Buzzfeed trains an AI to find spy planes
Posted On 2020-10-02
An interesting article about how Buzzfeed is training an Artificial Intelligence (AI) to detect spy planes circling over San Francisco (mainly law enforcement and other contractors).
That’s an interesting direction… I will have a look at how to do that and detect anomalies in trajectories on my trackers. I expect to see more planes circling due to delay in the local airports (Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou) than spy planes!
More details here on how they use a Random Forests algorithm to classify potential candidates. I found Random Forests libraries in Python, so that definitely going in my to do list.
