We are a group tech enthusiasts and researchers from Berlin - a city that turns into Siberia in winter and Tuscany in summer. We experienced first hand that the training of A.I. algorithms not only relies on the availability of relevant data. It also gets stuck in development cycles for years when the outcome does not meet the expectations.
A few years ago we started a computer vision project with millions of real-life images at our disposal. However, as it turned out our holy grail was not so holy after all. We were not able to use most of the available data due to bad quality, bias problems or privacy concerns. We faced the prospect of months of additional data collection and annotation.
At one point we realized that we could use our previous experience in photogrammetry and ultra-realistic 3D live renderings to create exactly the data we need.
The result were fully synthetic datasets that performed exceptionally well. In the process, we succeeded in brindging the notorious "domain gap". As a result, Promethion FX was born.
Our vision: The democratization of A.I.
We aim to help rearchers to waste less time on data sourcing and optimization while focusing their precious working hours on A.I. development (or other more interesting tasks).
We also want to enable those who have no access to data or lack the financial resources to pay for expensive data sourcing & labelling services; and those who have generally no idea how to get hands on a useful A.I. solution.
