Name of Your Project? Corner Finder AI

What research topic/question your project is going to address? Can deep learning and/or neural networks be used over a set of imagery to identify rectilinear structures which might be undetectable to the human eye (in other words, structures that are buried, or very obfuscated).

What technology will be used in your project? Drones and drone imagery, as well as machine learning concepts like deep learning with training data and neural networks.

What software and hardware will be needed for your project? I would like to make this project so that it can be used with the data the IFS trip collected from Iceland this summer. This also gives me an advantage with testing/learning data, as we created quite a stockpile of the kind of drone imagery I would like to analyse. 

How are you planning to implement? I plan to use python, or another language to create the software for this, possibly with support from some libraries (depending on language).

How is your project different from others? What’s new in your project? From my first hand experience and preliminary research, it seems that most image analysis like this is done through direct processing of data, rather than by training an AI. The scripts we have used are mostly filtering the data that is there, rather than analyzing patterns. I think that this different approach might help us find things we wouldn’t find otherwise.

What’s the difficulties of your project? What problems you might encounter during your project? The main difficulty will likely be the complicated nature of this kind of software. I have a medium level of experience with AI concepts, but something at this level will undoubtedly get murky with details eventually.
