Rising difficulties in labelling unprecedented volumes of raw data through manual approaches

The automated annotation segment is set to witness around 35% CAGR through 2028. Growing importance of automated data labeling tools in handling large volumes of raw, unlabeled data, which are too complex and time-consuming to be annotated through manual labeling approaches is fueling the automated data annotation tools market demand. Fully automated data labeling can quickly and accurately convert datasets into high-quality input training data, assisting enterprises in accelerating the development cycle of their AI-based projects.

As the manual data labeling process is time-consuming and more prone to errors, automated data labeling solutions can address these issues by precisely annotating data without issues of fatigue or errors.

High focus on elevating customer experiencing and gaining market competitiveness

The IT & telecom sector will observe rapid growth in the adoption of data annotation tools with increasing investments in machine learning and AI. According to the latest report published by the World Mobile Congress, more than 76% of the global telecom enterprises are focusing on integrating AI & related technologies into their business operations by 2021.
