Do you want to take a boring and routine online job yet provide a decent income? But, this will depend of course with the company.  Try exploring image annotation online jobs. By the way, I am not an image annotator but my husband is. I don’t like image annotation for myself, however, it is worth exploring, if your primary goal is to earn extra income from home. If that is your goal, let me help you take to the world of image annotation online jobs.

What is Annotation?

Annotation means to label a given data like image and video. The annotation task is in connection with artificial intelligence and machine learning. The artificial intelligence is growing. Certainly, the demand for image annotators may also rise.

How Did We Start With Image Annotation Online Jobs?

We came to know about image annotation through a micro job platform called Remotasks. Out of curiosity, my husband tried and see if it works.

No interview when you join the micro job platform but need to go through training. In addition, you need to pass the test to get a job.  Here are some of the training provided:

  • 2D Box Annotation
  • Semantic Segmentation
  • 3D Cuboid Annotation
  • Polygon Annotation
  • Video Annotation
  • Lidar
He got the tasks after he passed the test. The payout on this platform is every Tuesday. Unfortunately, the payout is not worth the time spent working on the tasks.

The rate is too low. However, I still encouraged him to proceed with it and keep on learning about those skills. What’s the best thing? Remotasks offered a free 10-day in-person training program in different provinces. Training locations are in Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, and Manila.

Why did I encourage him to proceed to learn and get skills in image annotation? I observe that image annotation online jobs are growing in the Upwork platform. 
The 10 days training paved its way for a project in  Upwork as Image Annotator. For example, he got a data labeling project with great compensation and a flexible schedule.
Well, that’s history. With regard to the task, I’ve mentioned that I’ve found it boring. Check the video below. It’s as simple as that. And may work on a mobile phone, however, a computer or laptop is the best for it.
