To build robust, high-performing computer vision models, you need data—and lots of it. That’s why synthetic data and augmented data tools have now been integrated into the Chooch AI Platform.
This means the AI lifecycle is now shorter, because you can train AI models faster and with less data. How? By automatically generating thousands of annotated images, and then using these synthetic images to train and deploy computer vision models.
Data augmentation takes your annotated images and transforms them: e.g. distorting them, cropping them, flipping and rotating them, adding noise, and pasting objects onto new backgrounds.
Synthetic data generation creates training data for your AI models in the form of high-quality, realistic, and highly diverse computer-generated images. With just two files of the desired object—a 3D geometry file and its corresponding texture file—you can generate hundreds or thousands of images that will significantly boost the performance of your computer vision models.
The result? Computer vision with synthetic data.
The benefits of synthetic data generation and data augmentation include:
Any object that can be modeled in 3D can also be used for synthetic data generation. Below are just a few possible use cases of synthetic data generation:
There’s just one question: how do you generate synthetic data and augmented data? With the help of visual AI platforms like Chooch, synthetic data generation and data augmentation are as simple as a few clicks.
Data augmentation: Click on the “Augmentation” button in the Chooch dashboard to augment a given dataset. You can choose from multiple options: shifting, scaling, rotating, flipping, noise, blurring, contrast, and brightness. You can use the default parameters, or fine-tune them to your liking. Finally, select the number of augmented images to generate from each source image.
Synthetic data generation: First, upload your .OBJ 3D geometry file and the associated .MTL texture file to Chooch. Then, you can specify the image background and the number of images you want to create. The Chooch platform will automatically generate images, along with their corresponding bounding box annotations, in a matter of seconds.
With Chooch AI, you can quickly generate models onto your devices so you can start testing the platform immediately. We can also create custom models for your particular use case. To get started with a drone-based AI solution, fill out the form to create an account on the Chooch AI platform now.
