Manual object identification labelling is laborious, time-consuming and prone to inconsistencies hindering advancements in various computer vision tasks.These inconsistencies can lead to inaccurate models with poor performance. Considering these potential consequences, highlights the importance of addressing labelling challenges for ethical and responsible AI development. To address this our study evaluates several popular platforms for their suitability in tackling these challenges. Roboflow, Makesense.ai, SentiSight.ai, Labelbox and SuperAnnotate are the five different data labelling platforms that have been taken for assessment. The study identifies strengths and weaknesses of each platform in the context of basketball detection using YOLO v8, a deep learning model for object detection, image classification, and image segmentation. Each platform is analysed based on features, ease of use, pricing, and support for image annotation, object detection, and YOLO v8 integration. After analysing these factors, a final recommendation is made, highlighting the platform that demonstrably offers the best balance of features, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness for this specific task. The study helps in deeper exploration of the potential of YOLO v8. It is mainly aimed at assisting the Video Assistant Referees(VARs) for accurate and unbiased decision-making and also empowers the development of AI technology across the domain of sports.
