How to develop state-of-the-art AI solutions using Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and Generic Adversarial Network (GAN) (Sharp Wave Sharpwave case)

Award winning AI can be commercially successful. Commercially successful AI can (and sometimes does) win awards. So how are they different, why does it matter, and ultimately can you achieve both?

In this workshop we will walk you through what it takes to create robust, impactful AI solutions. The goal is to equip you with the know-how to approach AI development in way that maximises its impact and minimises risk.

  1. Talk about how to identifying the right problem to solve, which is often harder than one might think!
  2. Explore the advantages and disadvantages of using a tech-push approach for developing AI solutions and compare this with how we successfully develop bespoke AI solutions for our clients’ unmet needs.
  3. Use real development examples from our experience working on the cutting edge of AI research and development.This includes SharpWave*, a real-time image processing system trained using unique extensions of the Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) architecture.

*SharpWave is a ground-breaking AI technology that creates clear, undistorted views of the real-world from a damaged or obscured moving image. It won the 2019 AIconics Award for Best Innovation in Deep Learning in San Francisco earlier this year.
