Current knowledge of the environment and its effect on Australian Defence operations is crucial in today’s modern world – geospatial information can now be directly harvested using algorithms that ‘see’ features in satellite imagery.
We are excited to announce Urbis’ successful partnership with the Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation (AGO) 2020 AGO Labs Program, coordinated through FrontierSI.
Urbis, together with the Australian Institute of Machine Learning (AIML), have been engaged to focus on machine learning techniques to assess automated imagery analysis, including automated object classification. What this means is using computer vision techniques to identify real world ‘features’ or ‘objects’ in images.
This presents an exciting opportunity for Urbis to develop innovative ways to support information sharing that may improve Federal-level Government processes. In turn, offering a faster and more efficient way of translating satellite image data to effectively aid national management and security efforts.
