Speaker: Dr Norman Poh
Event: DSRP Seminar - Enhancing machine learning with synthetic biometrics and documents
Date: Wednesday 11 November 2020
Venue: Online (Zoom)
Developing machine learning models requires a lot of data. The more data there is, the lower the risk of overfitting. Traditionally, we have to collect real data. While this is laborious, annotating data is even more so. We resolved this by creating tools to annotate data automatically, leaving only refined annotation to be done by humans (using CVAT).
Next, we explored options to generate synthetic data. By mixing real and synthetic data, we have solved a number of computer vision problems effectively, from object detection to classification and semantic segmentation. In this talk, I will share with you our journey in biometrics and document verification.

The Data Science Research Platform (DSRP) at the University of Malta conducts research in the interdisciplinary field of data science. The scope of the group is to use signal processing, machine learning and statistics to develop innovative techniques and to extract useful knowledge from various data sources in an effective manner to benefit the wider public.
