doccano is an open source text annotation tool for humans. It provides annotation features for text classification, sequence labeling and sequence to sequence tasks. So, you can create labeled data for sentiment analysis, named entity recognition, text summarization and so on. Just create a project, upload data and start annotating. You can build a dataset in hours.

[^1]: (1) EC2 KeyPair cannot be created automatically, so make sure you have an existing EC2 KeyPair in one region. Or create one yourself. (2) If you want to access doccano via HTTPS in AWS, here is an instruction. [^2]: Although this is a very cheap option, it is only suitable for very small teams (up to 80 concurrent requests).
