Tips for Annotation Tools and Teams

There’s an art and science to choosing the processes and teams used to extract and process the data found in images, video, and documents for AI and business insights. We talked to Alberto Rizzoli, CEO & Co-founder of V7 Labs, a data labeling platform for deep learning. Alberto has a front-row seat helping his clients build powerful AI solutions and guiding them through data labeling and model development challenges from proof of concept to production.

As strategic partners, CloudFactory and V7 regularly collaborate to optimize data labeling operations for customers and build high-quality datasets for global innovators. V7’s mission is to create a platform for the entire AI modeling lifecycle, including data annotation. That mission perfectly complements CloudFactory’s mission to provide clients with a managed workforce supporting the same lifecycle.

  • Fascinating real-world examples of computer vision development in agtech, medical AI, and more
  • Maximizing data operations resources and scalability by combining SMEs like medical doctors and experienced data annotators during the machine learning lifecycle
  • Optimizing human and computer collaboration to process edge cases that baffle text annotation tools like optical character recognition (OCR)
  • Overcoming complexities in video annotation while preparing computer vision training datasets
  • Preparing for data annotation challenges by choosing proven tools, processes, and human in the loop workforces
