Train AI models with super-precise Image Annotation & Image Tagging Services

All advanced computing systems based on computer vision require airtight training data for accurate results. Regardless of which industry or market segment you’re into, your AI-driven product will fail to yield desirable results if you don’t train it right. That is exactly where image labeling comes in. This is an inevitable process that makes your AI’s results more accurate, relevant and bias-free by annotating or tagging all the elements in an image.

In an image of a restaurant, your machine learning module would learn what tables, plates, food, cutlery, water and more are and precisely differentiate each in images once it starts training with the right data. For that to happen, thousands of objects in an image have to be labeled meticulously by experts. At Shaip, we have industry pioneers who have been working on image labeling for decades. From conventional images to highly-niche medical data, we can annotate them all.

Image Annotation Tool

We have one of the most advanced image labeling tool or image annotation tool in the market that makes image labeling precise and super-functional. Besides, it also makes dynamic scalability possible. No matter if your project requires complex datasets, has a limited time to market, or razor-sharp annotation mandates, we can deliver with our proprietary image labeling platform.

However, not all projects dictate the implementation of the same image labeling technique. Every project is unique in terms of its requirements & use case and only case-specific techniques work for the most accurate outcomes.

Image Annotation Companies, such as Shaip, deploys diverse labeling techniques after carefully studying project scope and requirements. Depending on your machine learning project, we would work on one or a combination of these image annotation techniques:

Types of Image Annotation

Image Annotation Techniques – We Master

The various types of Annotation are as follows

Bounding box - image annotation

Bounding Boxes

The most commonly used image labeling technique in computer vision is bounding box annotation. In this technique, boxes are manually drawn over image elements for easy identification

3d cuboids - image annotation

3D Cuboids

Similar to bounding box but the difference is, annotators, draw 3D cuboids over objects to specify 3 important attributes of an object – length, depth, and breadth.

Image annotation semantic annotation

Semantic Segmentation

In this technique, every pixel in an image is annotated with information and separated into different segments you need your computer vision algorithm to recognize.

Polygon annotation

Polygon Annotation

In this technique, irregular objects are marked by plotting points on each vertex of the target object. It allows all of the object's exact edges to be annotated, regardless of its shape

Image annotation landmark annotation

Landmark Annotation

In this technique, the labeler needs to label key points at specified locations. Such labels are commonly used where anatomical elements are labeled for facial & emotion detection

Line segmentation - image annotation

Line Segmentation

In this technique, annotators draw straight lines to classify that element as a particular object. It helps establish boundaries, define routes or pathways, etc.

Image annotation is the process of annotating an image with predetermined labels to give the computer vision model information about what is shown in the image with the help of expert human annotators. In short it is all about adding metadata to a dataset, which makes specific objects recognizable for AI engines. Tagging objects within images makes it informative and meaningful for machine learning algorithms to interpret the labeled data, and get trained to solve real-life challenges.

For systems reliant on computer vision, what is fundamental is image labeling/annotation. It is because of this process that an autonomous car can differentiate between a mailbox and a pedestrian, the red light and the green light, and more; in order to make appropriate driving decisions. For an image recognition system to be powerful, it has to process millions of images to precisely understand different objects in a segment it is intended to be implemented for.

Image annotation trains AI and ML models for computer vision by facilitating training that concerns object and boundary detection and image segmentation.

The different image annotation techniques consists of:

  • Bounding Boxes 
  • 3D Cuboids
  • Semantic Segmentation
  • Polygonal Annotation
  • Image Categorization
  • Landmark Annotation
  • Line Segmentation

Manual image annotation is a good strategy for training unsupervised ML models and algorithms, in regard to computer vision, as these models aren’t capable of detecting, finding, and identifying images on their own. Also, manual labeling concerns describing the image regions, textually. Automatic annotation is meant for more intelligent and pre-trained setups with a focus on linguistic indexing, and auto metadata assigning.

Also, manual image labeling, despite being slower, is better equipped in handling project variability, and scalable needs.

An image annotation tool is a resource that uses a balance of computer-assisted effort and manual exertion to label images before feeding them into the models

You can annotate an image by subjecting it to a wide range of techniques like Bounding Boxes, Cuboids, Polygon annotation, line segmentation, landmark annotation, and more. Once the technique sits with the image, the same can be fed into the system.

The possible industry use cases are:

  • Autonomous vehicles for gesture recognition, ADAS features, Level and 5 autonomy
  • Drones for road mapping, crack detection and ODAI (Object Detection Aerial Imagery)
  • Retail for inventory and shelf management, supply-chain management, gesture recognition and more
  • AR/VR for semantic understanding, facial recognition, advanced object tracking and more
  • Agriculture for weed and disease detection and crop identification
  • And Fashion and eCommerce for image categorization, object detection and multi-label classification
