Satellite and UAV imagery is exploding at rates that vastly exceed human ability to analyze and interpret the data. From agriculture to urban planning, disaster relief to insurance, conservation to earth science, the Chooch Visual AI platform increases both throughput and accuracy. Chooch AI empowers geospatial analysis both on the edge and in the cloud, through dense classification, object detection, and rectangular and polygonal segmentation techniques.
Examples of how Chooch has built machine learning and visual AI models to address our clients’ geospatial needs include:
Chooch AI is a complete Visual AI solution. We provide AI training and models for any visual data for enterprise deployments. Chooch AI is a fast, flexible, and accurate platform that can process visual data in any spectrum for a wide range of applications across many industries.
Satellite and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) imagery is exploding at rates that vastly exceed humanity’s ability to interpret the data. There are currently more than 2,700 satellites orbiting the Earth, each one producing copious amounts of videos, images, and other data. That’s why governments, militaries, and civil and commercial organizations are increasingly turning to AI and computer vision techniques to process and analyze the geospatial imagery they produce.
Computer vision is a subfield of artificial intelligence that seeks to make computers “see” images and videos at a high level, in a manner approaching human comprehension. Thanks to the applications of computer vision in a wide variety of industries, the research and consulting firm Markets and Markets estimates that the global computer vision industry will grow rapidly from $10.9 billion in 2019 to $17.4 billion in 2024.
The geospatial industry is one of the most promising applications of AI and computer vision. For example, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), a combat support industry of the U.S. Department of Defense, calls artificial intelligence “a necessary force-multiplier for advanced analytics and modeling capabilities,” adding: “Geospatial AI will be needed to support and expand our intelligence professionals’ depth and coverage.” A survey by the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation found that 77 percent of geospatial intelligence professionals believe that human-machine cooperation will be the “new normal” for the industry in the near future.
Of course, intelligence and reconnaissance are just one of the many possible uses of AI for geospatial applications. Below are just a few examples of how Chooch has built machine learning and visual AI models to address our clients’ geospatial needs:
One of the greatest benefits of the Chooch AI platform is its ability to integrate with aircraft, UAVs and satellites alike. If it’s up in the air, it’s capable of holding one of Chooch’s lightweight yet powerful edge devices. Chooch AI models can store thousands of classes as embedded vision on GPUs—all in one compact, energy-efficient package that can be installed on a wide variety of observation vehicles.
