Label Studio 1.7.2 Featuring Magic Wand Tool

Rounding out the month of magic, we’re excited to announce the release of Label Studio 1.7.2. This release includes significant updates to audio labeling functionality as well as a new Magic Wand tool!

The new Magic Wand tool is a community-contributed feature developed by our friends Brad Neuberg and the rest of the team at Planet Labs. It gives image annotators the ability to simply click and drag their mouse to dynamically change flood filling tolerance and release to get a new labeled area. This feature is particularly effective for labeling broad, diffuse, complex-edged objects (such as clouds or other organic shapes, for example).

This month, The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published new guidelines to “manage the harmful effects of bias in artificial intelligence systems.” The guidelines go beyond data quality and dive into systemic biases that “result from institutions operating in ways that disadvantage social groups.” Read more about the guidelines and download the report from the NIST announcement.

Generative AI can feel like a non-stop hype cycle, and the development of large language models, most recently with the release of GPT-4. The announcement has plenty to unpack, including an API that accepts text and image inputs and claims of improved safety and accuracy in model responses. Erin Mikail Staples, Senior Technical Community Advocate for Label Studio, wrote about the role of data integrity in both the creation of and retraining of large language models like GPT-4.

Demetria Glace chases down why action heroes all seem to be named Jack, James, or John. This rollicking thrill ride includes not only a deep analysis of historical data but also considers the cultural and artistic factors that drive the naming of heroes and villains in popular culture. Be sure to read to the very end to find out if the trend will continue in future sequels, or if it will ride off into the sunset.
