A crash intro into AI-powered object detection - Picterra

#artificialintelligence

Here the human intelligence in charge is telling the AI model to have a look at these sections of the image. At this stage, only the human knows what is in the selected spots --sheep on a background in full shadow, sheep on the grass, and sheep on the bare ground. Defining areas where you know there are not examples of your object of interest helps the algorithm by enabling it to understand what you are NOT looking for looks like. The AI model will use these sections of your image as counterexamples. It is particularly helpful to draw the attention of the algorithm to areas where you have objects that look similar to your object of interest, but which are not that for which you are looking.

Major Geospatial technology trends for 2019

#artificialintelligence

Geospatial technology is ubiquitous and the expanse of its reach in multiple fields is growing rapidly. Most technologies require a spatial component and it is one of the pillars of emerging technologies. Be it our day-to-day activities or cutting edge futuristic research, none can be visualized without geospatial information. In 2019, new trends in geospatial technology would have an impact on multiple sectors. Let's have a look at the major geospatial trends for 2019.


Innovating drone technology in India for a vibrant economy and sustainable development

#artificialintelligence

When it comes to drone technology, the focus in India is mainly on either amateur photography drones or military applications of drones in India. But between these two ends of the spectrum, lies the whole gamut of drone technology. The drone startup sector is nascent in India and is still to make its mark. But its prospects are promising and under the right policies and an able vision, drones can contribute a lot to Indian economy as well as help in solving many social and ecological problems. The fast-adoption of drone technology would give added advantage to India particularly in the sector of agriculture.
