The labelling of data in the machine learning process is known to be time-consuming for data scientists. That's where Mark Koh's company comes in.

Supahands provides end-to-end data technology that accurately labels images, text, speech and video clips for machines, allowing companies to accelerate the development, deployment and scaling of their artificial intelligence (AI) systems.

Much like a child, AI has to be taught its intended tasks and frameworks in order to effectively and contextually grasp raw data. With Supahands' recently launched self-service data labelling platform Bolt, data scientists and machine learning engineers can rapidly label their data sets for training AI, and allow companies to focus on running their businesses.

With thousands of freelance workers across Southeast Asia working to help train AI systems and international clients to oversee with his team, Koh's workdays are typically packed with meetings both in-person and virtual. Still, he finds the time to exercise in the morning and cook in the evening to unwind. To help him stay on top of his busy lifestyle, he looks for pocket-friendly phones like the Xiaomi 12 that offer high performance and a long battery life.

Powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and a sizeable 4,500mAh battery, the Xiaomi 12 has the power, endurance and multi-tasking capabilities to keep up with highly productive entrepreneurs like Koh—and help them achieve what they want. On what drives him professionally, Koh says, "If you love what you do, then it doesn't become 'work'. I work because I love it."
