Data Augmentation: From Hand-Crafting to Generative Models

In this talk, we will take a close look at strategies for data augmentation in machine learning. While data augmentation started out as a set of simple transformations in Computer Vision, it has grown into its own field of investigation, including fields such as NLP and Robotics. Modern approaches rely on diverse augmentation strategies and even learned generative models to produce high-quality augmentations. We will discuss major milestones of this development, as well as pros and cons of different approaches.
