  • Publication number: 20210125004
    Abstract: Systems and methods for automatic labeling of data with user validation and/or correction of the labels. In one implementation, unlabeled images are received at an execution module and changes are made to the unlabeled images based on the execution module's training. The resulting labeled images are then sent to a user for validation of the changes. The feedback from the user is then used in further training the execution module to further refine its behaviour when applying changes to unlabeled images. To train the execution module, training data sets of images with changes manually applied by users are used. The execution module thus learns to apply the changes to unlabeled images. The feedback from the user works to improve the resulting labeled images from the execution module.
