Why is Video Annotation Services needed for Computer Vision?

Have you ever considered how AIs, ML setups, and machines based on computer vision can proactively identify video-specific entities and take actions, accordingly? This is where video annotation comes in, allowing intelligent systems to recognize and identify objects, patterns, and more, based on the labeled data fed to them.

Still unsure about why video annotation makes sense! Well, if you have ever considered owning a self-driven car, knowing the nitty-gritties of video annotation makes complete sense. Be it training autonomous vehicles to detect roadblocks, pedestrians, & obstacles are good at determining poses and activities, video annotation has a role to play in training almost every perceptive AI model.

Image Annotation

If you are still confused as to how the entire premise works, here is a self-explanatory example:

Imagine training the knowledge database of a self-driving car before unveiling the prototype. To be able to function at top capacity, the autonomous vehicle should be able to identify signals, people, roadblocks, barricades, and other entities to drive through with accuracy and precision. However, this can only be made possible if machine learning & computer vision models can learn using the labeled data sets, eventually used to train the algorithms.

Our Expertise

Productive Video Labeling Made Easy

Capture each object in the video, frame-by-frame, and annotate it to make the moving objects recognizable by machines with our advanced video labeling services. We have the technology and the experience to offer video labeling solutions that help you with comprehensively labeled datasets for all your video labeling needs. We help you build your computer vision models accurately and with the desired level of accuracy. Define your use case and let Shaip do the heavy lifting of powering vision models, with the following tools at our disposal:

Bounding Boxes

Bounding Boxes

Arguably the most reliable video annotation technique, Bounding Box annotation concerns ideating imaginary rectangles to detect objects.

Polygon Annotation

Polygon Annotation

For scene and object classification, if there are irregularly shaped entities in play, polygon annotation comes in quite handy, as it is more accurate than bounding boxes.

Semantic Segmentation

Semantic Segmentation

If you want to develop more targeted and accurate computer vision AIs, you might want to consider semantic segmentation, which concerns classifying images at the pixel level.

Keypoint Annotation

Keypoint Annotation

Biometric security setups like face detection can benefit from Keypoint annotation that focuses on labeling user expressions, specific facial markers like lips, noses, eyes, and even annotation at the cellular level.

3D Cuboid Annotation

3D Cuboid Annotation

Probably a more defined version of the Bounding Box annotation, 3D cuboids are used to identify and label objects in three dimensions rather than two, as offered by 2D bounding boxes.

Line &Amp; Polyline Annotation

Line & Polyline Annotation

This technique is best deployed for verticals that require a more planar approach towards labeling entities. It is used for annotating pipelines, roads, rails, and datasets concerning road markings, lanes, and more.

Frames Classification

Frames Classification

For data workflows concerning YouTube video, we implement frame classification as the preferred way of annotation. This lets you make videos more navigable, with the ability to skip frames and exercise better control.

Video Transcription

Video Transcription

If you want better engagement on your videos, we recommend video transcription as a supplemental form of annotation, best suited for translating the audio snippets of the concerned video into text.

Skeletal Annotation

Skeletal Annotation

If you plan on developing models for security applications, fitness, and sports analytics, we recommend and deploy skeletal annotation for identifying and labeling data sets with a focus on body alignment and positioning.

Multi-Label Annotation

Multi-Label Annotation

For certain labeled categories, you need to fixate on sub-categories to taper down decision-making and make analysis even more accurate. Instance annotation, as a part of multi-label video annotation, helps you with the same by categorizing vehicles further as buses, cars, and more.

Video Data Analysis

Video Data Analysis

In case you want to analyze the video annotation need before planning a full-fledged training strategy, you can always rely on our video data analysis that aims at helping you plan the use cases better, plan out highly specific goals, and eventually allow us to deploy the right annotation technique.

Custom Annotation

Custom Annotation

Once the video data analysis is over, we can even help you plan out custom annotation strategies, even if your use case is highly elusive and requires further detailing.

Why you should outsource Video Data Labeling / Annotation

Dedicate Team

It is estimated that data scientists spend over 80% of their time in data cleaning and data preparation. With outsourcing, your team of data scientists can focus on continuing the development of robust algorithms leaving the tedious part of the job, to us.

Scalability​

Even an average Machine Learning (ML) model would require labeling large chunks of data, which requires companies to pull in resources from other teams. With data annotation consultants like us, we offer domain experts who dedicatedly work on your projects and can easily scale operations as your business grows.

Better Quality

Dedicated domain experts, who annotate day-in and day-out will – any day – do a superior job when compared to a team, that needs to accommodate annotation tasks in their busy schedules. Needless to say, it results in better output.

Eliminate Internal Bias

The reason why AI models fail, is because teams working on data collection and annotation unintentionally introduce bias, skewing the end result and affecting accuracy. However, the data annotation vendor does a better job at annotating the data for improved accuracy by eliminating assumptions and bias.

Services Offered

Expert image data collection isn’t all-hands-on-deck for comprehensive AI setups. At Shaip, you can even consider the following services to make models way more widespread than usual:

Text Annotation

Text Annotation
Services

We specialize in making textual data training ready by annotating exhaustive datasets, using entity annotation, text classification, sentiment annotation, and other relevant tools.

Video annotation is the process of labeling video-specific entities with relevant metadata, to make them training-ready and machine recognizable.

Labeling on-road entities like cars, pedestrians, street signs, and other elements for training self-driven cars, tracking and categorizing poses and facial key points for specific games and apps, and even tagging custom entities to speed up intelligent manufacturing are some of the examples of video annotation.

At present, you are advised to annotate YouTube videos by resorting to outsourced annotation tools like video transcription and frame classification. Unlike the annotation editor previously offered by YouTube, the outsourced strategies are expected to work better in improving user engagement.

Yes, you can annotate a YouTube video by primarily relying on frame classification and video transcription.

Vision AIs and models require truckloads of training data to learn from if you want them to be capable enough of taking independent and proactive decisions in the future. Therefore, computer vision needs properly prepared, tagged, and labeled video components to be fed along with algorithms to make the models and eventually the AIs, more perceptive.

Machine learning as a technology ensures that machines are capable of learning from identifiable patterns and data, sans human intervention. However, for this to be a reality, training-ready datasets must be fed to the system, which is best handled by video annotation.
