The best way to improve the accuracy of machine learning models is to increase the amount of labeled data ingested and/or re-label existing data, according to Jaxon.ai.

Jaxon aims to eliminate this bottleneck and allowing models to be updated continuously.
With self-adjusting pipelines, Jaxon is said to adapt to each organization’s nuanced data and domain-specific terminology. Training sets are created using existing data, as well as new text streaming in from online and internal sources. Jaxon labels can train any text-based predictive model and can be used for document classification, recommenders, chatbots, customer insights and trend detection.
