Solving the computer vision
training data problem
by simulating the world in 3D.
At LexSet did not start out as a synthetic data generation company. Our original mission was to create a spatially-aware AI for interior design via mixed reality. A computer vision system that could recognize all of the objects in a room and make recommendations on what products would go well in the space, as well as how to rearrange what was there.
As we were exploring how to accomplish this goal, we amassed a gargantuan data set of furniture 3D assets; and discovered the power of synthetic data for powering visual search, object recognition, and spatial navigation. It then dawned on us that the power of synthetic data was far more vast than the initial problem we went out to solve- and like so many other startups, pivoted to spread the value of the tool we'd built to solve our own problems.
