Human Data Annotators - Lifeline of the AI pipeline!
I just read this very interesting article -- it talks about the life of human (especially women) data annotators based in small towns and villages in India. They are the lifeline behind the most unglamorous part of the AI pipeline: data annotation, or labeling. I also learnt that India is one of the world’s largest markets for data annotation labor!
Oblivious to the global impact of their work, they are doing a fab job by manually labeling the data points and consequently curating quality training data for ML models.
Also, the article set me thinking “𝘋𝘢𝘵𝘢 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘢 𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘴 𝘥𝘺𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘤. 𝘐𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘰𝘶𝘵𝘴𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘤𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘭𝘰𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘥𝘦𝘭 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬 𝘪𝘴 𝘥𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘣𝘺 𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘭𝘢𝘳𝘨𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘪𝘯 𝘥𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘭𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘥 𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴. 𝘞𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘭𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘳, 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘣𝘦 𝘯𝘰 𝘈𝘐".
