Labelbox breakthrough customer awards


Working with hundreds of organizations across a range of verticals has allowed us to recognize what makes the best MLOps teams so successful. It has also inspired us to create the Labelbox Breakthrough Customer Awards. The intent is to recognize companies that are excelling in both vision (the challenge being tackled) and execution (especially tied to data annotation and optimization). Our hope is that this award will highlight work that deserves to be recognized and inspire many others to continue improving their own ML operations.


We created a set of criteria to gauge which of our customers was gaining substantial traction in their MLOperations, improving speed of iteration, reducing overall costs, and driving towards breakthroughs with potential to significantly improve our world. We assessed how they have built their processes around Labelbox and spoke to many about best practices and lessons learned. Here are a few things we discovered these great ML teams have in common:

Build a system to harness data and improve consistency
Orient around quality
Incorporate automation for greater efficiencies
Address the unexpected

The 2021 Labelbox biggest breakthrough

Genentech develops breakthrough labeling process for medical imagery ML
Training deep learning algorithms to find and classify images taken from real patients often requires meticulously labeled medical imagery numbering in the hundreds and even thousands. Genentech has revolutionized their ML processes by having domain experts train teams of labelers on medical imagery annotation tasks. With regular labelers creating annotations, which are then sampled and reviewed for quality by experts, Genentech has developed a much faster and less expensive way to create training data and get their life-saving algorithms to production.
