Need Massive Amounts of Training Data for Machine Learning? Come and Meet DataGenerator!

Gone are the days when machine learning (ML) was limited by too few training data. Many use cases today require machine learning algorithms to learn complex patterns from huge amounts of training data. In most use cases, however, these training data are hard to come by, especially when dealing with highly personal or confidential document types such as IDs, insurance contracts or social security cards.
