Versatile Dataset Services

 The world’s most innovative companies work with us to extract value from their data.

From basic image transcription to creation of ground truth datasets for training advanced algorithms, 

we are your partners in anything ‘data.’

Annotation

 

Image, text, and audio data is often multidimensional. To increase the usability of these complex datasets, annotation and tagging services identify important attributes. This allows you to make meaningful connections between data points, categorize those data points, and have information that is actionable.

Making Driving Safer through Machine Vision

Challenge
This client is using machine vision to develop next-generation rear-view cameras for cars. The algorithms need to be trained on large amounts of visual – still and video – data.
Solution
iMerit’s Solutions team integrated an interface to annotate both still images and videos. Our team can then annotate videos with moving bounding boxes identifying objects of interest. The bounding boxes can move seamlessly across frames, providing rich data points to algorithms. 
Results
The client worked with iMerit over several months to annotate thousands of images and launched the first version of their product.

KinaTrax | World Series-Winning Machine Vision

 

Challenge
KinaTrax is developing a markerless motion capture system used by Major League Baseball (MLB) teams to measure their players’ performance, fatigue, and risk of injury. Using in-game footage of players captured from twelve different cameras, KinaTrax is building machine vision algorithms capable of analyzing the movements of MLB pitchers. MLB teams can then use these analyses in order to make decisions about player health, performance, and safety.
 
Solution
iMerit teams are involved in the KinaTrax process from end-to-end. We first process in-game video footage of players and create still images from the footage. We then annotate the images based on the needs of the KinaTrax algorithms. These images are fed back into KinaTrax processes for ongoing analysis and distribution to MLB teams.
 
Results
iMerit teams created accurate 3D models for over 300 MLB pitchers. These models are used as foundations for ongoing in-game analysis by KinaTrax and were used by the 2016 Chicago Cubs in their historic World Series win.

 

Segmentation

 

Images are dense with information, at a granularity you may not always need. Through image segmentation, we subdivide an image into segments, each unique from the others. It could be segmenting “water” and “land,” or something more complex. With this segmentation, we ensure you have the data you need to take action, rather than a mass of data that’s just a mess.

Building Virtual Reality, One Pixel at a Time

 

Challenge
This unicorn machine vision startup faced a large task: how to get confidential images tagged, segmented, and categorized quickly and discreetly. The client needed a solution that was not only accurate, but secure and seamless from end-to-end. While anonymous crowds provided speed, they did not guarantee security, nor were they flexible enough to fit the client’s workflow. In-house options, while secure, were expensive and slow.
 
Solution
iMerit built a workflow specifically for this client’s needs, and trained teams of workers to securely and quickly annotate client images exactly for their requirements. As new projects – with new requirements – rolled in, iMerit workers were able to quickly adapt their previous learnings and tackle new challenges. We now work with images of facial features, real-world captures, and human gestures.
 
Results
In the pilot phase, iMerit segmented nearly 35,000 complex images in two weeks, and we have not stopped since then! Each day, hundreds of accurately tagged image files flow from iMerit into this client’s systems, ensuring that they build robust algorithms and build the next generation of machine vision.

NEHGS| Helping Genealogy Transform from Handwritten to Digital

 

Challenge
The New England Historic Genealogical Society is the leading comprehensive resource for family history research and the largest Society of its kind in the world. Their repository of handwritten historical records needed to be digitized for which they introduced the multi-collaboration Historic Catholic Records Online project.
 
Solution
iMerit’s Solutions team provided an end-to-end implementation for transcribing these records including the tools, workforce and quality check. Our team put their data through our in-house image viewer with custom text fields for the transcription and a name-guessing interface that correlated with the Catholic name database. iMerit was the main collaboration partner for NEHGS for the transcription of candidate records of birth, marriage and baptism in four languages – English, Latin, Italian, and French.
 
Results
iMerit transcribed more than 200000 candidate records of birth, marriage and baptism. This helped NEHGS create a searchable directory using which people can access their ancestral records and get more information about their genealogy. Batches of our work are contributing to the collection of millions of digitized sacramental records in an online, searchable database.
