DragonPaint – Bootstrapping Small Data to Color Cartoons - K. Gretchen Greene

Let the geometry of dragons create your training set for you.

The creation of sufficient quantities of labeled training data is one of the biggest challenges for machine learning applications, especially when the data itself must be created, not just labeled.

DragonPaint presents a generalizable strategy for minimizing the manual creation of data using rule based algorithms to automate the creation of a restricted subset of data and then bootstrapping to the automated creation of unrestricted (rule breaking) training and test data.

A gentle introduction to computer vision, graphics and Machine Learning, accessible to beginners.
