Cignal CTO Presenting at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2024

Cignal's Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Eric Fiterman, will be presenting at the SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing 2024 event, taking place April 21-25, 2024, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

Measuring and validating the quality, visual fidelity, and performance of synthetic image data is an advanced and evolving subject. During this conference, Mr. Fiterman will present an overview of various methods and approaches for measuring the visual quality and fidelity of synthetic image data, including established industry standards. He also will discuss how these approaches may be integrated into a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) data generation pipeline to monitor and improve data quality and predicted performance for Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) use cases.

Mr. Fiterman's presentation, Integrating Synthetic Data Validation and Quality Benchmarks Into a Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) Data-Generation Pipeline, is scheduled for the afternoon of Wednesday, April 24, 2024, in National Harbor 7.
