Buzzfeed trains an AI to find spy planes

An interesting article about how Buzzfeed is training an Artificial Intelligence (AI) to detect 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.
