Taking the world

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Would you trust AI that has been trained on synthetic data, as opposed to real-world data? You may not know it, but you probably already do — and that’s fine, according to the findings of a newly released survey.

The scarcity of high-quality, domain-specific datasets for testing and training AI applications has left teams scrambling for alternatives. Most in-house approaches require teams to collect, compile, and annotate their own DIY data — further compounding the potential for biases, inadequate edge-case performance (i.e. poor generalization), and privacy violations.

However, a saving grace appears to already be at hand: advances in synthetic data. This computer-generated, realistic data intrinsically offers solutions to practically every item on the list of mission-critical problems teams currently face.
