Posted by sachi kaushik on March 23rd, 2021

Integration of artificial intelligence with various industries such as automotive, retail, healthcare, and financial services is helping generate voluminous data. It is crucial for organizations to collect, and catalogue this data with the help of data annotation tools. Data once annotated is then utilized to train artificial intelligence programs. These programs are then consumerized and they further generate data starting the entire cycle again. On this backdrop, the global data annotation tool market will inflate more than seven-folds during the forecast period (2020 – 2030). Omnipresent consumer demand for digital convenience impels digitization of conventional processes such as document verification. The efficacy of data annotation tools in effectively executing conventional processes will continue to provide growth opportunities for market players.
