/ Blog posts

Today V7 & Aya Data announce partnership for end-to-end training data delivery, specializing in supporting AI development for geospatial industries including agriculture.


Today V7, the leading data annotation platform for building AI, and Aya Data, the largest data services and AI solutions provider in West Africa, are delighted to announce our partnership for end-to-end training data delivery, enabling customers to accelerate AI development at scale.

This partnership brings together the latest AI-powered technology for data annotation on V7 Darwin and Aya Data’s premium annotation services (including deep domain expertise in medical and agriculture) to deliver best-in-class training data for complex computer vision projects. It is also a big step forward for Aya Data’s mission to create thousands of opportunities for employment in advanced technology in low income regions.

We’ve already seen huge success applying our partnership to support AI development in teams at the forefront of a number of industries, in companies such as Continental, Dogtooth Technologies, and Lambda-Automata.

With our partnership, customers of the V7 and Aya Data partnership can expect the following:


Best-in-class Data Annotation

Our partnership combines the precision of V7 Darwin’s auto-annotation suite with the expertise of Aya Data’s annotators, including specialists such as doctors and agronomists, to set >99.9% accuracy as the standard for all customer projects. This commitment to excellence includes both image and video annotations, as well as specialist medical formats including DICOM.


Efficient and Timely Data Delivery

Delays in data delivery are costly for product development so efficiency is a priority. AI-powered and model-assisted annotation tools on V7 Darwin ensure 10x faster data labelling, further accelerated by Aya Data’s team of pre-trained labelling professionals operating with 20% slack ahead of deadlines at all times. 

Excellent Communication & Data Insights

Customers of our joint solution can be as involved as they desire. Constant communication from the annotation workforce and live insights from data/model performance reports on Darwin enable us to catch areas of improvement significantly faster and eliminate the costs of wasted data production.


Complete Data Security

Data security and compliance are top concerns for both V7 and Aya Data, especially for handling sensitive customer data. Our joint solution is GDPR and SOC 2 compliant, and customers can retain all data within their own cloud storage. For sensitive projects, dedicated high-security Clean Rooms can also be provided if necessary.
