Data quality and quantity

Challenge

High-quality, annotated datasets are crucial for training computer vision models. Collecting and preparing such datasets can be time-consuming and expensive.

Solution

We enhance the diversity of our training sets through data augmentation, which eliminates the need for more real-world data. Our engineers also generate synthetic data to replicate scenarios that are hard to capture in real life.

Model accuracy and generalization

Challenge

Ensuring computer vision models perform well on the training data and in real-world, unseen scenarios is difficult.

Solution

For better generalizability, we use machine learning strategies like transfer learning, adapting a model from one task to another related one. Our rigorous cross-validation techniques and continuous testing on diverse datasets further enhance model robustness.

Computational resource

Challenge

Training sophisticated computer vision models requires significant computational power, which can be a barrier for smaller organizations.

Solution

We choose cloud computing services that offer scalable, on-demand resources for training complex models. We also use edge computing to decentralize and speed up inference tasks, reducing the reliance on centralized computation power.

Real-time processing

Challenge

Many applications, such as autonomous driving and surveillance, require computer vision models to process and analyze images and videos in real time.

Solution

To achieve real-time performance, our teams optimize algorithms for speed and efficiency, use dedicated hardware accelerators like GPUs and TPUs, and simplify models without significantly sacrificing accuracy.

Privacy and ethical concerns

Challenge

Computer vision applications, especially those involving facial recognition and people tracking, raise significant privacy and ethical concerns.

Solution

Our security engineers implement strict data handling and privacy policies, anonymize data whenever possible, and ensure transparency about how and why computer vision technology is used. Plus, we engage with stakeholders and ethicists to navigate ethical considerations in technology deployment.

Integration with existing systems

Challenge

Integrating computer vision solutions with existing IT infrastructure and workflows can be complex and time-consuming.

Solution

We use a modular and API-driven approach to development for smooth integration with current systems, working alongside IT teams and employing middleware to connect computer vision-powered systems with enterprise operations.
