AI training data is also known as machine learning datasets or nlp datasets. It is the information used to train AI/ML models. Machine Learning models use large sets of training data (audio, video, images, or text) to understand and learn patterns in the given data, to accurately predict outcomes, when a new set of data is presented in real-life scenarios.

As AI models need to be trained in order to be perceptive with decision making, you need to feed them with relevant, cleaned, and labeled data. This is where data collection comes into play as it involves identifying, gathering, and measuring appropriate datasets across disparate domains, for making the AI setups more intuitive in nature and also better suited to handling specific business problems.

Data collection varies depending on the technology you want to train the model for. Roughly speaking, the coarser types include text dataset collection and speed dataset procurement for NLP, and Image dataset and video dataset collections for computer vision.

  • Crowdsourcing: Companies such as Amazon Mechanical Turk use public crowdsourcing which distributes the work required for collected data among public data annotators who are willing to participate in the process
  • Private crowds: A controlled team of data collectors to keep a check on the quality of the data sourced.
  • Data Collection Companies: Shaip is one of the very few vendors in the market that can help you source any data be it text, audio, video or image based on your requirement.
  • What is the problem to be solved?
  • What are the crucial data points required to trail ML algorithms?
  • What data is captured, where it is stored, and if the data to be sourced can truly resolve real-world problems?
  • Sufficient/ large quantity of internal data may not be available to companies to develop AI models
  • Even if the data is available, the data may be biased because of the usage patterns among a specific set of customers (lacks diversity)
  • Existing data may be missing situational contexts such as location, environmental conditions, and other relevant variables for predicting an outcome and thereby, not meeting customer requirements.

An AI data collection company helps you identify the type of data that best suits the ideated AI models. Plus, a credible firm also makes the data available, profiles the same as per needs, sources it via legible sources, integrates the same with requirements, cleans the same and prepares via annotation, NLP standards, and other technologies.

AI data collection is a hugely specialized realm that needs you to first identify potential sources. Outsourcing the same to credible firms makes sense as they are far more capable of creating customized datasets whilst keeping an eye on quality, accuracy, speed, specificity, and obviously security.
