Data collection and data annotation can be a time-consuming task that most data scientists don’t want to undertake. For small to midsize companies, you may not collect as much data as Google from its web and search data or Amazon from its Echo platform regardless of how much you devote your resources.
The advantages of machine learning outsourcing will far exceed the cost. In this article, we at Adept Technologies have curated a list of machine learning outsourcing companies that perform data collection and data annotation for you.
