What is computer vision?
At Microwork we're helping to train computers to see like humans do. By labelling and annotating images and putting them into datasets, we make them usable for training Artificial Intelligence. How do we go from image to AI?
All image annotation starts with the image itself.
We're sent images from our data customers and
we also source our own images using the Microwork Mobile App.
For computers, a picture doesn't speak a thousand words.
At least not yet! By labelling objects in images it trains AI to
understand what each image contains.
Variety is key. One image gives only a small
lesson. But when you bring thousands of high-quality, annotated images together it's like putting your AI through grad-school.
Datasets are used to help Artificial Intelligence to understand things for itself. For example, datasets tell AI what shoes look like, and very soon it starts recognizing shoes by itself.
This is the exciting bit where the use-cases are
endless. For example, imagine if you could snap a picture of your favourite shoes to discover the
best place to buy them online. Well, with AI it's
