Real-time human-in-the-loop labeling


As an admin, you can configure the real-time human-in-the-loop (HIL) labeling workflow. Enabling real-time HIL labeling comes with the following benefits:

  • Have a quick turnaround time for labels

  • Integrate a continuous workflow for your labeling team

  • Use human-labeled data to train your computer model


  1. Select a project.

  2. Navigate to the Settings tab.

  3. Select the "Automation" section.

  4. Toggle on “Real-time labeling”.


Configuring real-time labeling will modify your members’ labeling workflow slightly. When all assets in the queue are labeled, the user will see a button that says “Wait for next asset”.


Clicking on “Wait for next asset” will display a real-time screen that will automatically display the next task that enters the queue.


When a new asset is added to the project, the new asset will appear on the screen.
