Indian Armed Forces ushers in to AI era with AI analysing it's military satellite photos (6/8)

India has a vast expansive fleet of satellites for strategic reconnaissance and surveying areas of interests. 

At present, identifying and locating military objects and potential targets in overhead surveillance pictures is done manually by intelligence personnel trained in imagery interpretation.

India’s Armed Forces have recently initiated a project to adapt artificial intelligence for identifying and indexing military objects in aerial photographs or videos.

Under the project, artificial intelligence and deep learning technology would be used to develop engines and algorithms to analyse satellite photographs as well as video feeds from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for detection, classification, pattern recognition and decision support in real time.
