An insurance company wants to identify photo-journalists at risk, an oilfield services company wants to identify personnel at risk at their work locations, a chemical company wants to improve plant growth – and all of them are adopting innovative techniques to solve these problems, using the emergence of AI & Deep Learning. It has now become possible for organizations to exploit rich unstructured data to gain insights. These include video stream data from CCTV and drone footage, audio data from customer calls, and text from social media interactions. This talk will describe in technical detail how image classification, object detection, and segmentation techniques are being used to solve such a diverse range of problems. It will also expand on the common roadblocks encountered such as lack of sufficient training data, incompleteness of architectures, which often lead to poor accuracy.
