The global commercial drone market is projected to reach $34.5 billion by 2026, growing at an annual rate of 32 percent. As drones have become cheaper and more widely available to consumers, the amount of drone imagery is likewise exploding. So how can you possibly hope to analyze the vast amounts of information that drones are collecting every second? The answer lies in AI and computer vision for drones. Thanks to technological advances in recent years, computer vision models can equal or even exceed human performance on image classification and object detection tasks—within just a fraction of a second.
As computer vision is becoming increasingly sophisticated, it brings business benefits to a wide variety of industries. From defect detection to loss prevention, computer vision is a powerful tool with the potential to improve processes and results in many contexts. But before we dive into the use cases of computer vision, let’s define what it is.
