One wonders, how can we make data annotation, a job that is so repetitive and tedious, more refreshing?
One wonders, how can you make data annotation, a job that is so repetitive and tedious for some to be more refreshing?
Well, one of the ways is to make it accessible through a different platform, such as a phone.
The next question. How do you make data annotation fun and enjoyable?
By making it into a game!
When I was a data annotator in my previous company, I tried to search for a tool for my daily image, text, or audio tagging. Out of all the tools that I tried, none of them gave me the ease of annotating on the go. Most data annotation tools are only available via PC and some of these are not that easy to install either.
“At Tictag, we try to make the data annotation or data tagging process innovative and engaging.”
I was very impressed when I first got my hands on the application because it feels like you are playing a game more than just doing a job. Now, completing 200 image annotation tasks never feels like a chore to me, because of how fun and accessible Tictag’s platform is.
If you somehow get bored in the middle of the tagging process, you can just close the app, take a break, and get on the app again once you feel like you want to continue. There are also rewards that you can possibly get. So it is definitely worth your time.
This is how the mobile app looks like when tagging:
