Computer Vision Summit San Jose isn’t too far away now, so we caught up with Oktay Arslan, AI/Robotics Research Engineer at Airbus to get some insights on his session and what he's most looking forward to.
Welcome! Please introduce yourself and how you've got to your current role.
Hello, I'm Dr. Oktay. I'm an AI/Robotics Research Engineer. I've been developing software and algorithms for autonomous vehicles, such as helicopters, Mars rovers, and self-driving electric cars. I made the decision to embark on a new adventure, developing computer vision-based technologies for Airbus commercial planes.
Please explain a little about the aims of your current organization - what are you working towards, and what role do you place in this?
Located in Silicon Valley, an epicenter of tech talent and investment, Acubed Airbus Innovation Center is a fast-paced machine that develops and delivers technological breakthroughs at the intersection of hardware and software.
As an AI/Robotics Research Engineer, I'm quite interested in working on challenging problems that have never been solved before. To this end, I supported various autonomic tests such as sensor fusion, ML deployment, vehicle simulation, and auto-generation.
What will your session focus be at Computer Vision Summit San Jose?
My presentation will focus on how Acubed uses simulation technologies to create ML-based autonomous systems for passenger aircraft. As you're all aware, perception systems produce state-of-the-art results nowadays, and a vast amount of data is required to train these ML models. To this end, we use simulation technologies to create synthetic data in order to enrich our data set.
What will the audience take home from your session in San Jose, and what will they be able to action?
Attendees at the Computer Vision Summit to learn how Airbus, a global leader in aircraft manufacturing, is making air travel safer and more efficient. Leveraging the power of AI through computer vision, Airbus is developing smarter automation and autonomy technologies for the future of flight.
“Building a world first fully autonomous taxi, takeoff and landing with A350” is just one of the amazing talks we’ve got for you at Computer Vision Summit San Jose, on April 26-27.
Take a look at the exciting agenda and get ready to be inspired by leading experts in the world of computer vision.
