Products and services
Sigma.AI is a global training data collection, preparation, and annotation services company. We solve one of the biggest problems in AI; high quality, accurate training data at scale.
Sigma supports audio, image, video and text annotation.
Sigma supports over 500 languages and dialects. Please contact us with your specific needs. We are continually adding to the languages we serve.
We are flexible in what tools are used for annotation. Our proprietary annotation platform can be configured to your needs or we can use your tool of choice.
We use two pricing models: hourly based and unit based. The model is driven by client preferences and type of data annotation.
The larger the volume of data the lower the cost. There are fixed costs that are common to all projects. If the quantity of data is large, then the impact of the fixed cost is lower and the cost per hour of work or per unit is lower too. If the volume of data is large, the labelers, the QA team, the project managers and other related personnel have time to reach the production peak and to maintain it.
The number of tasks reduces costs because larger quantities of data reduce some fixed costs, allows us to reuse workflows and experience in the type of data, simplifies communication with clients, and allows us to optimize the performance and quality of labelers through different strategies such as balancing their cognitive load.
Yes. Please contact us if you would like to participate or learn more.
During the free trial we work on a small subset of your data to understand your data, demonstrate the quality of our work and align expectations, especially annotation guidelines. Typically, a free trial is limited to about 10 hours of work.
