Improved Method for Examining Building Damage

10/31/2016 11:33 AM

This report, about use of computer vision to analyze photos of building damage after disasters, is timely. The news of the new quakes in Italy is very sad. Not sure if the technology is available for general use.

“But there is at least 20 or 30 times more data out there from other disasters that we would like to have access to in order to continue training the algorithms,” Dyke says.

Do you really need a computer program to ( analyze ) determine why a building made from unreinforced brick and plaster collapsed in an earthquake ?

For a more timely emergency response, put up a (heavy-duty) hovering drone, carrying a high-quality video camera that transmits ''live'' to a (control-relay) vehicle nearby, and more lives may be saved...
