Humayun irshad (Figure Eight)
Humayun Irshad offers an overview of an active learning framework that uses a crowdsourcing approach to solve parking sign recognition—a real-world problem in transportation and autonomous driving for which a large amount of unlabeled data is available. The solution generates an accurate model, quickly and cost-effectively, despite the unevenness of the data. Read more.
