Divya Jain, Technical Director at Tyco Innovation, presents the "End to End Fire Detection Deep Neural Network Platform" tutorial at the May 2017 Embedded Vision Summit.
This presentation dives deep into a real-world problem of fire detection to see what it takes to build a complete solution using CNNs. Fire is specifically challenging because it doesn’t have a fixed shape or size like other objects. The presentation begins with a discussion of the technology stack, followed by the algorithm, and concluding with a review of the end to end architecture. Jain discusses the challenges her company encountered while training this algorithm and how they worked through them by building a scalable and reusable platform.
