Topic: 
How to train neural networks on LiDAR point clouds
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:30pm
Venue: 
Packard 101
Speaker: 
Mohammad Musa (Deepen AI)
Abstract / Description: 

Accurate LiDAR classification and segmentation is required for developing critical ADAS & Autonomous Vehicles components. Mainly, its required for high definition mapping and developing perception and path/motion planning algorithms. This talk will cover best practices for how to accurately annotate and benchmark your AV/ADAS models against LiDAR point cloud ground truth training data.
