Teach Your Models to See Like Humans Do



Computer vision (CV) is one of the most widely expanding fields that artificial intelligence (AI) has to offer. Applications that use computer vision are trying to copy the human ability to see and interpret the world around them - but at a much larger scale and speed.

Looking around your environment, you might be surprised to learn computer vision applications are probably already all around you. For example, self driving car companies are using computer vision so that cars can automatically recognize people crossing the road, sidewalks, road signs and other prominent features.

Finance companies are using CV to digitize business processes using things like Optical Character Recognition to easily transcribe hard copy receipts and bills to soft copy format and extract pertinent information.

Many e-commerce organizations rely on CV for search relevance to suggest related products. Enterprise companies across all industries are benefiting from implementing computer vision solutions to automate business processes accurately and efficiently.

Annotation Capabilities: Image & Video


Image
Many of our annotation capabilities have Smart Labeling features which use Machine Learning assistance in the data annotation process to automate and improve productivity, quality, and delivery of your data collection and data annotation projects.




Video Annotation


Annotate videos to assist your models to see and interpret the world around them. Annotations can include video classification, transcription, object tracking (with additional Speed Labeling capabilities to persist your annotations through subsequent frames), object detection and time stamping.


Pre-Labeling


Assist annotations by selecting the best fit model from a model library. Increase speed and accuracy by starting annotations with a model (pre-labeling) which contributors can then review and edit as needed.


Image Transcription


Draw a bounding box around text in an image and transcribe it in the same step. Provides localized text for more robust OCR training data.


Image Annotation


Create image annotation jobs using polygons, dots, lines, rotating bounding boxes and/or ellipses and collect additional object information in shapes using ontologies for faster, more flexible and more accurate image annotation.


Pixel Level Semantic Segmentation


Label images pixel-by-pixel for your computer vision models. Use PLSS for very precise labeling down to the pixel level and enhance accuracy and performance.


Point Cloud Annotation


Annotate several types of point cloud data including LiDAR, Radar, and other types of scanners/sensors using our intuitive annotation interface.






Secure Data Access


Data security requirements are met for customers working with personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), and other sophisticated compliance needs.

We have enterprise level security options to suit your sensitive data needs,
