Podcast: Human-in-the-Loop AI for Emergency Response and More with Robert Munro

As featured on This Week in Machine Learning (TWiML)

Figure Eight’s Human-in-the-Loop AI platform supports data science & machine learning teams working on autonomous vehicles, consumer product identification, natural language processing, search relevance, intelligent chatbots, and more. Robert Munro, CTO of Figure Eight and Sam Charrington from This Week in Machine Learning (TWiML) had a really interesting discussion covering some of the work Robert has previously done applying machine learning to disaster response and epidemiology, including a use case involving text translation in the wake of the catastrophic 2010 Haiti earthquake. They also dug into some of the technical challenges that Robert encountered in trying to scale the human-in-the-loop side of machine learning since joining Figure Eight, including identifying more efficient approaches to image annotation as well as the use of zero shot machine learning to minimize training data requirements.
