Improving natural disaster impact detection

Started Aug. 1, 2022

Abstract or project description

In this project, I will train a neural network to classify the satellite images from the xView2 Building Damage Assessment challenge into different levels of building damage. First, I will set up a pipeline that involves reading in data and separating the data into train and test sets. Next, I will construct a neural network and train it on the dataset using a virtual machine. Then I will find existing research that uses the same dataset as this project, and reproduce their model. Lastly, I will improve upon the existing models to obtain results with higher accuracy.
