- “The hidden secret of artificial intelligence is that much of it is actually powered by humans.
- To be specific, the supervised learning algorithms that have gained much of the attention recently are dependent on humans to provide well-labeled training data
- According to analyst firm Cognilytica, over 80% of AI project time is spent preparing and labeling data for use in machine learning projects:
- According to a recent report from research firm Cognilytica, over 35 companies are currently engaged in providing human labor to add labels and annotation to data to power supervised learning algorithms.”
