Personalizing the Ferrari Challenge Experience with Andy Keller and Emile Chin-Dickey

    800 800 This Week in Machine Learning & AI

    In this episode, I’m joined by Andy Keller and Emile Chin-Dickey to discuss Intel’s partnership with the Ferrari Challenge North American Series.

    Andy is a Deep Learning Data Scientist at Intel and Emile is Senior Manager of Marketing Partnerships at the company. In this show, Emile gives us a high-level overview of the Ferrari Challenge partnership and the goals of the collaboration. Andy & I then dive into the AI aspects of the project, including how the training data was collected, the techniques they used to perform fine-grained object detection in the video streams, how they built the analytics platform, some of the remaining challenges with this project, and more!

    I’d like to thank our friends at Intel AI for their continued support of the podcast. Intel was extremely active at this year’s CES, with a bunch of AI, autonomous driving and VR related announcements. One of the more interesting partnerships announced was a collaboration with the Ferrari Challenge North America race series. Along with the folks at Ferrari Challenge, Intel AI aspires to make the racing viewing experience more personalized by using deep computer vision to detect and monitor individual race cars via camera feeds, and allowing viewers choose the specific car’s feeds that they’d like to watch. Look for my conversation with Intel’s Andy Keller and Emile Chin-Dickey, episode 104 in this series, for an in-depth discussion about this project, and be sure to visit ai.intel.com where you’ll find Andy’s technical blog post on the topic!
