Our solution is to automatize the detection of illegal mines using satellite images and machine learning algorithms. We share the predictions with government authorities so that they can enforce the law. The next step is to share the technology with them so they can do constant monitoring
Poor environmental practices from illegal mines pollute surrounding areas, contaminating water and fish, and endangering local workers and communities. In Colombia, researchers will use satellite imagery and machine learning to detect illegal mines throughout the country, enabling communities and the government to take actions that will protect people and natural resources.
