AI in Action E57: Elias Vansteenkiste, Lead Research Scientist at Brighter AI


Welcome to episode 57 of AI in Action, the podcast that breaks down the hype and explores the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.

Powered by Alldus International, our goal is to share with you the insights of technologists and data science enthusiasts to showcase the excellent work that is being done within AI in the United States and Europe.

Today's guest is Elias Vansteenkiste, Lead Research Scientist at Brighter AI in Berlin. Based on state-of-the-art deep learning, Brighter AI anonymizes camera data in a natural, yet privacy-preserving way that allows for advanced analytics and AI. 

Privacy regulations worldwide restrict how camera data can be uploaded, shared, analyzed or used for AI models. Most camera use cases, from security to autonomous driving, involve personally identifiable information such as faces and license plates. Thereby, Brighter AI empowers companies to harness the full potential of public camera data.

In the show, Elias will discuss:

Brighter’s work within anonymization 

How he got involved in Machine Learning 

Ensuring their Deep Learning models are ethical 

Challenges in creating real-time generated models 

What is the Mode Generator 

Exciting projects in store for Brighter AI
