Machine learning is the idea that describes computers that can essentially "learn" and process new information without specifically being programed to do so. If you give a computer a task, it will more-or-less get better at that task the more it has a chance to engage in it. Object detection is a subset of this idea and is of particular relevance to photos. Not only does object detection let you know which objects are in a photo (hence the name), it also gives you insight into precisely where they are, too. But out of all the industries and activities where object detection is poised to make a big impact, drone services are undoubtedly right at the top.
Inspired by listening one of the episodes of the podcast Data Crunch by Vault Analytics, on the topic: "Drones and AI", it came to my mind how drones are being used nowadays, not only as a hobby but for commercial purposes, too. Drones are getting popular in the community and different industries such as film and photography. Game of Thrones TV show pays a lot of money to get amazing shots! You can get more interesting photos using a drone than a traditional camera. Just imagine the unique perspective from a drone's view, they definitely offer impressive and incredible shots.
Deep Learning or DL is a subfield of machine learning which makes use of artificial neural networks, a mathematical system inspired by the way neurons function in the human brain. AI is fast becoming an integral part of the drone industry by enhancing the intelligence of the drone systems with respect to flight operations, data management and most importantly traffic management. DL as already discussed earlier is an AI technique that gains knowledge through training a neural network, a computer system that's designed to process information like the human brain. It provides a complete end to end solution where it will design the optimum flight path for the drone in order to capture the most complete data for any use-case, fly the drone across this flight path and generate and analyze thorough 3D models based on the data captured.
Artificial Intelligence is quickly becoming a buzzword in the technology industry. There has been a phenomenal growth in recent years in industries adopting artificial intelligence and Machine learning to automate operations and manufacturing processes. There is a marked shift to the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the finance, automobile and healthcare industries which will pave the way to transform many other industries as well. Some of us may ask, what is Artificial Intelligence and why is it so important? Artificial Intelligence or AI is the science and engineering of making intelligent machines.
A drone that can spot sharks and warn people has been developed by Australian researchers. The battery powered, unmanned drone uses an artificial intelligence technology to identify sharks and send out a safety warning through a megaphone. The drones will be used to patrol many main beaches in Australia from the summer of 2017 or 2018. The battery powered, unmanned drones uses an artificial intelligence technology to identify sharks and send out a safety warning through a megaphone. The drone works via real time analysis of overhead footage, and information can be relayed immediately to emergency services, beach lifeguards and beach users to help make safe decisions about getting into the water.
