We’re Pleased to Announce our New Image Annotation Capabilities

Today, we’re proud to officially introduce a key product improvement to the Figure Eight platform to expedite the creation of high-quality training data for our customers – our new image annotation solution.

Figure Eight Image Annotation Tool Enhancements

We’ve seen an explosion in image annotation jobs in the past few years. More and more organizations are leveraging machine learning to identify everything from products on shelves to advertisements in a video to pedestrians on the road. Our suite of computer vision solution has powered all these and more, but we’re always looking to make our core platform offerings better. Here are our newest enhancements, all aimed at making creating the best computer vision training data a little bit easier:

  • We’ve added the ability to create test questions on bounding boxes, polygons, dots, and lines, along with the labels applied to those shapes. This allows customers to test contributors before entering a job as well as while they work to ensure their judgments remain accurate across all parts of the job.
  • All shapes and their labels can now be aggregated, so customers can collect multiple contributor annotations per image and aggregate them into the best overall result
  • Self-serve ontologies allow customers to create their own ontologies for image annotation, so they are easily customizable and can be changed from job to job
  • A new image annotation graphical user interface (GUI) for job design, along with pre-built templates, to make it easy to quickly set up new jobs

If you’d like to try these tools out, please take a moment to read our Success Center documentation to get the most value from these upgrades:
