Synthetic data use cases for computer vision

Computer vision is a field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that trains and enables computers to understand digital images and video data. Nowadays, computer vision applications are available in all industries. While many AI models are available for general use, there is a huge need for custom vision models to identify specific objects. The process of training accurate AI models is costly and requires a large amount of data.

Synthetic data is an cost-effective alternative to real-world data to train and improve AI models. Generating large synthetic datasets will bring significant cost savings to the projects. It reduces the risk of human error, removes many burdens (such as privacy and regulatory concerns), and increases the model's accuracy. Recent research has shown that vision models trained on synthetic data can achieve even higher accuracy than models trained with real-data.
