Data Annotation And Tagging


Annotation and Tagging ensure that data is properly labeled for algorithm training. We help determine the best tagging paradigms based on data types, and continuously monitor gathered data for conformity to specified requirements. Our objective is to provide algorithm-ready data that can be used immediately, without additional analysis or manipulation. We use a combination of automated and manual tools as needed to ensure accuracy. 

ISO Certification:
Our ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that our organization has invested in our people, processes, and technology (tools and systems) to protect our data and provides an independent, expert assessment of whether our data is sufficiently protected.

Annotation and Tagging is a critical stage to ensure that data is properly labeled so machine algorithms can actually learn.

We support a broad range of video and image tagging from humans, objects, documents, and actions like gestures and expressions. Our teams are skilled in an array of tagging technics such as bounding boxes, point labels, semantic segmentation, and classification.

Tagging types include:

  • Video and Image
  • Semantic Segmentation
  • Text and Audio Transcription
  • Audio Segmentation

Data Ingestion

Data purity starts at the point of collection to avoid “garbage in, garbage out.” The cleaner the data, the better the results. We establish the proper data intake and processing parameters for monitoring data collection in real-time to ensure that it is accurately validated, prioritized, and dispatched in the QA process.

Data Triage

Triaging data can often lead to changes in data requirements, such as acquiring new information or prioritizing information differently. Our experts verify the most essential data in any domain. It includes multilingual triage for speech data, efficient grading of human gestures, and accurate recognition of spaces and objects to optimize the user experience.
