Open AI Caribbean Challenge: Mapping Disaster Risk from Aerial Imagery is an online data science challenge hosted by DrivenData.
In this challenge, participants will a use a dataset of aerial images in the Caribbean to classify buildings by their roof construction material. This is a good indicator for identifying buildings that are at high risk in the event of natural disasters. Training a model that can make accurate predictions from aerial images can drastically reduce the time and cost of identifying high-risk structures compared to traditional methods.
MathWorks supports this competition by providing complimentary software, learning resources, and a bonus award for the best score achieved using MATLAB and toolboxes.
