Can We Simplify Image and Video Management for Analytics?


Visual data (images/videos) is rich in valuable insights. Data science and ML techniques can help understand visual content and enable better customer experience across application domains, in turn driving its exponential growth. A key factor for success in visual ML is to get the foundational data infrastructure right, which can be extremely challenging and time consuming due to a lack of data management solutions designed with visual data or data science in mind. During my Ignite talk, I will start by briefly highlighting why visual data today needs special treatment and how it can be challenging to achieve that. I will then show how ApertureDB, a purpose-built database for analytics on visual data can address some of these challenges.

Prior to that, she worked at Intel Labs for over 7 years where she led the design and development of VDMS (the Visual Data Management System) which forms the core of ApertureData’s product, ApertureDB. Vishakha holds a Ph.D in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a M.S. in Information Networking from Carnegie Mellon University. She has worked on scheduling in heterogeneous multi-core environments, graph based storage and applications on non volatile memory systems, and visual data management challenges for analytics use cases.
