SMART ANNOTATIONS

Images, sound bites, videos, PDF documents, or even sensor data are all types of data with which machine learning has learned to work. However, it is still difficult to consistently produce large enough amounts of high-quality training data because the annotation process is time-consuming, expensive, or might require domain expertise. It is why Mediaan is currently building its own annotation tool to help its clients to go to production faster.
