Synthetic Data in Vision DL for higher accuracy, faster training
12-13, 11:15–11:45 (Asia/Jerusalem), Track 1

Synthethic Data Generation is now a popular and important addition to standard image augmentation methods and real life data acquisition and labeling. We will show how the unique, metadata-driven nature of synthetic data pipelines enables new method to improve AI explainability, accuracy and training times

NEC has been using Synthetic Data for Vision based DL heavily for both 'people in the wild' situations and applications (detection, pose estimation) and for medical imagery AI development. In the talk we show how rather than 'spray and pray' large synthetic datasets, unique, precision guided generation, iterative with the DL models parameters, can yield much faster training, overall accuracy and provide novel explainability mechanisms.
