Demonstrator Deep Learning

Machine Learning, especially Deep Learning are complex methods for solving various problems, ranging from detection of persons to predicting the time for maintenance of specific parts of a machine. The methods struggle with intuition, when you can solve or when you can’t apply these methods to solve a specific task. This demo demonstrates the conditions needed for a reliable application of deep learning methods and their respective results. Have look at our poster.

The following videos demonstrate an Object Detector Yolov3 [1] trained on naive data, augmentated and simulated from our demo machine. The used data consists of ca. 40,000 images, each manually labeled.

  1. Trained without any measure
  2. Trained with patch augmentation
  3. Trained with simulated images
