Machine Learning Software

SwRI’s data scientists develop machine learning software that advances everything from automated vehicle object detection and breast cancer tumor cell detection to the discovery of exoplanets. Our services include full software development or consultation on model selection and system design. SwRI’s machine learning software tools include:

Machine Learning Methods

SwRI is a leader in machine learning methods development, assessment, and systems integration using the following methods, among others:

  • Deep Learning & Neural Networks – Development of complex, memory-intensive neural networks.
  • Computer vision – Visual data are used to identify images and categorize individual characteristics and spectra features down to the pixel.

Machine Learning System Design

Several machine learning frameworks inform machine learning system design and model selection. Our computer scientists design systems using several technologies, including:

  • Deep Learning Algorithms: Convolutional neural network (CNN), temporal convolutional network (TCN), and long short-term memory (LSTM), recurrent neural network (RNN), modified adaptive computation time (MACT).
  • Machine Vision
  • Sensing & Perception

Design and execution of deep learning algorithms may include model selection, data gathering, training, analyzing data, visualization, and interpretation and evaluating uncertainty.
