A UAE-based research software company needed heatmap annotation services for video frames to advance their computer vision research. They aimed to secure top-tier annotations through a managed service solution.
The main project hurdle revolved around maintaining annotation coherence as multiple annotators worked simultaneously on the same dataset. Consistency in identification (IDs) was paramount to prevent annotation discrepancies.
In response to the client’s requirements and to effectively surmount the challenges at hand, we executed a comprehensive solution. Drawing upon our proficiency in data annotation, we meticulously assembled a team of seasoned annotators. We then customized our annotation platform to precisely align with the client’s unique specifications and implemented stringent quality assurance procedures. This all-encompassing strategy empowered us to consistently furnish annotations of superior quality that not only fulfilled but also surpassed the client’s expectations.
We configured the project within the Computer Vision Annotation Tool (CVAT), customizing it to align with the client's specific requirements.
We conducted a thorough evaluation of annotators with established expertise in bounding box annotation to ensure the highest quality outcomes.
A proficient team of three skilled annotators was organized to simultaneously collaborate on the project, optimizing both efficiency and throughput.
We developed in-house documentation to provide clear directives to annotators, emphasizing the critical role of maintaining consistent IDs throughout the project. These guidelines standardized annotations and reduced discrepancies.
We promoted one of our top annotators to the position of QA. This QA annotator diligently reviewed all video frames, offering meticulous feedback to guarantee accuracy and uniformity.
We implemented a reporting system that regularly updated the client on the project's advancement. These reports also included a breakdown of time spent, enabling the client to monitor resource allocation effectively.
A total of 17,890 frames were meticulously annotated across six datasets
The project’s execution spanned 293 hours, closely aligning with the initial estimate of 300 hours conveyed to the client.
Annotations remained consistent and maintained uniform IDs throughout all frames, ensuring that the client's computer vision project received the highest quality data.
By effectively tending to the client’s requisites, surmounting challenges, and orchestrating a well-structured annotation service, we empowered our research software client in the UAE to confidently progress their computer vision research with the assurance of a top-notch annotated dataset.
