The Evolution of Deep Learning in Practice: The Move Toward Data-Centric Deep Learning

Presentation will begin: Tuesday, July 19, 2022 - 8:40 AM EDT
Presented by: Christian Eckstein, MVTec

Deep Learning has been developed at universities, where the circumstances differ dramatically from the challenges in the field. While researchers usually start from an existing dataset and try to develop algorithms able to shave off an additional fraction of a percentage point of the result, in a practical application, like industrial quality inspection, no such dataset exists. The first challenge is to build a proper data pipeline, which has far more impact on the success of the project than utilizing the latest innovations. What innovations and best practices can support this often overlooked but critical aspect of Deep Learning?
