Synthetic Data Platform Mindtech Releases New Application Pack for Training Smart Home AIs at CES

  • Enables developers to rapidly train AIs with synthetic data for next-gen Smart Home use-cases

  • Customer AI applications include home security, home automation and home safety

CES, Las Vegas, 5 January – Mindtech Global, developer of the world’s leading end-to-end synthetic data creation platform for training AI vision systems – has released a new application pack for companies developing Smart Home solutions.

The smart home pack is available on Mindtech’s Chameleon platform which has been designed to create synthetic training data to help computers see, understand and predict human-to-human and human-to-world interactions – essential for next-generation Smart Home applications.

The new Smart Home pack is ideal for the rapid development of in-home AI vision systems focused around home security, home appliance safety and smart gesture recognition. Using synthetic data to train AI systems lessens the dependance on real-world data which is scarce, time consuming to annotate and involves complex challenges around bias and data privacy.

Chameleon’s ‘no-code’, ‘self-serve’ platform allows for the automated creation of high-quality, precisely annotated and privacy-compliant synthetic data – more than 50 times faster than sourcing and annotating ‘real-world’ data.

Customer Smart Home use cases for the platform include:

  • Training a robot home help device such as a lawnmower or vacuum cleaner to better identify, anticipate and avoid children, pets and objects
  • Training an AI-enabled door camera to automatically distinguish between delivery person and a would-be intruder or thief and sound the alarm
  • Training a home monitoring camera system to identify incidents such as an elderly person falling from bed or a child playing with something dangerous in the house so it can sound the alarm
  • Training smart devices in the home to recognize complex hand gestures and take their user interface to the next level

Using the Chameleon platform, customers developing AI vision systems can quickly build unlimited scenes and scenarios using photo-realistic smart 3D models. Chameleon’s new Smart Home application pack includes typical home scenes, a wide range of assets and sophisticated automated behaviors relevant to home use-cases.

The pack also leverages the Chameleon’s latest features including attractors to change the default behavior of an asset and skeleton keypoints to allow for gesture and action analysis.

Chris Longstaff, VP Product Management at Mindtech said, “Smarter Homes can make our lives safer, more intuitive and convenient. But that will require intelligent vision systems, trained on large volumes of precisely-annotated, high quality and privacy-compliant data. Chameleon’s new Smart Home application pack allows developers to solve data scarcity with self-serve synthetic data and rapidly address this growing market with innovative AI solutions that better understand the way humans interact with each other and the world around them.”

Mindtech’s Chameleon platform is in use for data generation at tier 1 companies in the home automation sector, and is available for immediate licensing.

Mindtech will be exhibiting at CES 2022 at booth 61516 in Eureka Park from Jan 5 – 8.
