Data Annotation Platform with Smart Labeling



Many of our annotation tools feature Smart Labeling capabilities, which leverage machine learning models to automate labeling and enable contributors to work quickly and more accurately. Our Smart Labeling suite includes:



Pre-Labeling


Receive an initial 'best guess' hypothesis using our library of models before the job runs.


Speed Labeling


Leverage machine learning models for quick and accurate annotation while the job runs.



Smart Validators


Use machine learning models to verify human judgments before contributors submit the job.

Labeling Workflows


String multiple task or models together in a branching or linear configuration


Image

Plug and Play


Enable anyone, regardless of skill, to configure operators with routing rules.

Automation


Automates data routing and the aggregation of results into a single report, which eliminates bottlenecks of managing manually.

Improved Quality


Break complex projects down into smaller tasks, which reduces cognitive load for labelers.

Lower Costs at Scale


Deliver annotated data up to 20 times faster at up to 50% lower cost.
