Gartner’s Hype Cycle depicts a common pattern that occurs when an innovation emerges. An innovation often progresses through a period of overenthusiasm, to a period of disillusionment, to an eventual understanding of the innovation’s relevance and role in a market or domain.[2]

By utilizing the 360 thousand crowd-workers’ behavioral data and its adaptive platform optimized for processing high-quality data, Workstage is providing professional AI data labeling and annotation services to corporations from a wide range of industries.
