How it works

Instance and Semantic Segmentation Tool For Complex Computer Vision Projects

Encord is designed to handle advanced image segmentation projects and help you manage large annotation teams.

Encord is the only tool you need for efficient image segmentation and building active learning pipelines for advanced deep learning computer vision projects.

The Complete Image Segmentation Too

Encord provides a single platform for all image annotation needs, including:

  • AI-assisted segmentation
  • Semantic and instance segmentation
  • Polygon, polyline, keypoint and object primitive annotation tools

All of these features are native to the Encord platform, meaning you don’t need to use or maintain multiple custom image segmentation tools.

Annotator management at scale

Annotator Management At Scale

Encord’s collaborative annotator and data management dashboards make it much easier to scale large image annotation teams, whether in-house or outsourced.

You can automatically assign annotation tasks, monitor annotators’ performance and set up custom quality control pipelines.


12x Image Annotation Speed With Automation

Auto image segmentation can help you reduce the time your annotators spend segmenting images.

Encord’s API helps you import model predictions. Our proprietary micro-models can also be used to pre-segment images so that your annotators only need to review the annotated data.

Use cases

The Division of Nephrology reduced experiment duration by 80% while processing 3x more images.

Stanford was using three different pieces of software to identify, annotate, and count podocytes and glomeruli in microscopy images.
Stanford started using Encord's annotation tools & SDK to automate segmentations, count, and calculate sizes of segments.
With Encord, Stanford researchers reduced experiment duration from an average of 21 to 4 days while processing 3x the number of images.

Complex Image Labeling Ontologies

Encord offers the industry’s most advanced labeling ontology. You can create as many nested feature types as you need to ensure your image annotation datasets provide the best ground truth for your computer vision models.

No matter how complex the image being labeled, our ontology can support the vision for your machine learning model.
