With data being the oil of machine learning, the adage “garbage in, garbage out” could not be truer. When I began to build the technology for photos on demand, I quickly realized that using scraped data presented both technical and legal minefields. As a result we at vAIsual decided to create our own datasets with professional, studio photography and GDPR compliant model releases. In this presentation I will explain how the lighting conditions and work flow for dataset design compliments the latest algorithms to deliver photo realistic images.
