The Instructions on Data Acquisition define what kind of data is collected and annotated (prepared) for machine learning model development. The requirements for general data acquisition can be defined less specific than the subset of data used for annotations as any additional data can be used for future developments that are not specified yet.

Relevant other documentation:

  • SOP Machine Learning Model Development
  • Intended Use
  • Instructions on data annotation
  • Algorithm Validation Report
