What’s New?

Building an effective model requires more than just uploading your data and flipping a switch, as any machine learning practitioner knows. Organizing your team, establishing ground truth, implementing automation, and creating an effective QA workflow is also crucial. Furthermore, establishing ground truth and automating QA is only the tip of the iceberg.

Our goal at Superb AI is to make labeling data easier for you, which will consequently enhance your models. We've been working hard to improve data quality assurance pipelines by introducing the Reviewer function. With this in mind, we've developed a way to make your team's auditing workflow smoother. The Reviewer function allows you to structure access points for data label review with wide and well-defined permissions in order to maintain data security.

Why introduce the Reviewer role?

Properly auditing your data workflow is comparable to raising a vegetable garden. Without the effort to keep your plants alive, planting seeds will not yield the results you desire.

A proper QA pipeline is just as crucial when building a successful computer vision model. Your autonomous vehicles may run into trouble, illnesses may go undetected, and your business venture may fail if you don't have one.

We understand the importance of streamlining and sharpening your workflow, and much like our imaginary vegetable garden, we provide the best tools to do so. By formally defining auditing responsibilities through the Reviewer role within your team hierarchy, your workflow will become more cohesive.

What tasks can reviewers perform?

Reviewers can perform a variety of different tasks. They may view, edit, and review labels they have been requested to examine (i.e., essentially assigned to examine). They may also add and remove tags from labels. In contrast to managers, they cannot perform project management functions like inviting members, assigning labels, and deleting or creating new tags.

How else is this different from the manager role?

When it comes to Superb AI's current structure, auditing is performed by the Manager roles and permissions. Although this approach has allowed teams like yours to fully access labels for quality control, managers are not the only ones with the right qualifications. Introducing a formal role allows your team to maintain more private proprietary data.

As a team leader, you don’t have to worry about too much access to your project, nor should you feel the need to burden upper management with auditing. Keeping the roles well-defined helps you organize your team while simultaneously protecting your data.

What this means for your team

Assigning Reviewers from the get-go takes the guesswork out of creating your auditing workflow later on, helping your team meet their defined goals and bolster efficiencies. As part of this new role, tenants can assign reviewing tasks, meaning that managers have better visibility into each person’s workload and can make adjustments along the way.

Like other roles within the Superb AI Suite, Reviewers can be invited as a project or team member. Additionally, many Reviewers are also responsible for labeling and can seamlessly switch between their roles.

In addition, we've added a new reviewer tab to our user report functionality to provide additional depth and context to your project tracking. This includes metrics such as reviewed label and frame counts, total approvals and rejections made by the reviewer, and more.
