Most readers of this blog already know that training machine learning algorithms requires huge amounts of annotated data. But a recent survey of data scientists we commissioned with Dimensional Research gave us a concrete definition of “huge”. A full 72% of the nearly 300 survey respondents reported that, in their current project, production-level model confidence will require more than 100,000 labeled data items. And 10% indicated they’d need more than 10 million! That’s a lot of bounding boxes and polygons!
