One area of scientific research and innovation that we would like to point out as a key driver of future national competitiveness is artificial intelligence.
If I tell you that there is a technology that the entire world looks up to India for, what would your response be?
“Data Annotation” it is..!
Let’s Know more about it!
What is data annotation?
Data annotation is the process by which particular data is labeled so that a machine can understand the material inputted and come up withan accurate output.
With technology dominating all sectors in the world, AI’s role has become fundamental.
Even the simplest of information like
The India Value Proposition
Cost, Infrastructure, Talent and Innovation are the key areas where India’s competitive edge lies.
Telangana IT minister quotes: “Data annotation forms a critical part of the AI ecosystem, but isrelatively a low skill job. As a part of vision to expand It economy into rural areas, we are building a data annotation cluster in rural districts”
The need for data annotation
Data Labelingtakes up 25% of machine learning (ML) projects !!
One of my colleagues working at MNC had to train a machineto detect defects over the exteriors of a car.
Let me share yet another instance. In one of my internships, we were trying to train a machine to detect the amount of calories in an item of food by just clicking a picture of it.
Such simple examples show us how data annotation is not as trivial as it sounds and it certainly has a huge role to play in any ML project!
With the fast growth of AI in fields such as:
The development of data annotation is inevitable. In thenext few years, the country can witness an exponential increase in demand for this, among establishments
In other words, what BPO industry did for India in the early 2000’s, will Data annotation do it for morden India?
Well, these are early days, However the technology is moving in the same direction!
