Encord Computer Vision Glossary

What is AI model assisted labeling?

AI assisted labeling is a process that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms to automatically label data. This can be used to categorize and classify data into various categories or labels, such as images, text, and video.

Large amounts of data are often fed into a machine learning model, which is then trained to find patterns and relationships in the data. After that, a smaller dataset is used to assess the model's classification accuracy. If the model works well, it can be applied to automatically classify new data.

The use of AI-assisted labeling has a number of advantages. First, it can greatly cut down on the time and resources needed to manually identify massive amounts of data. In fields like healthcare where vast amounts of data need to be evaluated and categorized for research, this can be extremely helpful.

Second, AI-assisted labeling can boost data labeling's precision and consistency. Human labelers are prone to error or have differing ideas about what a label should mean. AI-assisted labeling uses a machine learning model that has been taught to spot particular links and patterns in the data, guaranteeing that the labels are applied consistently.

Finally, AI assisted labeling can also be used to improve the efficiency and speed of data analysis. Once the data is labeled, it can be easily searched and filtered, making it easier to find specific information or trends.

What are the limitations of AI-assisted labeling?

There are also some limitations to AI assisted labeling. One challenge is the need for high-quality training data. If the training data is not representative of the actual data being labeled, the model may not perform well. Additionally, AI assisted labeling requires a significant amount of computing power and resources, which can be expensive.

Overall, AI assisted labeling can be a powerful tool for labeling and categorizing data, improving accuracy and efficiency. However, it is important to carefully consider the limitations and challenges of the process to ensure that it is used effectively.
