Hi I am looking to create / use labelme type tools within this tool for annotation - has anyone had any luck with that? thanks!
Hi! Prodigy's manual image interface is still under development. You can see an early demo here:
This is a very early and experimental draft – but I like sharing our work in progress to show what we're working on. This interface shows a simple, manual UI for annotating image spans (both rectangular and free-form polygon shapes). I ended up writing the whole thing from scratch, so it's still a bit rough.
To illustrate the span annotations the interface is producing behind the scenes, I've added a box underneath the image. This is obviously just for demo purposes and won't be present in Prod…
If you have annotated bounding boxes using a different tool and want to import them to Prodigy to re-annotate them or train a model in the loop, you can convert them to Prodigy's JSON format. This thread has some more details and strategies:
Yes, this is definitely possible – you’ll just have to plug in your own model implementation. The
LightNet codebase (our Python port of DarkNet) is still very experimental. We did use it internally to try an active learning workflow, and it looked promising, but it’s not production-ready and still fairly brittle, which is why there’s currently no built-in image.teach recipe, and only the image.test to try out the image interface on your own data.
Instead of LightNet, you probably want to use a …
In my comment here, I've also shared a converter recipe for the
VGG Image Annotator:
Yes, it doesn't yet work out of the box, but you can still use Prodigy to train an image model in the loop. We did experiment with the YOLO models a lot (and even wrote our own little Python wrapper for Darknet – but it's not that stable). With Prodigy, we first wanted to focus on the NLP capabilities, since this is what we know best – but computer vision is definitely on our radar and something we're actively working on for both the downloadable tool, as well as the upcoming annotation manager. …
