Leveraging Human-in-the-Loop Annotation to Accelerate ML/AI in Autonomous Mobility

As autonomous vehicle companies scale in the U.S. many are navigating a critical element in the last mile of delivery – edge cases. Join iMerit autonomous vehicle expert Chris Phillips to learn how human-in-the-loop annotation of on-road scenarios is advancing AI/ML algorithm development for autonomous vehicles. Attendees will gain insight on how 2D and 3D datasets are accurately annotated to provide valuable context for machine learning models including delineating lane markings, identifying roadside objects, and marking drivable areas. Additionally, attendees will learn why pre-labeled autonomous vehicle scenarios containing fully annotated edge cases are vital to accelerating AI/ML learning.
