Sky Engine has been invited second year in a row to set up the Deep Learning Workshops providing Instructor-Led Training at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC), taking place March 22-26, 2020 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Sky Engine will provide 2 hours long training session “Raytracing for Deep Neural Networks training” including basics of generative 3D scene preparation for AI-driven computer vision training in virtual reality with procedural geometry, lighting and texturing, as well as creation of auto-balanced rendering data sources ready for deep learning. Everything available during hands-on session performed by Sky Engine’s experts. Sky Engine AI was leading the Workshops also during NVidia's GTC 2019 having a full house of 150 people.

Sky Engine will showcase full-stack evolutionary artificial intelligence (AI) engine providing automatic data generation and deep learning pipeline for computer vision applications. Sky Engine can generate data using proprietary, dedicated rendering system where images come already labeled being ready for the deep learning. Rendering system is tightly coupled with the deep learning pipeline to ensure the evolution of Sky Engine - during the training Sky Engine can spot ambiguous situations that deteriorate the accuracy of the AI model and asks renderer to provide more imagery data to reflect problematic situations that the deep learning could improve. Also, Sky Engine improves with every conducted experiment.

Sky Engine is planned to be available on the market around mid 2020 in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model with the pricing strategy based on the value it will bring to the customers in their applications of computer vision.

Sky Engine combines a ray tracing rendering system that is directly integrated with the AI framework and designed to render images for training machine/computer vision AI in virtual environments. Sky Engine generates training data using virtual computer generated imagery (CGI) scenes. By automatically changing parameters like camera position, object size and location, material properties and lighting in the CGI scene, Sky Engine can generate a massive number of already annotated images for AI computer vision training ensuring high accuracy of the inference.

ALLEGORITHMIC, an Adobe company, and SKY ENGINE have signed an agreement that provides for integration between Sky Engine’s AI platform and Allegorithmic’s  Substance Designer to massively extend what is possible today in the field of self-learning AI for computer vision.

Sky Engine is solving some of the biggest challenges in computer vision today. The problem is massive amounts of data are needed for training the AI models used in computer vision, and often this data must be labeled by a human first. Very few companies have the resources to do this, now Sky Engine has developed a way to link computer generated images (CGI) directly to the process of training the AI models used in computer vision.

By using computer generated images in AI, a single scene created by a CGI artist can be used to generate tens of thousands of images that are in the process also all labeled. This can be taken further by animating the CGI scenes, opening a massive range of opportunities that were previously thought impossible. From medical imaging to self-driving cars, to detailed player analytics from broadcast sports footage, Sky Engine is leading the way.

Allegorithmic’s Substance will be used directly within the Sky Engine’s renderer to texture objects within a CGI scene. Texturing is how colors and effects like skin, fish scales, tree bark or even water are applied to computer generated images. Substance is a unique ecosystem of tools and content that empowers CGI artists to paint and texture 3D models faster than ever. The partnership means Substance will now be tightly integrated within Sky Engine making it much faster and easier for CGI artists to create scenes that can be used in training AI for computer vision.

The collaboration between Allegorithmic and Sky Engine is a massive step forward in realizing the opportunity for self-learning AI in computer vision. It brings together advanced technology in computer generated imagery with cutting-edge technology in self-learning AI for computer vision. Not only are there huge applications for this technology already, the partnership has the potential to create a brand-new market for using AI in postproduction video editing in the film industry. The technology is already being used in projects that rely on computer vision, from medical imaging to elite sports analytics.

Allegorithmic: 

Allegorithmic, an Adobe company, is the creator of Substance, the reference solution for 3D texture and digital material creation. Allegorithmic’s Substance is the market leader in developing the tools needed to texture objects within a CGI scene. 

Sky Engine:

Sky Engine is advancing Artificial Intelligence through pioneering software that uses computer generated images and proprietary image rendering technology to train computer vision AI.
