For today’s show, the last in our TrainAI series, I'm joined by Qazaleh Mirsharif, a machine learning scientist working on computer vision at Figure Eight. Qazaleh and I caught up at the TrainAI conference to discuss a couple of the projects she’s worked on in that field, namely her research into the classification of retinal images and her work on parking sign detection from Google Street View images. The former, which attempted to diagnose diseases like diabetic retinopathy using retinal scan images, is similar to the work I spoke with Ryan Poplin about on TWiML Talk #122. In my conversation with Qazaleh we focus on how she built her datasets for each of these projects and some of the key lessons she’s learned along the way.
