NextBigFuture | How OneView Uses Synthetic Data for the Remote Sensing Industry
What is synthetic data? It is data that is not generated through direct measurement or data capture methods, but rather data that is made from scratch. Examples of which are data derived from computer simulations based on variables that emulate real-world situations. Synthetic data is useful in coming up with projections or examining the potential outcomes of changes in business processes.
OneView, a company that seeks to accelerate machine learning, provides an excellent demonstration of how useful synthetic data can be in these applications. The company currently focuses on the remote sensing industry, generating virtual synthetic datasets to be used for large-scale imagery analytics conducted by ML algorithms. It provides a platform that delivers fully-annotated synthetic datasets designed to be ready for immediate feeding to machine learning systems.
