Mindtech Releases Part Two of Its Synthetic Data Guide

SHEFFIELD, England, July 27, 2022 — Mindtech Global has released part two of its synthetic data guide aimed at tackling visual AI’s training problems. It’s a how-to for resolving issues related to combining real-world images with computer-generated ones to optimize the performance of their AI model.

AI developers have become increasingly aware that feeding an AI network a compound of data generated by real-world and synthetic images is a sure-fire way to boost a network’s precision.

What’s less clear is exactly how much of each to include, and how to decide. There’s no simple answer or magic formula, according to Chris Longstaff, VP Product Management, Mindtech Global. Instead, teams need to ask themselves a series of questions about what they’re trying to achieve.

Longstaff said, “While it is of course up to the machine vision developer to decide how good is good enough, we’d recommend a starting point of around 90% synthetic data to 10% real — as there is both research validating this and empirical evidence this ratio has performed well in a great many use cases.

“But while Mindtech’s data generation platform, Chameleon, lets people create a great deal of synthetic data quickly, that choice must always be led by the needs of the problem visual AI developers are trying to solve.”
