About

Theme - The role of synthetic data in the training of deep neural networks

In this applied research project, in collaboration with Aitek spa, we will explore the usage of realistic synthetically generated images to boost the performances of neural networks. Specifically we will adopt synthetic images to (i) train ML algorithms (ii) support the evaluation/assessment of ML algorithms. The potential of synthetic images will be assessed as an alternative or a complement to real datasets. The generation of synthetic data will be guided by specific operative testing scenarios.
