Community Update 4
Published on September 13, 2020 by Severin Ibarluzea

If you haven’t heard of the Universal Data Tool, it’s an open-source web or desktop program to collaborate, build and edit text, image, video, and audio datasets with labels and annotations. 

New Feature: Universal Data Tool Courses

With this update, we are introducing the training courses for Universal Data Tool. You can now ensure that your labeling team fully understands the labeling requirements. You may require people working on a dataset to complete a labeling task before they can begin working on the labels.

Creating a training course is super easy and it can be done in just a few minutes. Just upload your UDT dataset to (or run it yourself) to start creating your course. Courses can include questions, exercises, tests, and different editable options.

Here’s a video with more information on how to create courses!

New Feature: Text Entity Relations

This is a much-awaited feature that was missing in the NLP(Natural Language Processing). This feature allows you to draw between different texts to create the relation. You can do it just by using a one-line command and it works super fast. Not only that but you can also click on read more options to get additional commands and ways to use them which can be useful in different scenarios.

New Feature: Download Mask Button

This is a small but very useful feature that we have added in the latest update. With this feature, you can download the colored masks just by clicking on the button which is in the download options list.

New update: Brand new layout

With this new update, you can see a totally new layout of the options. It’s a lot less clustered. This should make it easier to set up a new dataset!

Other updates:

  • Feedback button: Now you can share the feedback with us by clicking on this little button on the right bottom corner of the page. It allows you to add the screenshots as well. (thanks @moufette)
  • New Homepage: We have a new redesigned Homepage!

That’s it for our fourth community update, be sure to follow us on Twitter, or join our Slack to hear more!
