What if machine learning, coupled with drones and satellite imagery, could dramatically improve disaster recovery efforts? It looks like it will.

The sign of a serious project — specificity:

The first task of the Challenge therefore focuses on building an image classifier that can take an aerial image and return an annotation layer that identifies all coconut, banana, papaya and mango trees and their locations in the photograph with at least 80% accuracy.

  1. This is an excellent application for AI and automation! Reduced risk to rescuers, (potentially) greater and more consistent information, and improved cost containment.

    Good stuff! I hope it comes together.

  3. Me too, Michael Verona. I’m starting to now track these kinds of projects more closely. There are a number of them emerging. I will post in this new collection.
