Learn how we overcame the odds of certifying computer vision and AI systems in an industry as risk adverse as the air traffic control sector. We use off-the-shelf cameras deployed in an airport environment to provide an out the window view of the airfield, create an enriched augmented reality view for better situational awareness, contingency and redundancy. In this talk, we take you through the steps from developing an AI using Nvidia frameworks, to deploying a camera system at an airport for air traffic control use as an imaging system as well as a tracking system using AI technology such as artificial neural networks. All the way through user acceptance tests and certification. This talk is intended as a lessons learned for your next project in smart cities or aerospace. The main focus of this talk lays on the tools used to develop AI and the tools used to understand and visualize neural networks.
