Data annotators help categorize the content. They can work with things like videos, photographs and other types of material. They assess the content and then attach tags to the content. This helps group information or materials together by relevance.
Data annotation can be used by companies to help identify patterns and improve accessibility to content by topic. Annotation is also something added to computer code that can help explain the reasoning behind the processes programmers chose to use for that software. Data annotators spend their time reviewing the material they work with. They may have to scrutinize this material closely to ensure that it is accurately and thoroughly tagged.
Data annotators need to have strong computer skills because their work involves reviewing material on computers and using computers to categorize content. Data annotators also need good organizational skills because it is important that they establish proper classifications and apply them appropriately. Attention to detail is important because they may work with similar images or material and need to take note of any distinctions between the content.
