Abstract

Nowadays, collecting the right dataset for machine learning is often more challenging than choosing the model. We address this with photorealistic synthetic training data – labelled images of humans made using computer graphics. With synthetics we can generate clean labels without annotation noise or error, produce labels otherwise impossible to annotate by hand, and easily control variation and diversity in our datasets. I will show you how synthetics underpins our work on understanding humans, including how it enables fast and accurate 3D face reconstruction, in the wild.
