Monitoring city growth

Use Case

Monitoring city growth

In high-growth cities (mainly in Asia and Africa), it becomes a major challenge for urban planners to keep track of settlements and infrastructure need.

1

Process

Urban planners obtain information of settlements by satellite images and in-situmeasurements. Analysing changes in satellite images needs to be done manually and is cumbersome. Collecting in-situ measurements is time consuming, costly and is often outdated in a few weeks.

2

Algorithm

Computer Vision algorithms can derive patterns from satellite data (radar and optical), perform object detection, image segmentation to detect and classify changes in urban settlements in near-real time.

3

Decision

Urban planners receive automatic alerts on changes and their classification. Based on this information and the development of changes in urban settlement, urban planners decide on their investments in public infrastructure such as sanitation, streets, hospitals, schools and public transportation.

More Use Cases

Handwritten documents can be read out and prefilled using machine learning algorithms. By further input, these documents can be edited again, which again benefits the accuracy of the algorithm.

Electronic patient records can be evaluated using machine learning algorithms. This automatically provides doctors with suggestions for diagnoses and therapy options.

Diagnostic suggestions can be made by analyzing X-ray or MRI images using an algorithm.

Companies working with thousands of customers and suppliers need to categorize their documents so that requests can be handled in time.
