Talk: AI in Reality: Challenges and Opportunities

12:45 - 01:30 PM (IST), December 05, 2020, 5th IAPR International Conference on Computer Vision & Image Processing

It has become a common practice to use artificial intelligent (AI) enabled solutions in most of our day to day activities encompassing many domains including medical sciences, education, sports, etc. The existence of machine learning algorithms in general, appearance of deep learning algorithms in specific impacted a lot on possibility of making the world a safer place to live using next generation AI powered products. However, deployment of AI based solutions in a real environment working on live data needs tremendous amount efforts to be put in by research community. This talk is towards highlighting challenges and opportunities for the AI scientists towards bringing AI products in reality. Various computer vision based use cases will be presented along with solutions that suit real environment. The science of both machine learning and deep learning will be presented initially and subsequently different challenges along with opportunities for the data scientists shall be detailed through some interesting examples.
