Create and Manage Workforces - Amazon SageMaker

Create and Manage Workforces

A workforce is the group of workers that you have selected to label your dataset. You can choose either the Amazon Mechanical Turk workforce, a vendor-managed workforce, or you can create your own private workforce to label or review your dataset. Whichever workforce type you choose, Amazon SageMaker takes care of sending tasks to workers.

When you use a private workforce, you also create work teams, a group of workers from your workforce that are assigned to specific jobs— Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth labeling jobs or Amazon Augmented AI human review tasks. You can have multiple work teams and can assign one or more work teams to each job.

Ground Truth and Amazon Augmented AI use Amazon Cognito to manage your private workforce and work teams. For more information about the permissions required to manage your workforce this way, see Permissions Required to Use the Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth Console.
