Machine learning in humanitarian relief through employing rule-based verification on aerial imagery

Development of algorithms using image processing for use in a software framework, which when partly deployed on a drone, will assist humanitarian disaster relief efforts. The motivation comes from experiences in Pakistan where seasonal flood waters often cover infrastructure, making it difficult to deliver aid. The image processing algorithm will enable identification of water bodies, roads and bridges.
