. You will require huge amounts of datasets to train your models to predict with high accuracy.
Labeled data helps ML models or algorithms to discover relationships, comprehend, learn, and give sophisticated results. The quality as well as the quantity of the labeled data helps to determine the performance of AI/ML models.
To build a great model you will require labeled data at large scale and the data has to be tagged in such a way that will train your ML algorithm effectively. For instance, feeding an autonomous vehicular model is not enough, you should feed the model with labeled images where each object like a vehicle, pedestrian, street sign, and others have been annotated.
Types of Data Labeling Services
The data labeling services can be segmented into the following three categories
- Image Labeling Services
- Video Annotation Services
- Text Annotation Services
Image Labeling Services
It includes labeling images and making them readable for machines. Image annotation services involve tagging an image entirely using a single label or tag every object in an image with numerous labels. Image labeling acts as a marking tool that highlights objects in an image by sketching around them.
Types of Image Annotation Services
Different types of data annotation techniques can be used as part of image labeling services.
It involves sketching a box around objects of interest in an image. Bounding box annotation mainly involves drawing a box closer to the edges of objects in an image and mostly the image is tagged as per the custom requirements of data scientists. This image labeling technique aids in the detection, localization, and classification of objects in an image.
Cuboid Annotation is similar to bounding boxes and involves drawing of a box around objects of interest in images. Bounding box annotation depicts the width and length of objects whereas cuboid annotation depicts the width, length, and depth of objects by highlighting them in 3D
It is also called as Dot Annotation and helps to detect the dissimilarities between objects and even counts miniature objects in images. It is mainly used to identify distant objects in satellite images, predict pedestrians’ motion for self-driving cars, and identify different poses of athletes.
Also called pixel-level labeling, Semantic Segmentation is more specific and precise. This type of image annotation involves annotating every pixel in an image whereas the other image annotation types mainly deal with highlighting the outer edges of an object in images.
Semantic Segmentation helps to divide the image into multiple segments which in turn depicts it in a meaningful way for the ML models. It is mainly used for training autonomous driving models, analyzing medical images, and classifying visible terrain in satellite images.
Polygonal Segmentation is one of the fastest as well as the smartest image annotation types for training ML models. It helps to detect with precision the boundaries of an object and also aids in the detailed object recognition like facial features, logos, and street signs.
Video Annotation Services
Annotated videos can be used as training data to help ML models perform with accuracy and deliver precise results. Advanced techniques and tools are available to annotate any type of video.
Video annotation services are leveraged for training self-driving cars on object tracking. It helps the autonomous vehicular models to recognize sign boards, other vehicles, street lights, pedestrians, cyclists, and traffic signals. Live video annotations help the computer vision models track human poses easily and understand the facial expressions of humans while performing various tasks.
Text Annotation Services
We can divide text annotation services into the following three types:
- Classification tasks where each text segment is assigned one or more labels.
- Classification with sentiment involves assigning labels to text segments along with sentiment like positive or negative.
- Entity extraction tasks involve assigning a labeler with a text segment and a set of labels and he or she will identify the start and end place of the text talking about each label.
Text annotation services can be used to develop and train virtual assistants and text moderation models. It helps the models to perform certain NLP tasks like document classification, intent recognition, entity recognition, and eCommerce tagging.
