Doccano is a tool to create labeled data for *training a machine learning model* (the AI things). Usually, the data is raw text, and we assign a label to text, which process is labeling or annotation. Doccano is very user-friendly tools for the annotation process, which make the annotator an easy life.
Below is our vision for this tool.
So far "creating labeled data" is done by developers or researchers to train their AI model. But recently, creating AI models are automated. Because of this, developers can make their own model by only "prepare the data". In the future, we think "creating labeled data" will be more general and more and more people, those who don't have expert knowledge, can train AI by their own data. So we want to make doccano's design more acceptable for more users, not only the AI experts, but also the amateur who want to build an AI model.
