Computer vision models often require large amounts of labeled and domain-relevant data for effective training. For analyzing drone video, models trained on existing computer vision datasets such as ImageNet don’t always transfer to the desired domain well. CCRi Data Scientist Monica Rajendiran will describe how she and her team take advantage of the photo-realism and access to high-level semantic information in the video game Grand Theft Auto to train computer vision models that can perform object detection and image captioning on real drone, security camera, and even infrared footage in the face of poor video quality, compression artifacts, and clutter.
