We observed iMerit’s workflow for nearly three weeks to understand the company and its needs.
Additionally, we conducted two rounds of semistructured interviews with eight employees consisting of 17 questions each. These employees were also asked to fill out selfefficacy surveys so we could further understand their confidence level in their field of work. This data was gathered in three of iMerit’s centers: Salt Lake, Metiabruz, and Baruipur through observation of employee workflow.
A software requirements specification document (known as SRS) is an in depth description of a software that is to be developed. The document describes what the software should do and how the software must work.
An initial report has been created from the research executed during our field experience. This report will be expanded upon into a senior thesis. This paper will focus on the involvement of iMerit in the machine learning field. It will include an explanation of the field of computer vision as well as its potential impact on the developing world. This report will also include an analysis of all interview and observational data found in the field as well as recommendations for iMerit to transition from primarily working in BPO to competing in the computer vision data set creation field.
